  • Concerned employee: People talking/ laughing LOUDLY

    we have many problems within our company, but one problem that really stands out is people talking/laughing LOUDLY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    please tell me this is a form of harrassment or at least tell me what advise you may have. most of the staff does not have confidence in our HR dept.

    any advise/suggestions ????????? also- is loudness in depts (offices where people are on the phone) considered harrassement ??

    thanks,
    concerned

          the person who responded with "buy earplugs".............Question: Are you a "REAL" lawyer or just trying to convince others you are ?????
          Maybe the loud noise this person is speaking of is very serious and they want to know how the (true) law sees it. Ear plugs may not be an option.
          this is why I question are you really a lawyer?? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

            HELLO CONCERENED EMPLOYEE,

            MAYBE YOU NEED TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR "EMPLOYMENT" SITUATION. DO YOU WORK IN AN OFFICE; CUBICALS OR A PRIVATE OFFICE. HOW IS YOUR DEPT SET UP??? MAYBE YOU ARE NOT ASKING THE WRITE QUESTIONS TO GET YOU ANSWERS. I CAN SEE WHERE THE "EAR PLUG" RESPONSE CAME FROM, BUT IF THIS "EAR PLUG" PERSON IS A LAWYER, THEY WOULD HAVE ASKED YOU MORE QUESTIONS.
            DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND IGNORE THE "EAR PLUG" COMMENT. THIS PERSON IS NOT!!!! A LAWYER AND DOES NOT KNOW YOUR CIRMUMSTANCES AND DOESNT CARE.

            ......ANONOYMOUS

              Perhaps you should ask a lawyer what are the listings of all types of "harrassment" in the workplace. I doubt "loudness" is one of them, but an attorney may take your question more seriously.

              Thanks and good luck to you.

              FYI....Lawyers are responding to these emails.

                  Concerned:

                  That is not really "harassment" in the workplace. And legally there is not too much you can do unless it violates an agreed contract, labor agreement, union rule, employee manual etc. that you have.

                  Talk to higher management. They really should respond if the problem is serious and it distracts you. Any decent company would respond.

                    I'm not a lawyer either but tend to agree with mr. earplugs!

                    Tell your boss to move you to a different quiet area, or quit!

                      The above response is more appropriate. For you (concerned employee), take the advice.

                      Best of Luck!

                        Hello concerned employee,

                        Are you the only person in the dept/company who has/had a complaint regarding noise level in "work areas" ???? Are you on the phone with customers? Can the customers hear others in the background??

                        My advise is to find out if others complain or are concerned/distracted and have them sign a document, then take to upper management.

                        Again - Is this just about you or are others being affected as well ?? You need to do more research.

                        If anyone else reads the comments and responds, please let me know if you would agree.

                        Thanks.

                          Thanks to all who responded.

                          Yes......There are a number of staff who have complained about the "people noise level" within work areas of depts. This is NOT a "one" person complaint. Complaints have been made to management and some of "them" are participants. Also, a number of staff have complained to our HR dept with no luck.

                          Our office is set up where we work in cubicals; side by side. Staff have been informed by other staff about respecting others, as some of us are on the phone speaking with customers. Since management in out
                          dept is also talking/laughing out loud and complaints to HR are being ignored......... What else is left to do! Moving to another area or leaving a company is easy. Dealing with the situation is whats difficult.

                          Thanks again for your advise and commets. I appreciate them even if I dont agree with them as you may need to walk in someone else's shoes sometimes.
