Any organization shall have a hierarchy for reporting any malfunctions. You may take up the matter with the higher authorities. You can also take up the matter through the Trade Union in the organisation in which you may be a member

what is harassement and how are you connected.

Start by approaching the human resource department of your company. It will be in a position to explain where you stand legally and will help resolve the issue. You can also lodge a formal complaint directly with the department and should give it adequate time to evaluate your situation and suggest a solution. If you are not satisfied with the response, you can file a court case.

Cases of mental harassment can be filed in the civil court as well as a criminal court if you add the charge of criminal intimidation. Consult a lawyer to see if your case can be settled through arbitration or by a labor tribunal as this is easier and more cost-efficient.

If you decide to take the matter to court, ensure that you prepare yourself well for it. Maintain a record of all the incidents that you think were wrong or in violation of your rights. If possible, note down the date and time as well. This will be immensely useful to your lawyer, who will be able to ascertain if you have a case at all. You can use this information even while discussing the matter with the HR team.
