Hello. I'm writing tonight regarding an employment law
question. On November 23, I spoke with my supervisor to report to him a female co-worker who had been harassing me in the workplace and discriminating against me based on my religion. He stated to me that he would discuss this issue with the human resources manager when the office opened on Monday, November 26. On November 24, I also sent a certified letter to my human resources manager, advising him that I was filing a formal complaint of harassment and discrimination
against this particular female co-worker. On Sunday, November 25, I also spoke with my scheduling manager regarding a different matter, and discussed with her the issues I was having with my female co-worker and notified her of the fact that I was being harassed and discriminated against based on my religious beliefs by this particular co-worker. To this day, after notifying three supervisors (my site supervisor, my scheduling manager, and the HR manager) no has gotten in touch with me regarding this matter. On November 23, when I spoke with my site supervisor regarding this issue, I also told him that I did not want to continue working with this particular co-worker, and as a result, my entire schedule has been changed from all overnight shifts to a combination of day shifts, evening shifts, and night shifts in order to achieve my 40 hours. This morning, I was running a little late for work due to a big accident causing a lot of traffic on my way into work. I called prior to my work time starting to advise them that I would be running late due to the traffic accident. My shift is scheduled to start at 8:00am, and when I got there at 8:20, I was forced by another co-worker, who is just an employee, to write that I arrived at 8:30am instead of 8:20am on the timesheets. My supervisor was there the entire time, witnessed this, and told me in front of the other employee that he was correct and that I needed to put on my timesheet the additional 10 minutes to make it 8:30 instead of 8:20. They both stated to me that the time goes in increments, and that it is in the handbook
regarding this procedure. I checked my handbook this evening when I got home, and it states this regarding timekeeping: "You are required to complete a daily timesheet. You must record the actual time you begin work and the actual time you end work." I believe that my supervisor is attempting to intimidate me and is doing so because of the complaint I filed against my female co-worker. I have several questions regarding the information provided: 1)Isn't my company obligated to investigate my claims of harassment against my female co-worker? Shouldn't they have contacted me by now regarding this, considering the fact that I first notified my employer about this on November 23? Is there any time limit for my employer beginning an investigation into this matter? 2)Is it legal for my supervisor to force me to write on my timesheet that I came in at 8:30am when I was there at 8:20am when the handbook states nothing about time increments with regards XXXXX XXXXX? Does it seem as though my supervisor is attempting to intimidate me because of the complaint I filed against my female co-worker?
