Kmart Pharmacy / retaliation firing after discrimination complaint

1 United States

I worked for KMart pharmacy in Santa Fe, New Mexico from 1996 to 1998. I was harrassed on the job. I reported this harrassment and was punished by being written up for things I had done wrong. I did not feel the problem was resolved so I went to New Mexico human services to report this. Two days later I was fired for "other reasons".
During this 2 year periodthat I worked there, I was sexually harrassed by a pharmacist, Joe Simmons. I went to the manager of the store, John Weisinger. He told me to grow up and told both me and the pharmacist to report and wrongdoing about the other. By going to human services, I was able to file a lawsuit against K-Mart for discrimination based on my sex, but I ran out of money for my lawyer. I realize this was a long time ago, but they got away with it. I since have heard that the pharmacist Joe Simmons went on to do this to other girls.
