16-year-old girl says she was was touched by older male co-worker against her will
The father of a 16-year-old girl who reported being sexually harassed by an older male co-worker at a Superstore wants the grocery chain to take stronger action against the man involved.
"It just seems wrong that the victim pays the highest price, and the guy that did it is back at work," said Alain-Pierre Hovasse.
His daughter, Genny Hovasse, went to work stocking shelves at a Superstore in east Vancouver this summer. It was her first job. She said she quit after just three weeks, because a male co-worker in his 40s kissed, hugged and caressed her repeatedly while on the job, against her will.
