A New Jersey superintendent for a school district currently faces two employee harassment claims. Employee harassment and discrimination can take many forms, such as sexual harassment and verbal abuse. Employees subjected to harassing conditions while at the workplace may have a cause of action against his or her employer.
When an employee experiences sexual harassment at the workplace, the situation often involves other unlawful actions by an employer. Sexual harassment is a serious allegation and employees who have endured sexual harassment and other related workplace violations have the right to challenge the behavior. Three New Jersey employees have recently filed a lawsuit against their employer claiming each of the employees were sexually harassed and also endured discrimination.
Workplace harassment and discrimination can happen to any employee, regardless of stereotypes or social biases. Sexual harassment is a common type of harassment that occurs in the workplace and is generally associated with female employees as the victim. A federal lawsuit has been filed in New Jersey, which claims a male teacher was the victim of sexual harassment at the workplace.
According to the Jersey Journal, North Bergen Mayor Nicholas Sacco recently filed 36 boxes of nominating petitions for the upcoming mayoral election in May. Only 300 petitions per candidate are required, but Sacco said he hoped to break a record as well as weigh support for the election.
