  • Harassment in the workplace South Carolina

    How often does an employee have to be wrongly accused by his or her supervisor before it is considered harrassment? Most of this supervisor's employees are wrongly accused from time to time. He has stated that he is not going to change but that he will admit if he has made a mistake. That does not help with all the anxiety and lost sleep he has caused. He has not apologized for all of his false accusations in the past. Most of the other supervisors do not care for this person because of his attitude. None of the office girls have any use for him at all.

    Well it's not illegal harassment. In order for it to be illegal harassment, the supervisor would have to be harassing them because of their gender, race, religion, age, etc....

      I forgot to mention that because of this supervisor's false accusations, employees have been given reprimands in their human resource folders. This would seem like grounds for illegal harrassmen to me.

        Maybe, although illegal harrassment means that an actual law such as Title VII is being violated.
        - If the supervisor harrasses a female employee because she is a female employee then we have a possible violatin of the Title VII law which could be reported to the EEOC.
        - If instead the supervisor harresses pretty much everyone because he/she is a jerk, this is not a Title VII violation. It might violate some other law, but might not. It is not specifically against the law to be jerk, even a jerk in a position of authority.
