IVE TOLD THE BOSS ABOUT IT, NO
THING WAS DONE 4 TIMES, FINALLY CALLED HUMAN RESOURCES AND THEY ARE INVESTIGATING THE MATTER,
You should contact an attorney to discuss this. I would be happy to speak with you. Best of luck.
If you are a woman, and the chef is a man or African American, the chef is, white this is pretty clearly a case of sexual or racial harassment on the facts, but more information is needed. It is also clearly a case of battery for which you can sue at least the chef, and perhaps the employer. As to the hr investigation, be very careful. My experience has been that a lot of companies target the victim after a report is made. You can contact the OHio CIvil RIghts Commission and ask to speak to an investigator. There are some good ones. You should definitely write down everything that has happened so far and particularly write down the names and contact information for any witnesses. If you get no help from HR do contact an experienced employment lawyer. Caryn Groedel in Cleveland is excellent.
No one has the right to lay his or her hands on you without your permission. If you have already documented these incidents with the Human Resources Department, I would suggest contacting an employment attorney who can help you through the investigation process and make sure that your rights are protected.
