You may be able to cope with bad bosses or annoying coworkers, but swimming with sharks is a whole different matter.

If you're unlucky enough to find yourself in a workplace inhabited by office bullies and sexual predators, or become the victim of discrimination or even slander - it might be time to take action.

Remember, however, that a one-time incident (unless it's outrageously harassing) will not elicit much sympathy under the law. Consistent harassment will.

So, documented occurrences of ongoing harassment are key to winning your day in court. Also note that In many cases simply confronting the person to let them know that you are keeping a tally, or are about to report them, may be the solution to ending it. If not, filing a legal suit may be your only option.

If you think you have a case for striking back, check out top resources around the Web for facts and information, legal advice and tips for dealing with the threat of emotional, physical or sexual harassment on the job...
