- Q. I'm currently on leave for PTSD caused by sexual harassment. The owners were aware I was sexually abused when younger.
- A: Employment law cases are fact sensitive so I cannot assess your chances of winning in Court based on the information provided; however, you should definitely file a claim with the EEOC. Mediation is optional; however, if your employer agree to it, it would not hurt you to go through mediation. If mediation fails, you can still request a Right to Sue (after 180 days) and take it to court.
- Q. Can my employer intimidate me into quitting because of health reasons, instead of letting me go on sick leave?
- A: No, an employer cannot intimidate you into quitting because of health reasons. Generally, you can take sick leave if you are eligible, and it is available. Eligibility and availability would depend on the sick leave policy of your employer.
- Q. My manager has been touching me inappropriately. What can I do?
- A: File a claim with the EEOC for sex discrimination. You can find the intake questionnaire at eeoc.gov. You should also gather any documentation you have to prove that you have reported these instances to the District Manager.
