The place I worked at that has treated me like shit since I reported being sexually assaulted by a co-worker?
The name is Earl’s. Earl’s Restaurant in Downtown Denver.
Here’s a link to their FB page.
This is the business that claimed they would launch an investigation, but hasn’t.
This is a business that encourages their employees to lie to the detective working on my case.
This is the business that warned my rapist that I was going to file a claim.
This is the business that threatened to fire me because it was against “partner values” to “attack someone’s character.”
This is a business who has a managing partner that said to me, “Well, I heard you really LIKED it and I believe this person over you.”
This is the business that has an female HR rep say things like, “Well, let’s remember that this is still just an ALLEGED incident.”
This is a business that, despite my repetitive disclose of a disability refuses to follow ADA law and allow me accommodations.
This is a business that told me if a co-worker triggers or harasses me and my PTSD is affected, I WOULD BE FIRED (I have a letter from them stating this.)
This is a business where male managers openly discuss intimate sexual acts about female coworkers based on rumor i.e. “Yeah apparently when he raped her he licked her butt and that was the first time someone had done that to her and she really liked it.”
This is a business that promotes its employees as “Earl’s Girls” and brags about only hiring the most attractive women.
This is a business that openly discriminates against its male servers.
This is a business that has made me so fucking depressed, I can’t work, I have no money, I’m in counseling, and I’m trying everything in my power to just fucking keep myself together. I have been punished and harassed for doing the right thing and reporting a crime that happened to me— and they haven’t even attempted to do their own investigation as they claimed they would, according to the employee handbook.
EARL’S RESTAURANTS SUPPORT RAPISTS AND PERPETUATE RAPE CULTURE!!!!!
Please, signal boost. They can’t get away with treating someone this way. Don’t let them. Remind them that people know what they’ve done and it’s wrong. Yelp it, FB it, boycott their locations (a lot in Canada) write letters to HR (read: according to them, all complaints go directly to the President of the company.)
I refuse to be quiet about this any longer.
SIGNAL BOOST THIS! I’ve been following mama-cats story for a while now and this company makes me sick with what they have done to this woman.
