Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about harassment by customer: My manager and director (69 yrs old) are white as well as the client (looks about 60 yrs old). I am a 22 yr old, African American female.
I work at a spa in Georgia and have been verbally harassed by one of the spa’s clients every time she comes into the spa. This has happened on more than 4 occasions. Each time this has happened, I went to my spa director and asked that she speak with this client and demand that she stops harassing me. Each time I am told that because the client spends a lot of money that I should just “ignore it.” So over the last three months, I tried to ignore it.
