Suffering in Silence is No Virtue

It is not virtuous or even commendable to suffer silently in the face of harassment, discrimination or retaliation from your employer. An employer, manager or supervisor that engages in bad behavior will likely repeat that behavior if they are not held accountable for it. Your silence robs you of compensation. It could damage your future employment prospects and emotional well-being. It may also lead to unforeseen, destructive societal consequences.
