I had worked as a secretary in a large accounting firm for about 10 years. A new boss came in and he started telling a few of the secretaries that he liked the way we dressed. He started leaving unsigned notes on my desk, but I knew who they were from. I spoke to him about leaving me alone, but he wouldn’t. He kept asking me for a date and I kept telling him no. Later, when everyone else got a raise, I did not.

I had to leave because he was after me almost every day. Before I left, I met with Mr. Trubman. He approached the firm confidentially and they offered a decent settlement, which I took.
