I am sure that the State of Pennsylvania has a state agency that investigates the same laws that the EEOC does, and will accept your complaints of sexual harassment and retaliation for speaking out.

I was in a work meeting with 3 "executive leaders" and myself. At the very start of the meeting the top lead asked how my wife was. I answered that she was good and he immediately said "I still haven't met her, I don't believe you have a wife, you probably have a 300 pound man at home."... Read more »
Sounds like you need another company. It's an interesting question whether or not it's sexual harassment if they merely assume something (that isn't true). For instance may a person who is not of color be "racially harassed " when they aren't the protected group? No. However make a note of who said...Read more »

If you do not file it prior to sentencing, you can file a motion to withdraw the guilty plea for ten days after the sentencing hearing. If you do not do that, you would have a...Read more »
She's with another person and they have children together and I fear the repercussions on my son because she claims she's pregnant to him but has not shown proof of pregnancy and claims she's around 4 weeks. Is there something I can do as a parent?
A little boy was shoving a toy in my daughters bottom. The teacher eventually found them and stopped it. She has definitely been affected by this and will most likely need some years of therapy. Idk what to do...
This is a serious offense. Because I don't know all the details, it is very hard to say but based on the two pieces of information you have listed, a prior sex charge and being on probation, you would be wise to immediately find a qualified criminal defense attorney.
