A co-worker in a California government office has been accused of sexual harassment. He gets Victoria Secret magazines in the mail which he does not want. He was giving them to a female co-worker who wanted them. One day she was not there and he offered them to another woman in the office. She filed a claim of sexual harassment. Now he cannot leave his office pending an investigation.
This is the most outrageous abuse of sexual harassment law. It trivialized victims who really are being abused at work, creates a hostile work environment for the men in the office and is probably illegal as well. I am so sick of this idiocy I think men should start fighting back. There's no reason we should have to take this crap.
1. Is it legal for them to make him stay in his office until they investigate?
2. If they fire or punish him over this can he sue?
