sexual harassment


LawnSite Member
I was curious to know if any of you guys have had a sexual harassment episode, ie woman coming on to you at work etc. Personally i avoid any contact of that sort myself. I do remember this instance that a woman client from many years ago that i had made some personal remarks (come ons) to me but i just brushed them aside and didnt want any involvement with this....share your experiences and things to look out for. thanks

I may not know everything about every walk-behind on the market, but this is a topic that I've had some experience with. <br>Surely you understand that you are in control in those types of situations, as long as you behave in a conservative, professional manner. If a customer is coming on to you, be polite but firmly insist that you're extremely busy and have to get on the road to the next client's project. Walk towards your truck as you say this. The client will get the message that you're serious and not merely flirting. Don't say or do anything around those particular clients that can be construed as 'interest' on your part. And NEVER GO IN HER HOUSE. <p>----------<br>Lanelle<br>

I had a customer make a pass at me but he wasnt my type.<br>And as a profeesional image we NEVER take our shirts off. Even on the hottest days on roof they will be worn.

Sexual harrasment is wrong!!!!<p>Unless it happens to me. :)<br>I wish I was lucky enough to be in that<br>position. But I found that roaring around<br>on a big ugly tractor/slasher is not babe<br>magnet material.
