You aren't "18,19", you are one or the other. Regardless of which age you are, you are an adult.

Your partner cannot "consent". Your partner isn't old enough to legally give "consent" because she is a child and doesn't fully understand the consequences of her conduct.

William John Light's answer
To be a hostile work environment, the comments have to be pervasive (meaning a lot of them) or severe, such that they alter your working environment. Without knowing exactly what was said, and when, and the context, and how many times, it would be impossible to evaluate whether you have anything approaching a hostile work environment claim.

You can complain to HR, or to the DFEH (https://www.dfeh.ca.gov/complaint-process/file-a-complaint/). If you are retaliated against, you have a...

It's very hard to decipher what is happening here, but it sounds like you have been the victim of a crime, such as identity theft. If that is accurate, contact the Placentia Police Dept., Miscellaneous Crimes Unit to report what has happened. (714) 993-8146. You may also want to consider a Restraining Order to prevent this person from contacting and/or using your likeness on social media.

You need an attorney who specializes in Title IX work. Your daughter has certain rights that can be enforced through the Title IX process.

Do a search for “Title IX attorney San Francisco” and that should be a good place to start.

I’m sorry this is happening to you daughter. Good luck.

Hire a criminal defense attorney. There is no recourse against a false accusation except defending yourself unless your son is the victim of intentional misconduct. It would be a very difficult case to claim that a 5 year old was intentionally lying and that a psychologist was intentionally lying.

Q: How can I ask out my intern without being reported for sexual harassment?

Answered on Jul 5, 2018
William John Light's answer
Why don't you ask your HR dept. what they think of your idea? If you like your intern that much, quit your job, then ask him/her out. What you are describing is per se sexual harassment. Power disparity, ability to affect the intern's career. No decision your intern makes can possibly be unaffected by those factors. Which make you a jerk for putting him/her in that position.
