My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Alabama
I had sent some texts to a fellow employee involving sexual comments. I stopped of my own accord despite her never asking me to stop about 1 month ago because I caught a conscience. I even sent a text about 2 months ago that asked the question, are these texts bothersome or offending you. She said no with a smiley face. The worst text I can think of was one inviting her to have an affair. She never said stop or that she was offended, and in fact would make a comment on her own every now and then. Of course I did not save any of these texts. She saved mine, the incriminating ones.
Last week she went to the boss and showed him some texts I sent. He apologized profusely, called me and told me to stop even though I already had on my own, and the next work day, I went to her and apologized profusely. I garanteed that there would never be anything off the straight and narrow from me ever again with anyone, not just her. No jokes, anything. I realize I can no longer tolerate any conduct even if in joke with any other employees. I begged her forgiveness and assured her no animosity or work place discrimination would ever occur.
Her husband wants her to file a claim, even though she initially said she was "ok" with how it was handled, and now he wants her to quit, so she put in her 2 wk notice.
Help please? Can I ask for transcripts of all texts to me from my cell company to help my case as I deleted them?
