The plaintiff, a manager, was sexually harassed by her supervisor, who made a series of sexually suggestive comments to the plaintiff. When one of the plaintiff's employees came to her and complained of also being subjected to unwanted conduct, the plaintiff came forward and complained to Human Resources. The plaintiff was never informed as to the status of an investigation or whether the supervisor had been reprimanded. Within one week of having made her complaint, the supervisor engaged in actions that were perceived to indicate a physical threat. The plaintiff complained that she was fearful for her safety. The employer took no steps to assure the plaintiff that she would be safe, leaving her with no choice but to resign. Trial Attorneys: Christopher B. Dolan and Rachel Pusey
