Question For Employment Lawyers About Wrongful Sexual Harassment?
As Of Tuesday 8/18/09 I Was Suspended From Work For Serious Charges As My Boss Put It. Yesterday I Reported To The Office For A Conference Call With The Head Of Human Resources And Found Out The Charges Were About Sexual Harassment On An Associate I Work With. So Here Is My Story. There Is An Associate I Work With As I'Ve Mentioned Above. She Has Accused Me Of Making Sexual Advances Toward Her,If Not More In The Work Place. She Says She Has 4 Witness' That Witnessed These Events At Work. Although From Personally Being There,None Of These Witness' Were Ever Around When She Spoke To Me When Passed Through That Area On A Patrol Or To Respond To A Call In That Area. As Of Lately,Rumors Have Spread Very Quickly Through The Store About The Two Of Us Having Sex,Me Being Obsessed With Her,Constantly Asking Her Out On Dates,And The List Goes On. So I Began Ignoring Her And Any Calls She Made Completely. Soon After,It Got To The Point Where Whenever She Ran Into On Patrol,She Would Ask Questions Like,Have I Done Something Wrong To You?, Why Don'T You Talk To Me?, What Happened To You And Why Have You Changed? I Have Reported Every One Of These Incidents To My Fellow Lp Officers In The Camera Room Every Time It Happened. From That Point On, She Started Staring At Me Every Time I Passed By Or Was In The Area. So I Asked My Fellow Lpo To Watch Her On The Camera,He Said &Quot;Dude,This Is Starting To Look Like Border Line Obsession.&Quot; The More I Ignored Her The Harder She Tried To Get My Attention. So When Things Didn'T Go Her Way,She Played The Sexual Harassment Card. So,I Denied All Accusations At My Meeting And They Thought It Was A Load Of B.S. After Doing A Little Investigating Of My Own,I Found Out Not Only Was She Married,But As Done This To Few Lp Officers Before I Got There. So She'S Been Known For Doing This. As For Her Witness' I Is Her Sister-In-Law And The Other 3 Are Very Good Friends Of Hers And Knew About This As Well And Are Lying For Her Now. This Has Happened To A Friend Of Mine A Few Months Ago. They Took The Same Steps With Him Even Though The Women Both Consented To The Sexual Joking. They Fired Him For Sexual Harassment ,But When He Got The Letter Of Termination,It Never Once Mentioned That Was There Reason For Termination But It'S On His Record Now. And Now The Same Thing Is Being Done To Me. The Company Never Did An Investigation On Him And Probably Won'T With Me Even Though I Have Quite A Bit Of Proof. And My Last But Not Least My Company Plays Favorites And I Don'T Think It'S Fair When I Am Literally The Only African-American Male Working In The Entire Store. So My Question Is,Since I Will Be Terminated Very Soon From Sexual Harassment,Do I Have Enough To Put Up A Fight In The Matter And Is This Something That May Be Worth Pursuing In Court? This Has Gone For Too Long And Something Needs To Be Done About It Since Our Company Won'T Defend Us. I Have Also Found Out From Another Reliable Source That I Was Also Accused Of Threatening To Beat My Co-Worker With A Baton If I Ever Caught Him Talking To Her Again
Thanks In Advance For Your Answers
You know, when you think about it, SHE was sexually harassing YOU! Man it galls me that only men are punished for this. Women are more than capable of it too, and she clearly was doing it to you, including creating a hostile work environment through slander.
While many states are considered "at-will" (meaning you can be fired for no reason at all at a whim) one of the exceptions is sexual harassment and defamation of character. It may be possible to sue for wrongful termination. It may also be possible to sue her individually for defamation and collect damages as a result of the loss of employment. I don't know what state you are, but your local department of labor might have some more specific advice and/or options. Get in touch with them and retain an attorney for yourself.
EDIT: If race seems to be an issue here (that is, they are being biased against your word because they are racist) heck, go for it. Race is also a exception to at-will too. This is CA's labor department link, and may be useful to you: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/HowToFileDisc...
Are You Impressed By Attorneys?
That They Got Into Law School, Endured It, And Are Now Attorneys?
Why Or Why Not?
I'm guessing you are planning to be or are one. Well I'm currently doing a Law degree and I am fascinated by attorneys and lawyers to be honest.
It requires dedication and an awful lot of hard work. And no not all lawyers are liars like the other answerer said. My lecturer is a human rights lawyer and she sure isn't a liar, there are good lawyers as well.
Have a nice day :)
Dui Lawyer In Atlanta?
I Need One That Can Do As Much To Get The Charges Reduced Or Dropped. Does Anyone Know Of A Reputable Lawyer For Duis?
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Traffic Law. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give FREE, initial consultations? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
