Fired for turning down sex with supervisor?

Dear Willie: Recently, I was fired from my job because I reported my supervisor for inviting me out and wanting a sexual relationship though I told I am so many times I am not interested.

I had been working at this business for two years and since the time I started this supervisor had been harassing me, telling me he loved me and wanted to do things with me. He offered me money and to take me to Martinique.

When the harassment started I had a boyfriend and I told my boyfriend about it. He told me to leave the job but I loved my job. My boyfriend and I broke up because I refused to leave the job over the harassment. I told my boyfriend I will not allow anyone to let me leave a good job but my boyfriend thought I was entertaining the supervisor.

During the time I was with my boyfriend, the supervisor calmed on the advances but when he found out I became single he started the harassment again. I threatened to report him to the boss but he made fun of me that I could “do whatever I want.”

Well I did just that only to be told by the boss that my services are no longer needed because the company is experiencing “constraints due to the current national fiscal crisis”. Willie, that’s b****t because the company makes plenty money.

I believe I was set up and fired. I want to take this further. Advise me please, thank you.

Dear Miss: I am sorry to hear about your job loss. I find it strange that you took so long to report this matter.

I would advise you to take this matter to the Department of Labour for advice. It is possible that you were wrongfully terminated but please ensure you get official and legal advice.

Willie

  5. speaking from a guy perspective I don't give the bf wrong for leaving you because how can you allow a guy to harass you for that long before bringing up to higher management. Friend just be honest that you like the attention you was getting.

    • Such an idiot. Poor girl was probably terrified of going to the boss. And indeed her fears were proven to be justified as she was fired.

      • maybe not just fears of getting fired. the supervisor making fun of her when she threatened to take it up also shows the arrogance of that a-hole; maybe he intimidated her.

        i hope she has the strength to make some heads roll on this and name and shame this supervisor!

  7. Is the supervisor related to the boss? I can't understand why would any employer condone sexual harassment in his/her company. Fight them to the end probably it will open other employers eyes that this behavior won't be tolerated

  8. I wonder why people act so surprise when what they already know is highlighted. It goes on everyday, reality is alot of women get jobs because the employer want to **** dem.

  9. Those are the issues that our worthless politicians need to talk about and pass laws to ensure this is enforced and punish those in middle management who engage in such activities.

    Our ST Lucian women have the right to live and work in an environment free from any form of harassment (especially sexual harassment.)
    We need to protect our women from such sexual predators.

    I hope one day, we do get a group of Politicians that truly care about the IT'S PEOPLE, especially the vulnerable.
