Lawyers .... What should a responsible company do when given a harassment complaint?
Lawyer or not, please give a serious answer. All are appreciated. please no games. I filed a complaint with the hotel's general manager about a co worker , who is a manager, who took a security video of me and zoomed at my rear end. I had a minor outfit mishap when I bent to grab a log book over the counter at the reception area. I complained about 6 weeks ago. The 4th of December, the general manager and the corporate company's Vice president of human resources came. I made my complaint and I was told that an investigation would take place... and that results would be given to me within a week.... 3 weeks and 2 days later... we met again and he says that the person denies doing this and that no one substantiated my allegation... I said that I had a picture of the computer screen showing what this manager was showing my co workers... he said, HEY GUYS COME SEE SOMETHING FUNNY........... with me there, to my amazement it was me on Camera! I mentioned today that I would go to the Labor Department and file a formal complaint. Is this the right action to take or should I go to an employment law lawyer? I am male, 35 years old and I reside in New York City. Thank you for all your advice and happy holidays.
