So my first question was about breach of confidentiality. This next one is to see if I have a possible sexual harassment
case against my employer.
As I mentioned, I have heart issues. June of 2012 I had a major open heart operation. After my operation I struggled mightily with issues of severe depression and anxiety. A lot of it was cause by stresses involving work and my leave.
I missed three months of work on employer benefit short-term disability leave. Applying for and getting the leave approved was a very difficult. My manager, the woman in the story above, was very helpful in the process of getting all the necessary paper work completed and finally getting my leave approved so I wouldn't be fired. I was very grateful for all her help and gave her a small bouquet of flowers to express my appreciation.
Again, I was very depressed after my surgery. In late Oct 2012 I was committed to a psych ward for an attempt at suicide. So once again I needed to file for short-term disability with my employer and she was happy to help as before. Though I didn't need to tell her why I was filling for STD leave I did confide in her since she seemed to be such a good friend before.
It was after this that she admitted to me that she found me very attractive. I thanked her for the compliment. Then she started giving me gifts, simple things like food and other various small items. Eventually she admitted to me she "wanted" me. She started asking me to lunch. I initially declined telling her that I knew she was married and I didn't think it was appropriate and that we should just be friends.
She continued to give me small gifts and make flirty advances. She would often tell me her marriage was falling apart and she was planning to file for divorce once she could afford it.
Being as depressed as I was I eventually gave into her advances. It felt good to have some one shower me with attention and be so nice. We started a more intimate relationship. The gifts became bigger. She even started getting me out of my normal work duties for hours at a time just so I could sit at her desk and talk with her. One of the male manager even commented to me that "If I didn't know she was married I would think you two were together. She acts like she is your mom."
Its embarrassing to say, but because of my health conditions and the various medications I am on, my sexual stamina potency isn't what it should be for a man my age. I think this eventually got to her. She suddenly ended the relationship saying I would never accept her children.
The favors stopped... for the most part, every once in awhile she would still advance on me. Like an on-off type thing. Then it stopped all together.
People started treating me different. Other managers, who are very good friends with her started ignoring me, even when I was asking for help with work related stuff. Her best friend even once threatened to punch me in the face if I didn't "get out of her bubble" with her fists raised at me. I simply stopped by her desk to say hi and chat a little.
It got to the point I felt like I needed to beg managers for help if I needed it. My anxiety and depression started to flood back to me. I ended up having a heart attack like episode at work at taken out in an ambulance.
It was later that day that I confronted her via text why I was being treated the way I was at work and that was when it was revealed she was now with another one of her direct subordinates.
The rest of the story you already know.
Looking back, I feel like she took advantage of my fragile state and used me and now I am afraid to go to work because of how I have been treated and now because of the rumors about me
What do you think... Is there a possible case there?
