Q: Do I have a case for hostile work environment, discrimination, and/or harassment?
4 months I was subjected to unfair treatment from management and coworkers due to the slander from a coworker. I was harassed and talked about by this co-worker to other co-workers, and outside entities that we were affiliated with, giving them a negative image of me which ultimately cause hostility from them as well. I also woke up with this person in my bedroom at work trying to get into bed with me after I had asked her to leave me alone. I went to 3 levels of management asking for help and nothing was ever done to the person. If i (a male) would have done a quarter of what this person done to me, to her, I would have been fired on the spot. I have multiple emails, audio recordings with management, and text messages where I asked for help and made it known that my work environment was unpleasant and hostile. I also have statement from other coworkers who have dealt with the hostility from this person and one of them has a recording where management told him “we won’t do anything.”
