I reported sexually harassment and assault to my assistant general manager, general manager, district manager and even a few headquarter individuals. He was wrote up after shoving a ruler into my bottom on camera in front of a costumer. He was then transfered to a local store he had been picking up shifts at. 2 weeks later he was brought back without my permission. He harassed me for 4 months then when I turned him in again and put in my 2 weeks notice he was promoted. He is best friends with the store manager who told me to keep my mouth shut or I "would regret it" I lost my sanity, my sobriety, my marriage, my job & almost my freedom over this company. Can I do anything about it? Or am I just left to pick up the parts and try my best to move on?
This sounds egregious! You need to immediately make contact with the EEOC regarding this. This sounds like sexual harassment and you did the right thing by reporting it. The company can be liable for failing to take proper action and, in fact, threatened you. This could also be a constructive discharge case, meaning working conditions were so intolerable that you had to resign. It’s the equivalent of being terminated. Your state may also have state-level laws that deal with sexual harassment.
Agree. Contact a Kentucky employment law attorney immediately. Kentucky laws will cover this type of discrimination and give you an avenue of recovery. Don't delay contact an attorney today.
