I filed an EEOC complaint back in 2014. I was working at a USPS distribution center. When I began work there I was 4 months pregnant. I didn't let my supervisors know until about 2 months into working there. I requested a day off to get an ultrasound. After that they asked me to provide drs notes which I did. Couple weeks later I was sexually harassed by a permanent employee. I let my supervisors know and they told me to write out a statement. I was unaware that I could file a formal complaint against this man. They then moved me to another belt with a higher amount of mail to be sorted. This belt was too much for me to handle being pregnant. They then moved me back and tried to move the man but occasionally he'd say hello to me. After this incident I began to have problems everywhere I went. At 2 and a half months my supervisor finally gave me my 30 day and 60 day evaluation and let me know I started out great but then told me that I was doing a terrible job and that no one liked me. He complained that I complained a lot. How was I supposed to improve if I didn't know I was doing so terrible until 2 months in? There's more to tell but I have ran out of space.
