Pole Dancing during work breaks?

186149-sexual-harassmentA FEMALE road construction worker is considering whether to sue a Victorian contractor over claims she was harassed for two horrendous years.

Kate Mathews, 37, the only woman employed in the company’s roadwork gangs, claims she was forced to endure countless remarks and questions about her sex life.

She says she was told she could provide pole-dancing entertainment for the men during work breaks.

I have a simple test for this sort of harassment.

The mother/sister test.

If you wouldn’t behave like that to your mother or sister, then you shouldn’t be behaving like to your co-worker.

The final straw for Kate Mathews?  She left after one co-worker told her he was going to rape her.
