So all the women on my mums side of the family have heredatory depression. My gran, mum, younger sister (who turned 20 the other day) and myself have it. My sister has been the worst of us so far with 2 attempted suicides and mulitple self harming. Due to living in a different city until July when I'll be moving back the most I can do is call her or talk to her on msn to make sure shes ok. Today she called me and told me about some problems at work.
She was starting to "get better" as I put it until her duty manager decided to throw personal insults at her. Telling her that her IPS (product knowledge and suggestive selling) was rubbish, in a far harsher term than that, and then decided to tell her work mates "there are girls in the world who cry rape and shes one of them".
She told her boss and he's done nothing so instead she went straight to her area manager who has told the director of the company about what this guy has said. The problem is shes now more depressed than ever. She loves her job but doesn't want to go in as long as he is there and also just wants something to be done about him but nothing seems to be happening. As soon as she gets in from work she goes to bed, doesn't want to talk to anybody and is generally worrying me now. I love her to bits but the problem is she can't stand up to this guy because he'll just get nastier and make her worse.
On another note she has witnessed him doing something that could get him the sack, such as taking drugs outside the work area whilst not at work.
Should she tell the company or just leave it be until the directors get off their backsides and does something for her?
She isn't the only person he's been like this with however. He has called two of the members of staff harsh names infront of customers because he thought he could do their job better. I'm concerned about her health because this guy is just making her worse by the day. What do you this she should do?..........and myself for that matter.
