During employment I filed two separate harassment charges against assistant executive director. Within months my Executive director resigned , reassuring me it would not happen again , & Instructed me to always have a third party when dealing with her. Unfortunately , we did not replace the former ED in a timely manner and it worsened ... Soon I was mandated to work night shift , as a nurse ( I held a non nursing job under contracted in administration). Additionally , to work 17 hours straight due to short staff. Days later, placed on medical leave. The assistant ED , refused to assist with retrieving pay stubs , would not allow me on property, and escorted me out of building . This is not our common practice, as we frequently allow staff to enter the building if needed . She would not allow me to retrieve any personal items left in my office ... She continued to harass while on medical leave , mandating NOC shift schedule. I also had physicians note that I was unable to return to my job unless I returned on normal day schedule per contract. She stated I abandoned my position, still unable to arrange picking up my belongings ...3 years worth . I am not sure where to turn.
What is the basis upon which you claim you have been discriminated against? Age, race, sexual orientation etc. Simply because your boss is an SOB does not mean that you have suffered any form of recognized "discrimination". Perhaps you can clarify? Hopefully you have applied for unemployment insurance benefits.
