Man claims sexual harassment from female officer caused him to lose job
A Galveston man has claimed that he was the victim of sexual harassment from a female corrections officer.
According to the lawsuit that was filed in a Galveston County court earlier this month, the man stated that the female officer subjected him to unwanted sexual advances from May 2011 to October 2011.
The suit stated that the man lost his job because he showed “resistance to the misconduct.” The lawsuit names 11 incidents where the officer allegedly tried to seduce the man. The lawsuit states that many of the sexual advances occurred in public or in front of other co-workers.
He also stated that he was retaliated against because he denied the advances. The man tried to collect evidence of the harassment by using a recording device and shortly after this, he was told that he was suspended until later notice. This complaint led to his resignation in November 2011.
