Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
HelloThis is Samuel.
I am sorry to hear of this situation. So management says don't worry about it and you are - are you worried the co worker will continue to harass you or that you will be fired? What are your concerns and what information can I provide?
Thank you. So if there is an investigation, you consider revealing you are on meds and what one of the side effects are. I suggest, you can also have your physician write a note you can present to whomever whenever that you are on these meds and this is a side effect. Once you present that to the superior in your employment it would be up to them to advise the other employee that should they continue to make these accusations it will be considered harassment and will be dealt with according to policy. The med and the reason for the med does not need to be disclosed to the co worker. But your superior should be told of the matter so that this is not something that could drag on. In other words, it would stop it in its tracks.
You could consult with a local attorney and have the attorney write a cease and desist letter to the co worker. That will put them on notice that they are being defamatory and if they continue they can be sued.
I suggest, with the information on the meds provided to your supervisor and a letter from the local attorney would stop this nonsense.
