Semira Davis, an employee at New Zealand’s ASB bank, laid a formal complaint against her boss for harassment. Her allegations included unwelcome physical contact and the fact that he was ‘sketching’ her at work – the response? HR replied that he had a ‘knack for it’ (Anthony, 2018).
This, frankly shocking, response sums up the New Zealand attitude towards as very real social issue: Workplace harassment.
