      **Have any of you ever been harassed sexually on the job? I was once back when I was a barmaid. I was 21 and working in a neighborhood bar..It was a small place nothing to get excited over..LOL..There were 4 other girls there working with me..They had told me that he was trying to force them to sit on his lap or kiss him in order to receive their pay checks..I was Like Uhh I Don't Be Thinking So..Well on my first 2 pay days he did not try anything with me..But..The 3rd time, he said oh there in my office come on and I'll get it for you..So I followed him. Once inside he shut the door and started his lil game..I was like "Hay I am doing nothing for you or to you in order to get my check..Give me my check..He just press on trying all different approaches..I opened the door and said F*U..I went home and called the police they told me who to call...so I did. I made an appointment and had a meeting with a woman..She said I could press charges and get him for sexual harassment..Then she asked me if I could prove it..Anyone see this happen?..Well no..Then she said it's your word against his..I was so PO..She then told me he had 8 other woman come in with the same complaint..None of them went through with it..Because she told me..They would get me up there and his lawyer would make me out to be a tramp..I got madder..She asked what do you wear to work..Well the uniform was a very short blue jean skirt hills and a tight t-shirt..She raised one eyebrow I had an image of how that would go..Not well..I called him and asked for my check..He said I don't know you, you never worked here, I blew up..I called her back and she said the only thing she could find to weigh this in my favor was he had a bunch of tax issues and was going to be charged with tax evasion..Having her call him and laying it out to him..I got my check..I quit my job..And you guessed it..He never missed a days' work or a night's sleep..He just made a deal with the IRS for payments...Something's just suck...
