Sexual harassment is a very serious workplace issue and should be dealt with before major problems occur. It is essential to understand the underlying causes of sexual harassment claims and have a clear policy posted in all workplaces.
Denver Sheriff’s Captain believes she’s being retaliated against for filing a sexual harassment complaint against a coworker.
The Denver Police Department is investigating the “Denver Sheriff’s Foundation,” a nonprofit organization headed by Denver Sheriff’s Captain Cheryl Arabalo for the possible misuse of funds.
Arabalo says the timing of the investigation is suspicious because she is about to return to work after being suspended for 70 days without pay, the longest suspension in the department’s history.
Arabalo said “I don’t know why suddenly, months later, there’s an investigation, but I do believe it probably stems from this person out of retaliation for raising the sexual harassment claims against him. In an email I sent to the State Investigator, I said I was afraid to do it because I knew I might suffer retaliation.”
Protect your company from false claims by keeping all management level employees trained and updated on all changes in employment law.
