Riverside, CA asked in Employment Law and Sexual Harassment for California

Q: False allegations of sexual harassment during employment transition from consultant to city resulting in resignation.

After false allegations co worker whom I dated ended the relationship. After one day of employment the awkwardness of going through the investigation and false rumors. I resigned effective immediately. I was reinstated as a consultant however the city denied my return, the HR Director asked the co worker whom I dated if she would be comfortable if I returned as a consultant, she said no. When we were both questioned She denied having a dating relationship with me. I on the other hand said we were dating.The co worker wasn’t gonna reveal the truth after denying having a dating relationship. I was denied to return back to that city as a consultant. I later learned that the HR directors decision to return me back as a consultant was based off the co workers input of not being comfortable if I returned as a consultant. My one day of employment and resignation resulted in me being banned from future employment with that city.
