Speaking up takes courage. This story is all too familiar. A former employee was sexually assaulted and then fired in retaliation for reporting the incidents. The company interviewed no witnesses other than the male employee in question. In both instances, the male employee professed to be too drunk to remember. Then the company said she was fired because of performance.
This type of treatment has to stop. At Livelihood Law, we work to hold employers accountable for their biased investigations.
