HelloThis is Samuel. I am sorry to hear of this matter. Do you know what the policy says about sanctions should it be violated?
And have you reported this violation to HR? What have they said about it?
Thank you.Any local attorney who you would consult with will want to know the sanctions that are to be imposed for such a violation. And they will want to know if you reported the violation. The reason is, you first need to go through all "in house" procedures and give the employer an opportunity to rectify the matter and also if HR has not followed procedure that is the basis of your lawsuit.You would not have a case unless HR has been made aware of the violation, and investigation is done and they fail to administer the sanctions against the employee/supervisor as required by their own policy.That would be the basis of your lawsuit. That the employer failed to apply policy equally across the board. That is discrimination.
Yes. It would. Any policy needs to be followed and applied equally across the board.I apologize for the delay in this response.
Thanks for your patience.
