I know quite a few who were “compensated.” More like silenced, as they were told to keep quiet and the people were allowed to carry on. In my case, i witnessed terrible behaviour and decided I needed to say something. Once I committed to making the complaint, I had 3 other people put their names to the complaint. Found out that 23 people had left the area in 18 months because of one person.
Although an unpleasant experience, it was handled professionally and fair and the outcome was good.
The problem for my career was that I made the complaint in the first place. This was in 2011, so I hope things have improved and that people can make a stand against harassment without fear of losing their job/promotion opportunities.
