Job title redacted
In October 2016, the UCR Title IX Office initiated an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment and creation of a hostile work environment. The complainant alleged that the respondent called her names such as “boo” and “baby girl,” and grabbed her hand unwarranted while at work, according to the report. The complainant also said she had lost her phone at work, and when she told the respondent, he allegedly asked for a hug and her phone number in return for her phone. As a result, the complainant said she felt uncomfortable going to the stockroom. The respondent said he did not know the complainant outside of the workplace and did not remember any of the incidents. He also denied grabbing the complainant’s hand and calling her “boo."
