Letter to a Workplace Harasser

Massachusetts Institute of Technology Sloan School of Management adjunct professor and former Ombuds, Mary Rowe, has some advice for employees who want to confront a workplace harasser. Rowe is the author of “‘Drafting a Letter’ for People Dealing with Harassment or Bullying: How Did this Option Evolve? How May it Help?”

Rowe recommends dividing a letter into three parts: 1. Start with the facts; 2. Add your opinions; and 3. State the desired remediation. She further say, "If you do decide to send the letter, ask one or two people you trust, in private, to review it with you, or at least consider asking someone you trust for their perspective on the situation."
