Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
there a couple of issues here
judging you based on numbers or other grounds is permitted and legal change
sexual harassment and discrimination is not, and any action against you or failure to act on complaint would be illegal and actionable against the offending person, the supervisor, and the employer under principal-agency theory
It may be escalated through local counsel and the eeoc in these situations
going above his head on such matters is not basis for taking any action against you!
Kindly let me know if the answer is clear and helpful, or if I may clarify anything
awaiting your reply
The president of the college sent me an email yesterday that states that going above his head is unacceptable and he will take action. I am to meet with him at 9:00 tomorrow morning and frankly, I am afraid. I have never been written up or fired. I would be willing to pay more to have some legal advise as what I do in this meeting.
