Reporting and investigation procedure for sexual harassment and other forms of harassment

 

 

 

If you believe that you are being sexually harassed by a co-worker, supervisor, customer or vendor, or if you believe you are being harassed by a co-worker, supervisor, customer or vendor because of your race, color, religion, gender, national origin, age, disability or sexual orientation, you should take these steps:

1) Firmly and clearly tell the person who is harassing you that his or her behavior is unwelcome and should stop at once. If possible, take a witness to this discussion. Write a statement about the incident and what you did to stop it, including dates, times and places. This statement will be helpful if the harassment continues and the company needs to investigate. If you are uncomfortable with telling the person who is harassing you to stop, then proceed to the reporting procedure below.

2) Report the incident to your immediate supervisor, another member of management, any person in the Human Resources Department, the President, General Manager, Distribution Manager or call the Kroger Helpline at 1-800-689-4609 or email your concerns to (helpline@kroger.com). Your report should be as specific as possible, including the name of the person who is harassing you, a description of the conduct and the effect that conduct is having on your working conditions and work performance, and the names of any witnesses who could assist in the investigation. All claims of harassment will be investigated promptly and will be handled professionally and as confidentially as circumstancespermit. Your further participation in the investigation may be necessary, and you will be informed of the outcome. The company will not tolerate reprisals or retaliation against persons reporting alleged harassment or anyone participating in the investigation of the alleged harassment.

 oh one day a few month back when my son was home sick from school, i was sorta sittin' here bored and started to click on all different links and whatnot trying to find out who runs this site and how one can become a Mod.  Quite simply on the bottom of the page under Kroger Employee Forum where it tells you how many people are on right now and memebers you will see Moderators: RC, ADMIN.  Click on their names it comes up RUSTY & Russ Clifford both from MI and both have not been active for years.  Both do not work for Kroger any more. Both do not respond to e-mail sent to them thru this site so that is sorta a dead end.  I guess I could do some detectivework and look for a Russ Clifford in MI but...

Thank you so much for posting this.  I may actually copy and paste this and take it into work to place for the other employees to see with everything that has been going on.

yea drew - you (and everybody on here ) should. kroger management is supposed to abide by several core values. they are HONESTY, INTEGRITY, RESPECT, DIVERSITY, SAFETY, and INCLUSION. 

Honesty doing the right thing & telling the truth
The Company is committed to being honest and fair, and doing whats right for our associates and customers. Associates at all levels are expected to uphold this standard with the Company, other associates and our customers

Integrity living our values in all we do, united approach to how we do business and treat each other
We are accountable to our customers, and to each other, to conduct ourselves every day according to our Core Values

Respect valuing opinions, property and perspectives of others
Every associate deserves to be treated with respect, and to treat others in the same manner. The Company is committed to creating a work environment based on mutual respect and dignity.

plus all managers are to uphold the OPEN DOOR POLICY.  At my past store, I always wanted to go upstairs to my store manager's office and knock on his damn door.  When he peeks out and sees me standing there and says "what's up?"  I would lean into his office and go "hey do you practice the OPEN DOOR POLICY?"  he would then say "yea sure come on in."  i would then head in and sit down in the chair across from his desk and sit there silently for 3 minutes.  he would be looking at me and I at him. Then I would get up and leave. On my way out I would say "Thank you" and head back downstairs to my department.

The problem with some stores is that these damn managers they got do not abide by these policies.  THAT IS WHERE WE NEED TO CALL THEM ON IT!  How can a person accept their paycheck from Kroger who obviously has implanted very detailed plain to read 'ground rules' on business conduct when they are acting in complete polar opposite to what Kroger is trying to instill?  It is downright hypocritical blaphemy to the 'religion of kroger'.

The Kroger hotline number is all bologna!  I called it because I was part of a customer harassing another associate.  I have since realized that it's a hotline to keep the problem from escalating to legal action.  Save your time and energy and go straight to the labor commissioner or hire an attorney or no legal action will be taken.  I thought that by reporting it to the hotline I would get help, but all they've done is swept it under the rug.

My friend was being harassed in the sexual manner. She kept asking said person to stop. No luck. Told management multiple times and what she would do if it continued. No luck. Said person did it AGAIN. He ended up with a bloodied nose and a black eye because he "squeezed her tooshie." Her reward? Lost job. She got a better one though.

The guy lost his too. (Surprisingly)

He got off lucky. Her husband would have out the guy in the hospital for a week or more.

Yo, idiot. This isn't a Kroger-sponsored site. Please don't present any names, location, store details, and any accusations unless you REALLY want to get in deep ****.

 

 

Sincerely,

A fellow employee in arms
