Bernard Crane's answer How old was the minor, and is the gender the same or different as yours? If we are talking about a 17 year old girl and you are a 19 year old guy, and there was nothing sexual and it was all above-board, you are probably OK. If this was a 12 year old boy or girl and you are over 20, you are probably not in a very good a situation. Either way, you should not have any further contact with the minor, OR with the parents. I wouldn't give them anything, or take their calls either.
Harassment must be severe or pervasive meaning it's recurring. Of course your employer might have a dating policy and violating that is at your own risk.
You might want to run it by HR. I have heard of some employers in NYC asking employees who date to sign "love contracts." I think that's ludicrous and probably not enforceable but if your company requires that think about it if you value your job or if you...
William John Light's answer Your employer has the right to control who enters their premises. If you don't have a restraining order, it is up to the employer to determine whether this person can access the employer's property.
Stephen Arnold Black's answer Yes. You should discuss the case in private with counsel. Most of us take cases on contingency fee, meaning you pay nothing unless the case is resolved to your satisfaction. Call for a free consult.
William John Light's answer Family code section 6250 of California law empowers an officer of the law to request for an emergency restraining order if the officer has reason to believe that the person requiring protection is in immediate danger of domestic violence from the person against whom the restraining order is being sought.
A temporary restraining order lasts between 20 to 25 days. It is issued when the judge believes you are in immediate danger and you need protection before the court rules hears your...
V. Jonas Urba's answer Employees need to report harassment. Of course now the New York State Law protects employees who are sole employees so unwelcome conduct by just the owner of a company would be covered.
You must file charges with the EEOC within 300 days of the last discriminatory action or 1 year to file a complaint with the NYS DHR alternatively.
The timely reporting and or filing is critical because often the retaliation claims are the best. If those who timely reported or witnesses who...
William John Light's answer 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.
Mitchell Feldman's answer No. Although simply harassing you doesn't just automatically create the right to file a lawsuit. You should first report the harassment to your company, and obtain legal advice, including paying for legal advice if this situation is not resolved.
