    I was harassed at one facility by the medical director. I was told by my administrator they couldn't do anything because medical directors are too hard to find.
    Finally I told the doctor if he didn't stop telling me vulgar jokes and comments about body parts, I would have to have my son come 'take care of him'. The harassment stopped immediately.
    I didn't tell him my son was 10 years old.
    I didn't stay there much longer after that....the company disrespected the elders in their building as well as the staff.

    I am not sure of anyone's sexual orientation in this situation but if you are heterosexual and the offender is homosexual and goes the "minority-victim route", it could get dicey in this very PC age that we live in. I have been in a work situation where the most outrageous things were allowed to occur (no, not sexual harassment although there were other illegalities occurring) because some of us were fearful that it would not go well for us and we would look racist rather than simply wanting to have an appropriate, professional work environment and not just for ourselves but also due to the line of work we were in, we needed to model appropriate workplace behavior for our clients.

    Thank God the situation above where the Unit Secretary filed a counter-suite based on her sexual-orientation but HR saw the real story and the issues were really her poor attitude, out of line behavior and lack of common sense, was resolved correctly.

    Good luck!! I hope that you experience true justice.
