After I complained about harassment the office manager was extremely angry with me and told me to remove all photos of my child from the office space. I only had one avatar photo of my daughter on my Skype.

Is this response from management to a casual harassment claim appropriate?

I don't see the connection between harassment and a photo of a child but I felt that this was retaliatory behavior. The harassment wasn't even about the child.

I took the photo down and the manager talked to some harassers but then I was socially ostracized by the harassers.

Is any of the behavior retaliation?

    You have 10 questions and 8 are about harassment. 3 about children and harassment. 8 questions are closed. Yes it is retaliation. They are tired of your harassment charges. – paparazzo Apr 21 '16 at 23:13

    Are you asking us to read their minds, or are you asking for a legal opinion? Neither is on topic here. Voting to close. – keshlam Apr 21 '16 at 23:18

    I'd imagine you'll be under heavier scrutiny now than you were based upon all these questions you posted. It sounds to me like you are not really a fit for the particular workplace you're in. – Dan Apr 22 '16 at 13:05

    Given all the questions about harassment, have you considered just getting another job? – Chris E Apr 22 '16 at 16:11
  • @ChristopherEstep It does seem very odd to me that someone would stay in such a place especially in the degree of stress/frustration said harasser caused. I think it's time for the OP to consider cutting ties with the company or consulting a lawyer on the subject. It makes no sense to me to try and "fix" it by antagonizing everyone at the office. I would also say now the OP is on a thin line between getting fired or put on remedial tasks. Everyone will get sick of it especially if it is a constant ongoing problem. – Dan Apr 22 '16 at 19:05

Yes it is retaliation. Based on your question history you have made multiple harassment charges and many include children.
