What can I do regarding a battery by my co-workers?
Question Details: About 8 years ago, I was 16 working and at a telemarking service. I got attacked by 2 older females for no reason outside of the establishment, although there was supposed to be security outside at the end of our shift. After the altercation, my family called the police and pressed charges on the women. My grandmother and I met with the company Human Resources people and they offered me my job back. I went back for about 3 months but the teasing from other employees became too much. I am now 24. I still see the women who attacked me and also other employees from the company still talk about it. What legal actions can I take now? I am still traumatized from the situation and I still run into these girls.I feel that the company has not done enough.
You can't take any action against the company.
1) The company is not the police and is not your legal guardian: it had no legal obligaion whatsoever to protect you from a criminal attack by other employees or teasing/harassment after the fact due to the attack. An employer employees you, nothing more; it has no other obligations to you.
2) The statute of limitations, or time within which a legal action must filed, for personal injury or growing out of physical assault is only 2 years in your state, so you are years past the statutory period. Once the statutory period has expired, you cannot bring legal action.
