While at work, I asked that an offensive
colander hanging in my view be removed. My supervisor did not take me very seriously and
brushed me off basically telling me he would bring up to the owner. From al I know it is
documented in company policy that such material was not allowable. I contacted Human resources and the
calendar was taken down. I was of course afraid of retaliation. Then the next day I was called in to my bosses office and
talked to about my job performance. I am now feeling like a target and wonder if I can do anything about this?From: Paul Ajlouny, Esq. Category: Civil Rights Date: 11 Feb 2008 Time: 12:08:17 -0500
Under New York law, employees are entitled to a workplace free of sexual harassment which, can include inappropriate materials as well as behavior.
You did the right thing in reporting it and, you may have a right to sue if you suffer retaliation for doing so.
Please contact me at the number below so that we can discuss this matter in further detail.
