Sexual Harassment

I filed a sexual harassment claim against my supervisor. Since then he has retaliated against me in a number of ways, including refusing to sign my time sheet and preventing me from getting my pay this month. He has no basis. What can I do? Another woman filed a claim against another manager and was fired as a result, with no justification. Can City Colleges of Chicago get away with this?

Thanks for your note to FEMINIST.COM. As I am not an expert on Sexual Harassment cases, I suggest that you contact 9to5, National Association of Working Women at #414-274-0925. They have a national "Job Problem Hotline" at 1-800-522-0925 to deal with these types of complaints--and hopefully they can help you.

Although I can't offer any specific and/or legal advice, I can say that "yes", you can do something and by doing anything you will pave the way for others. And, unfortunately, sexual harassment is still something that people get away with everyday--in every work environment. It's injustice at its peak. Good luck.
