I don’t know how I feel about returning to Cincinnati. In no way am I afraid to face this bogus charge that the Ohio Civil Rights Commission (OCRC) hung around my neck like an albatross. I’m ready to do battle. Someone on this blog suggested that I file an injunction against the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as well as file one against the Ohio Civil Rights Commission. Looking back, I wish I would have blogged this information years ago. It’s funny how much you could learn from total strangers.
Speaking of strangers, even some of my childhood friends feel like strangers to me. This is as a result of my self-isolation. I was so ashamed of losing what I thought was a legitimate lawsuit against my former employer, the Ohio BWC that I couldn’t see straight. Enduring the same workplace violations at my supplemental job humiliated me more. But in between all of this, I endured sabotage of all of my potential and actual romantic relationships.
Imagine your employer setting you up with romantic encounters and/or romantic prospects then telling those same prospects to treat you badly. That’s called interfering with your life. Imagine you already have a boyfriend, and your employer pays him to propose to you just so you might quit your job and move out of state. Welcome to my hell.
If you’ve filed sexual harassment and hostile work environment charges, and your romantic relationships sink to the floor, beware of your employer. It is much easier for your employer to pay off romantic interests to make you look bad than to pay you millions for creating a hostile work environment. True story. But I’ll tell you more in my book Tracey Lampley Surviving the EEOC.
By the way, I’m in town to turn myself in. Tomorrow I’ll show up at the justice center , turn myself in to the police for that bogus aggravated menacing charge and see what happens. Until tomorrow . . .
