The manager’s way of treatment changed after this situation and he began to lay restrictions on Hanan at work. Hanan talks about the new position of her manager: “He became angry all the time and started treating me differently, as he started to restrict me in the work by deducting my monthly salary three times under the pretext of being absent from work without justification. He refused to give me leave for four months under the pretext of not having someone on my behalf or under the pretext of preventing leave by a decision of the Directorate of Education, which is a flimsy argument.”
Hanan’s manager did not stop harassing her, however, he repeated the same behavior but in another way: “He tried again to approach me so that this time he harassed me physically and not just verbally as he was touching my body while passing by me. I threatened him that I would report him to the Directorate of Education if he continues with his actions”. Hanan did not make any official action seeking her protection, but merely requested a transfer to another school, and this is what happened.
“Of course, I did not report him, fearing his influence and that of his relatives could tarnishing my reputation, and I was also afraid for my only source of living under these harsh conditions, which I did not want to lose”.
