    Since there are less than 15 employees, the EEOC would not be able to assist. She could still try and file assault charges but that would be a civil remedy.

    I'd suggest your sister speak with a guidance counselor or minister about what happened if she needs some support. If nothing else, she needs to have the tools to deal with something like this should it happen in the future. I'd be concerned that she didn't tell someone immediately or take steps to prevent it from happening (such as switching stables, quitting the job, telling someone, telling this guy to knock it off).

    ummm...

    as far as i was concerned only about four full time with maybe 5 others helping out on the side.
    nothing was ever very organized and hours were always different... she worke not to get money but to board her horse there, she was taken advantage of while working, this is why shes not there anymore...

    Then no charges of assaulting a minor will apply. At 18, she doesn't need anybody's permission, consent, knowledge, or approval to sign a contract.

    I don't disagree; I'm just concerned about the ten-month delay. She's running perilously close to the deadline for filing with the EEOC, and to file a civil suit at all, she needs a right to sue letter from them.

    Justin, your sister needs to file a sexual harassment suit with the EEOC NOW. Depending on exactly when it happened, it may already be too late. She can also talk to the cops and see if there's anything they can do this long after the fact.

    If he grabbed her butt it is a criminal assault. Maybe the cops could help. If nothing else, they could investigate the assault and help her to prove her civil claims against them.

    He said that she signed a contract without her parents permission and that the man hired lots of young girls so I take that to mean that his sister is a minor.

    Where does the poster say his sister is a minor?

    I think what turbo was saying was to file a charge with the police for sexual abuse of a minor. I dont think there is a limitation on that as my son just took a report from two sisters for something that happened eleven years ago and it is being prosecuted.

    The police do not deal in sexual harassment charges. They might deal in assault charges, but 10 months after the fact it would be next to impossible for them to do anything.

    The employee must file a complaint with the EEOC within 300 days of the alleged incident. We're cutting it close here.

    What about sexual harrasment charges with the police? They may take into account the age, and embarrasment, is their a statute of limitations on charges with the police?
