I feel like it is going to prevent me from getting promoted in the future.
also, it might make me get transferred and i think thats a bad solution to the problem. That will be like pushing it under the rug.
Also, can i get compensated for the harrassment, or can i somehow get him fired?
You can't be retaliated against because of reporting improper actions of a co-worker. Also, you can't be fired because of this - if you were, you can sue for wrongful termination.
You can sue for harassment and seek damages.
last couple of questions before i accept.
How much is a normal compensation?
If they do not fire him can i do anything more to get him fired?
i am not getting written up for this but i would like to be compensated for the 2 hrs he sent me home for and also if there is a harrassment case :
Am i going to be but on paid leave or will i be transferred? or just continue to work as normal until it is taken care of?
I am guessing they will not let us work together still if i file harrassment?
Thanks for your help!
