Thank you. You've all really helped make this situation bearable over the last couple of days.

To answer the question posed. My girlfriend is 11 weeks today so we don't know what we're having yet. We got our names picked out though, so we're not even sure we're going to find out when we can. We might let it be a surprise.

When she returns to work, she is likely to either escalate, find another target, or stop her inappropriate behavior (highly unlikely). Make sure you keep your guard up as long as she works there. Do not be alone with her, or have any interaction with her or say anything to her that is not work-related. Do not respond to anything she says in the future that is inappropriate except informing her that you will be letting NM/HR know about her comments, and document her comments and any witnesses for NM/HR. You should check with a lawyer about her presenting a hostile work environment and whether you could pursue legal action if the company drops the ball on this one. If you cannot claim harassment due to age, race, etc. then a hostile work environment claim may not provide any protection.

Jay, you know we are all really nosy here so give us an update. Pretty please. I'm glad you had the meeting. Sometimes you have to let it all out and I think you did a great job.

:smiley_ab Well said. I am glad the OP is not letting this weasel get away with this stuff.

I would just like everyone to know it's a very nice feeling to go to work and know I don't have to deal with this woman on my shift anymore. I don't know (nor do I care) if she's back from suspension but there hasn't been anything carrying over from other shifts so for right now I'm safe and it's comforting.

Glad to hear that thing's are looking up for you. Hopefully this person will stay beyond your reach. Good thing that you spoke up for yourself and that they listened to you. Now you can concentrate on your job.:wink2:

I just hope that she's not targeting other men on the shift she's been put on. :uhoh21:

Wow.

Congrats on taking the high (professional) road on this one. I'm so happy to see that things are working out for you.

As others have said, keep us posted.:up:

I took PTO this week due to the end of the semester but since everyone here was so very helpful with this situation while I was going through it, I figured I had to let you all know that I just got a phone call from a coworker, and she was more than pleased to inform me that Nurse Nasty was fired on the spot this evening for reasons that are being kept hush hush at the moment. I'm sure it won't stay that way and the reasoning behind her firing will be revealed. But can I say that it is an extremely relieve not to have to worry about this woman at all anymore!

On a side note my pregnant girlfriend will hopefully become my pregnant fiancee this weekend, sshhh don't tell her that.

Again thank you all so much for being understand ears during all that mess.

Good to hear she got canned.

Might I ask what area exactly you are in? If you are near me I want to be prepared for any new arrivals.
