We live in Ohio.
My husband just came home from work after being fired for "sexual harassment"
The woman who filed the claim had recently been fired and was a well known flirt throughout the store. Several times the store manager had to tell her to "tone it down" with the sexual inuendos. After she and several other woman got fired for stealing she reported that my huband had been making sexual comments to her and that he had touched her behind once.
After interviewing all of her "friends".....the same ones who all got fired with her, they determined that my husband should be fired.
My husband says that he has not made any more comments than anyone else in the store (mostly the woman) and he does not remember ever touching her. He didn't say he didn't do it, but does not remember it. Her report claims his comments and actions were "unwelcome" and her friends stated that they all witnessed it and it made them "uncomfortable".
Earlier in the year, this same woman who filed the claim wanted a dog we were trying to adopt out. She took him home, left him unattended, and he destroyed her couch. She brought the dog back. She never asked to be reimbursed and we didn't offer since we felt she should not have left him unattended.....so this may be a source for her anger with my husband.
Also other assistant managers have previously been accused of sexual harrassment and were only written up. This is the only case of someone being fired.
Are we justified in thinking that this scenerio is a bit wrong? I can understand if he was some jerk walking around the store saying things and grabbing woman, but he is not like that.
It makes me very angry that the woman who started this is accusing my husband of the very same thing she herself has been warned about and yet, she was never written up, and got fired because she was a thief.....not a pervert. Should we do anything, or learn and move on?
