Good afternoon, all. This might sound like an odd question, but I thought I’d throw it out there. Has anyone who’s ever been assaulted/harassed by their immediate manager or supervisor been told to keep quiet regarding the assault/harassment by a department head or director? I experienced sexual assault as well as months of sexual harassment from my immediate, female supervisor and, as a precautionary measure, was reassigned to a new supervisor. I was told by my deputy director (my former supervisor’s boss) to tell people, if they asked, I was reassigned for different reasons rather than why I was really assigned. She literally coached me on how to frame my answer and advised me to steer away from telling people why I was really reassigned. I was taken aback by this. I feel as though my deputy director is protecting the assailant rather than the victim. Any constructive feedback will be greatly appreciated.
