Where did the nude picture come from? How did this man obtain it? Who started the rumors? Were they true?
Thank you for your question.
This may be a form of sexual harassment for which your employer and the employee can be held liable. However, more troubling is whether there are private pictures floating around. If someone has taken private pictures of you without your consent and is passing them out, that is something that may need to be reported to the authorities at the state and even the federal level. Such an action is tantamount to stalking.
If you can prove that these picture were sent around your work and your employer knew and did nothing about it, then you may have an action for sexual harassment. You may consider taking your employee manual, your evidence of the misconduct and any written paperwork to a local employment law attorney who can see your evidence and assess the potential merits of your case.
