“I just want to say that I’m very grateful to E.J.C. for all of the advice and the support they’ve given me.” -Carolina
When the owner of the company she worked at started to sexually harass her, Carolina tried to protect herself by telling her coworkers, but nobody had the power to stop him. When the owner found out that she had informed his wife, Carolina was terminated without notice. In addition, her unemployment claim was denied because her employer had misclassified her as a subcontractor.
Carolina came to the EJC seeking both her unemployment benefits and to take action against her former employer. Through mediation that the EJC helped her prepare for, she has received unemployment benefits. She is currently seeking compensation for wrongful termination and sexual harassment.
