Thank you for your patience. I'm sorry to hear what happened. Unfortunately, because I need to be honest with you, I don't see any potential cause of action here. At the most, Washington State has a three year statute of limitations for a sexual harassment suit. And most discrimination cases require that you file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory act.I also don't see based on these facts a case for emotional distress claim, as the injury must be "severe and pervasive." I'm not saying you certainly weren't understandably upset, but emotional distress requires such injury as to where a person may have to seek medical treatment (therapy) and/or ongoing medication. Even if there were a claim here, it too has a 3 year statute of limitations to bring a lawsuit in Washington State, so it would be barred.I'm sorry I cannot tell you otherwise.
