What do you do if there are male coworkers spreading rumors that you and them are more than coworkers? This is incredibly frustrating and makes me not want to engage with male coworkers if they mistake kindness for flirting.

Talk to them if you feel comfortable. If not contact your TC and ask them to attend the call. If your TC is unresponsive- call the ethics line and ask for their help with the situation. Don’t ignore it.


Report to HR, that's definitely not appropriate.
Ive seen similar case before where the guy was terminated after repetitive warnings


Hey OP! I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this. If you’re close to your counselor and you would feel comfortable, I would highly recommend getting them involved. If not, you can always call the Ethics Hotline. You are (unfortunately) not the first person to deal with this in the Firm, they can absolutely help you and they are actually really great to work with. DM me if you want to chat through anything (even just anonymously!) or if you have any questions.

I just received an email from the company inviting me to permanently join - currently I work as a contractor and they’re inviting to join the team - the proposal is less than I make it as a contractor ( considering that I won’t be able to do overtime - and I do a lot - I’ll make 15% less than I’m making now). Also both amounts seems low compared to the industry. Any advice? Thank you!
