Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
What should I do if they do nothing and it still continues?
I may be afraid that if I did contact the EEOC the company would find out and may fire me, I have a good paying job, but cannot afford to go without a job for a long period of time.
I think it is best to start looking for a new job, so if it does continue, I will get a new job and then, I will not have to suffer economic consequences. Would I be able to say I was forced to find a new job because I was being harassed?
What is the best way to get evidence? Through email? If it is just through conversations, it is my word against theirs.
I forwarded the email to my personal email address.
What can the EEOC do if they find a company in violation fine them? Order them to compensate the victim? Or just give them a warning.
Ok, thank you!
