I had been a victim of bullying and harassment at my place

Customer Question

Hi I had been a victim of bullying and sexual harassment at my place of employement which I worked at since 2008. In march last year I went on sick leave through stress and saw a dr then psychiolgist and remain on unpaid leave.
I have very detailed accounts of it all and have seen a law firm about sexual harassment which was quite severe and escualated in the few months before I went on leave.
My harasser is one of 3 directors and due to fear I did not report it because he is a bully and I am petrified of him.
Now im being told I need proof and witnesses to discredit him.
Is there any way I can prove this because I don't have witnesses because he chose times when I was alone.
I am petrified of him and others are too as he uses stand over tactics.
I don't know what to do to discredit him but I am almost certain he has done this before as he continuously tells people he is in an unhappy marriage and was forced to marry his wife.
I was told yesterday that my case was weak due to the lack of witnesses, please let me know what you think. Thankyou sincerely ***** ***** help

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

In a sexual harassment case as you describe, you need more evidence than your word against his. That evidence can be an audio recording of him harassing you or some co-worker who has experienced the same sexual harassment from him. The EEOC requires some type of evidence to support your claim, which is why you were told yesterday your case was weak.

So you have to either record him harassing you or find some witness with the courage to come forward to testify against him.
