I would very much like to know what has become of the female CJIA worker’s report of sexual harassment and retaliation and the response of the authorities?
Not only because of the implications for other female workers in our society, but for the fact that it is entirely wrong for those in a position of authority to prey on the vulnerable by dangling their promotion or future employment security with the entity if they do not comply. Wherever this cancer exists it should be rooted out and a clear message sent to the perpetrators that once the complaint is verified, a pound of flesh will be demanded. It is also absolutely imperative that the authorities vested with the responsibility of investigating these complaints do so expeditiously and thoroughly, thus assuring those employees making the allegation of sexual harassment in the workplace the confidence that a fair and impartial investigation will be carried out. This approach will also embolden those suffering in silence to come forward. And finally, those who for whatever reason concocted false allegations, may very well have second thoughts as they may fear being found out. Again, I may have missed the conclusion of this despicable episode in this female employee’s working experience but I am curious to know what has become of her complaint.
