I would like to offer my gratitude at your prompt response to my letter/inquiry about the conclusion of the complaint made by the female CJIA employee against an official of the airport about alleged sexual harassment, which she endured at his behest and the discriminatory practices she reportedly endured after refusing to comply with his wishes, particularly after going public.
My interest in this matter is twofold, not only is it reprehensible, sick and demeaning for those in a position of power and authority to demand sexual favours from the vulnerable, but as a former (now retired) employee of the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, Department of Labor (DOL), one of my duties at the EEOC Department (Equal Employment Opportunity Counselor) was to thoroughly investigate complaints made by DOL employees involving workplace discrimination and sexual harassment.
My primary function at the Bureau was statistics, but when approached to take on this additional responsibility, I jumped at the opportunity, as this workplace practice is so widespread and traumatic to the victimised, and frankly, it makes me sick to the stomach. It was from this background that I took a very keen interest in the conclusion of this female’s complaint at the CJIA.
I/we obviously cannot say with any degree of accuracy or certainty why this young woman would refuse to provide details of her alleged harassment to the relevant authorities after her very public revelations of same.
To me, this is so very disappointing and troubling that she would do so, and her obvious oblivion of the ramifications of her sudden brain freeze not only to her credibility, but to the untold numbers of other females and males, the latter being less vulnerable to this workplace scourge, suffering in silence only to keep bread on the table and a shelter above their heads.
This female, aware of it or not, has done irreparable harm to these workers. My hope is, she can look herself in the mirror and be proud of the image looking back at her. The police/authorities should be able to go after this practice of refusing to give evidence once a complaint is made, criminal or else. Those indulging in this should know there is a price to pay.
