(Rolling Out) — Former BET employee Tameika Dorman sued the TV station, claiming that she was fired after she complained to management about gross sexual harassment from a cameraman. Allegedly, the cameraman repeatedly took live shots of her buttocks and, when she notified upper management, she was assigned to film Nicki Minaj with the same cameraman anyway. According to her suit, it was there that the cameraman began to masturbate in front of her. A few months later, she was terminated. That raises the question of what to do if you are being sexually harassed on the job.
1. First, if your supervisor or co-workers make sexual comments or comments that are obviously based on your race, gender or other protected characteristic, write down exactly what was said after work or during a work break. Make sure to include the date and time of the incident and the names of any witnesses who saw what happened.
