Customer Question
I work for a corporation...
I work for a corporation located in Cleveland, TN. I am harassed daily for being homosexual. It is a smaller business and I am known throughout the workplace. There is a consistent barrage of gay slander produced throughout the workplace. From employees, to Mangers, to even human resources. I have been verbally abused, and physically touched inappropriately. I fear they are soon going to fire me at no fault of my own. Is there something I can do about this. I have little evidence besides testimonies from other workers.

I work in a restaurant. As a waitress, 6 months ago one of the line cooks commented on the appearance of my breasts. I reported this to my employer and she gave this individual a verbal warning. He has not done this since. One week ago this same line cook was angry at me when I requested he change the appearance of a plate. He came around the line and threw a steak at me. There were no eye witnesses and I say it hit me in the face and he claims it never touched my body. Would this warrant a discrimination claim based on sex? … read more
