La banalisation du harcèlement en milieu de travail : une vision de promotion de la santé

Abstract : The trivialization of sexual and psychological harassment at work is a phenomenon that is still not enough studied in the literature but omnipresent in the workplace. However, psychological and sexual violence at work is difficult for the workers to handle and denouncing it could discredit them in their position of professional missions. Added to this fear of job loss, the longwindedness justice system and the fear of stigmatization strongly discourage victims from reporting their situation. As a result, they integrate violence into their professional practices and participate in its daily trivialization. Through several qualitative survey techniques (semi-structured interviews, focus group, participant observation), this study supports the results already present in the literature. It demonstrates many forms of trivialization of harassment at work and the multiple impacts it has, on the lives of victims. Conducted within the GAIHST, the study relied on the stories of victims who are customers of the organization as well as on the experience of professionals competent in the field of harassment at work. The study highlighted several possible recommendations according to a health promotion approach, in order to improve the condition of the victims of harassment at work who undergo its everyday trivialization.
