My daughter filed a sexual harassment complaint to her GM and HR after a Supervisor tried to kiss her and picked her up still trying to kiss her and telling her not to tell anyone and that it would be their secret. She ran out of the room immediately. They told her she was a valued employee and they scheduled her shifts at her request to be in his absence. Of course the harasser denied his inappropriate behavior and the company is telling my daughter she will HAVE to work with him even though she has told them it would be uncomfortable. Does she have any recourse?

She has recourse, but will need to address this outside of the internal mechanisms of the employer. Have her contact an attorney ASAP; my office can assist.
