Workplace Abuse Types

Workplace abuse is behavior that causes workers emotional or physical harm. Harassment, discrimination, bullying and violence are forms of workplace abuse.

These behaviors aren’t always distinguishable from one another because they frequently overlap. Harassment can be discriminatory, bullying can be a form of harassment, and any of these behaviors can lead to workplace violence.

Workplace Discrimination

Discriminatory behavior treats workers unfairly on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age or genetic information. Discrimination is prohibited by federal and state laws.

Unfair actions include harassment, retaliation, denying employment opportunities and making decisions that adversely affect people in these categories. Anti-discrimination laws cover all areas of employment, ranging from hiring and firing, to pay, disability leave, training and layoffs.

Workplace Bullying

Workplace bullying ranges from isolating to verbally threatening fellow workers. Bullies can cause anxiety, depression, fear and post-traumatic disorder symptoms in their victims.

A person who threatens a coworker with physical harm is considered a typical bully. However, the supervisor who regularly demeans an employee or threatens to fire him also is a bully.

Bullies sometimes ignore their victims to make them feel nonexistent. Bullies also use other tactics to humiliate their victims, such as gossiping and spreading lies about them or sabotaging their work.

Workplace Violence

The federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration defines workplace violence as an act or threat of physical harm against another person at the work site. Abusers might physically assault their victims or use verbal abuse to intimidate them.

Workplace violence can lead to homicide, which is the fourth leading cause of occupational injuries in the U.S., according to OSHA. The agency also reports that violence leading to homicide takes the lives of women in the workplace more than any other cause.

Factors that put workers at risk for violence include working alone, at night or in isolated areas. Cashiers and others who exchange money with the public also are at high risk for violence. Law enforcement agents, delivery drivers, health care workers and public and customer service personnel are routinely victims.

Workplace Harassment

Harassment consists of actions or comments that a worker finds offensive. The worker doesn’t have to be the harasser’s target; he can be a third party who hears or witnesses the behavior.

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, harassment becomes unlawful when it’s so severe that it creates a hostile workplace for an employee or the employee has to put up with the misconduct to keep her job.

Bullying, discrimination and violence often are categorized as workplace harassment. Therefore, harassment victims suffer the same emotional, physical and social effects as the other forms of workplace abuse.

OSHA recommends that workplaces adopt zero-tolerance policies for violence and have enforcement procedures in place to protect employees. The agency suggests that employers set up workplace violence prevention programs and systems that allow workers to report violent activities.

The EEOC recommends zero-tolerance policies for violence, bullying, discrimination and harassment. The commission enforces laws covering workplace abuse.

Quality Content Outsourcing

quality content outsourcing

 

 

Quality content outsourcing nightmares can occur when you depend on a non-native English writing outsourcer to write your content.

Outsourcing content without even checking it can spell disaster for your business. Below is a perfect example.

I just finished writing a product review for a crappy product, (200 Cash Hack), yea, they’re hacks alright, but that is not the purpose here, so on to the example.

After writing and posting the article, I decided to do a Google search to see if anyone else has written the truth about this product yet.

On the first page of Google, I came across this article;

(Please keep in mind that this is NOT my writing below)

$200 Cash Hack This amazing system will reveal exactly what you need to do straighten your bow legs or knock knees without the need for invasive and dangerous surgery the book that provide you with real solution to this problem.
What Is Exactly Bow Legs No More? $200 Cash Hack Bow Legs No More is a comprehensive step-by-step program is easy to follow, regardless of experience, age or gender. Used by thousands throughout the world with dramatic results,Could that be your quality content outsourcing nightmare?For starters, this program name is wrong, the $ sign is not included in the title, but that is the least of the problems with this article.That article is about bow legs, and knock knees; at first I am thinking that is intentional, but after clicking the links, it is really about the program I just finished writing about.Here’s what most likely happened. Someone took an original article from the program and ran it through an article spinner. Being that they are not a native English speaker, they had no idea the article was just wrong.Judging by the website, because that is the whole review article. There are more tags and links than content. This person has no clue as to what he/she is doing. If they did it themselves, or paid someone, it was a waste. Notice the comma at the end? Yes, that is really the end of the article.Here’s the kicker’ this article made front page of Google. So much for Google’s “improved user experience” efforts that have been a burden to us honest bloggers. I have mentioned this before in some of my videos, and Google is being manipulated.Avoid “quality content outsourcing” scams by hiring a real professional for content creation and SEO. Although these people make the first page of Google through manipulation or accident, they do not stay there long.

Basictech Best in Columbus Award

Randy Baith

The Basictech Best in Columbus Award was given to Basictech Information Services in 2014.

Since revamping the Basictech Information Services website, I am re-posting the press release for the Basictech Best in Columbus Award.

2014 Award Best in Columbus

Receiving awards are a great honor to any business. Basictech Information Services has received this honor from the Columbus Award Program. “Recognizing and honoring the best of business.”

The award was granted to Basictech Information Services for business consultations and investigations in August of 2014.

According to the award website at columbus.amphlet.org; the Columbus Award Program is an annual awards program honoring the achievements and accomplishments of local businesses throughout the Columbus Ohio area. Recognition is given to companies that have shown the ability to use their best practices and implemented programs to generate competitive advantages and long-term value.

Basictech Information Services provides business services such as research, investigations, content creation, advice and counseling. Personal and small business services are provided along with tips for solving problems we all face everyday.

With a YouTube channel and scam busting website, Basictech exposes internet scams and fraud. Randy Baith, owner at Basictech Information Services stated; “any successful business must give back to the community; one must give in order to receive.”

Basictech often gives free information away for the asking. Basictech’s home page states; How can Basictech serve you? Mr Baith is totally transparent and reachable. Prompt, courteous service is something Basictech takes very seriously.

Randy Baith is also a current student (at the time of writing this press release) in his senior year at Liberty University online. His degree program is Bachelor of Science and Interdisciplinary Studies. His cognitive’s are Criminal Justice, Psychology, and Communications.

Mr. Baith also noted that he was surprised to have received the award saying: “I don’t feel I have done anything special, I am just doing what I love.” “I think it is important for a person to love what they do, it adds value to the service they provide.” He also noted that he opened the email while cleaning out his inbox and almost deleted it as spam.

Karen Hartwell commented on Basictech’s services stating: “Thank you so much Randy for helping me set up my EPS. I couldn’t have done it without you. I would’ve gone grey or bald. You were so patient with me,calmed me down,and explained everything so I could understand, went through the whole process with me and answered all my questions. I’m speechless. Just amazing. Think I found my angel!!”
