Pls. give me your opinion and legal advice regarding the SEXUAL HARASSMENT filed against my male friend by his female co- workers/ employees.
My friend holds a position as Store Supervisor in a supermarket while the complainant is his subordinates. She filed a written complaint at the HR dept. and this case is subject for DISMISSAL from work if found guilty.
Atty. can any person file a complaint/ case even without a proof to support her allegations? Does grudge from their previous encounter prior to filling of this complaint can be use to counter the complaint? What if the "victim" has a questionable personality or image like"malandi"? Will it gives demerit to the complainant's case?
LASTLY, IF found guilty, is their any legal remedies asides from dismissal from work? How about monetary consideration or settlement?
Atty., I hope you can enlighten me on this case as soonest possible.
Thank you & more power!
