A: Good morning, sorry to hear about the situation at work and at least the person who was harassing you is gone. I'm a workers' compensation attorney and this question should be answered by an employment lawyer. You might want to try reposting your inquiry and limit it to employment and sexual harassment law, not criminal or work injury or anything else. That may help you get a more direct response
