Wrongfully Terminated / Harassment

Asked over 1 year ago - Fort Lauderdale, FL

I was getting unwanted sexual and personal harassments. I complained to the Site Manager but the harassment continued. After making several complaints to management, I was wrongly accused of unwelcome behavior against the company after nine years of employment and subsequently terminated. No written disciplinary action was ever issued to me regarding their complaint. I never received any disciplinary action during my employment and my performance reviews have always been above average. After seven months of unemployment while EEOC was working on the case the company offered me my job back but I refused because it's not all about getting a job back my name has been trashed by many, there are many nasty rumors and its very uncomfortable for me to go back there after all. Today makes it roughly 9 months since EEOC been working on the case and they've been advice me that they'll close the case because they need evidence which DOESNT make sense because I was the one that were been harassed and after making so many complaints I was the ONLY one sent home without even knowing what I did wrong.

Can someone PLEASE advise me what should I do or how they can help? Thanks in advance
