Fired from Church job in Florida for reporting assaults
I think I'm screwed. I started a job at my church and was sexually harassed my another employee. I tried to report it to my supervisor but she wouldn't listen - too busy sharing her own sexual escapades. Then the sexual harasser sexually assaulted me and I finally went to another supervisor to report it. It was escalated, with the harasser being fired for "other reasons". I was told to be careful around campus and be sure that people always knew where I was. Then the supervisor invited the fired employee in to help him with his resume, which scared me and I reported it. I spoke to the lead pastor then about fearing retaliation and then they proceeded to retaliate against me. They asked me to sign a form saying I would do an 100% perfect job for 4 weeks or get fired. I didn't sign, saying I thought I needed an attorney. Then, when getting a copy of my performance evaluation, my supervisor physically attacked me and was arrested, released with a citation that should would appear. I was suspended with pay for 6 days, then fired for "poor performance". I can't collect unemployment from a church job because churches do not have to pay unemployment. She's still working, and they offered me 4 weeks pay if I signed off on all action against them, including battery charges against the supervisor. And almost no lawyer wants to touch it, only the real sharks. I just want what be unemployment benefits until I find other work and for this woman to be fired. I am so screwed it's not even funny.
