Workplace sexual harassment affects far more women than men, but men are the ones who bear responsibility for ending it. Besides, of course, not harassing women, we need to stand up for them, especially (and unfortunately) as we're more likely to be heard and respected than the victims themselves. Esquire has a guide to noticing, handling, and reporting sexual harassment, including how to escalate a complaint to a superior, HR, and even the press.

Most of us have no idea how we're perceived at work - especially when it comes to our 'personality'. While you can usually hazard a guess as to which workmates like or dislike you, the label attached to your identity is often a mystery. Are you considered to be a slob? A neat freak? A gossip monger? A brown-noser? A dullard?

Picture the scene: you've organised a week off work for some much-needed R&R. On the first day of your holiday, you're struck down with the flu. Instead of sunning it up on the beach, you spend the entire week coughing up phlegm in a hotel bed.

The gig economy — the on-demand, mobile workforce leveraged by the likes of Uber — seems like the dream: whenever you feel like working, you simply turn on your phone, accept the jobs that you want, and ignore the ones you don't. There's no office to go to, and no boss to answer to when you haven't shown your face for a while.

But, as I would discover when I went undercover as a Deliveroo delivery driver, the gig economy is not a one way freeway to wealth and happiness, it's a two-way street.

Dear Lifehacker, Much of your advice around resumes is all about getting your foot in the door -- past the auto-screeners and the six-second glances. But what if I'm already in the door?

In many ways, Geisha Monroe and Mandy Morbid are typical Twitch streamers -- they're gamers who share their play experiences with an online following. They cosplay, they collect game-related memorabilia, they tweet Overwatch memes. And like most streamers, Twitch isn't their job.

Your resume is often the first impression recruiters have of you, so making sure you get the good side of your career in the picture is critical. If you're not having any luck impressing your potential employers, it might be that your resume is missing some critical information that would help you stand out in a sea of also-rans.

Job interviews are notoriously stressful. While you can't really prep for every single question an interviewer is going to hit you with, there are a few questions you can prepare yourself for that will likely set the tone for the remainder of that hour-long interview.

If you're in a job that's clearly awful in at least one aspect, there's at least one upside: it's a lot easier to know that you want to quit. But if you like your team, have a decent salary and a reasonable manager, you'll likely have a more difficult time deciding when to move on.

When somebody gets fired in a movie or TV show, it is usually "effective immediately" with the hapless employee ordered to clear out their desk by the end of the day. Sometimes they are even forcibly removed from the workplace. But is any of this legal? Let's find out.
