I am a 38 year old male. Work as an officer/commercial lender for a bank. Resident of Illinois.
Very long and complicated story short. Since July 2006 I have been the brunt of sexual harrassment matters primarily stemming from two clients (brothers) of mine. At the same time, all incidences have happened in the presence of my supervisor. My supervisor has done nothing to try and stop the commentary. Additionally, in recent months, my supervisor has added to the insult by making lewd/sexual comments regarding my wife. Comments primarily focus on my wife and their desire to see her 'ass'.
Then, a few months ago, I was placed on a written disciplinary warning by my supervisor. Warning alledgely had to do with performance. However, as a kick start to the meeting, my supervisor informed me of an accusation made by the bank's head of Human Resources. The accusation is totally false and has been proven to my boss. However, after repeated verbal and email requests for an apology, my supervisor simply will not ask for the head of H.R. to apologize to me for the slander. It should be noted that the slander campaign occurred at an executive level meeting where I was not present. It is my opinion that the head of HR will not apologize because bank legal counsel has advised her against this. The feeling is that if she were to apologize to me, this would be admitting guilt, and thus would give me more grounds to sue.
I am now at a point where management obviously will not support me. My supervisor continues with the sexually lewd comments involving my wife. As for the HR issue and the slander, that has not changed.
Because I can not afford to be without a job, I plan on accepting an offer with a competitor shortly. However, I am not willing to let this matter die. Any thoughts/comments as to what I can do, and what I should be doing?
