A New York narcotics officer is suing her employer for allowing a toxic work environment to grow, despite her filing multiple complaints of sexual harassment against her boss and co-workers.
According to the NY Post, Sharon Balli, the first female Indian-Guyanese to reach the rank of captain, filed her claim with the Comptroller’s Office and is seeking $5 million in damages from the alleged advances.
Balli, a retired Army major, claims her fellow captain constantly asked her about her sex life, tried to peer at her in a shared executive bathroom while she was in the shower, and tried to catch her in the middle of changing with a spare key to her private office.
She also says other co-workers would lob lewd comments at her.
Balli, says she filled multiple complaints within her office and was told to, “stand down and shut the f–k down.”
She says Internal Affairs is now investigating her after she set up a camera in her office to catch the accused captain of entering her office while she was out on vacation. That captain found the camera and reported it to IA. Captain Balli has not been able to recover the video that was recorded while she was away.
