At work yesterday, a co-worker told me she didn’t like that I dismissed her suggestion on a project I’m working on. I told her to go whine to Oprah.
Today, I get called into the manager’s office and sitting in there is the equal opportunity representative. My co-worker has filed a complaint that I am sexist.
I told them that my reply to her may have not been the most tactful response, however, when swamped with work, who is pc 100% of the time. Sexist though?[/quote]
First off, if you are not her boss, or in her chain of command, then there can be no EEO complaint. That EEO rep can go pound sand.
Sexual harassment is another thing. Whether or not your manager thinks your comments were justified or not is regardless. This woman feels you harassed her, the complaint was made and management is required to bring it to your attention.
I have a lot of experience in Labor Management Relations (LMR) so take some advice. You have been put on notice. Take notes of questionable comments this woman makes, whether it’s to you or to another co-worker. Dates and times are the best defense/offense.
With the PC world we live in today, you had better watch your ass.
