This depends on how long ago this happened...what was the month of the assault?

Thanks

Can you tell me, did she file a complaint with the EEOC or AK workplace fairness? IF so how long ago?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
No just with the state troopers here in Ak.

THanks
I am sorry to be the one to bear bad news. You have waited too long. Under both state and federal law, if you want to sue the employer for this, the employee MUST make a complaint with either the EEOC or AK workplace fairness within 180 days of the event. SInce more than 180 days have elapsed, it is too late to bring a claim

This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that she can still file a claim and sue, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!

Please let me know if you have more questions. Happy to help if I can.
