The New York Police Department will pay a female officer $110,000 to settle charges a superior officer harassed her and then retaliated when she refused his advances.

According to the officer’s complaint, an NYPD lieutenant often massaged her shoulders and made inappropriate comments about her personal life.

He consistently bragged about his connections within the department and his position as president of Shomrin, an association of Jewish police officers.

He invited the woman to parties and on one occasion drove her to his house and announced that his wife was not home. He also criticized her husband, once saying, “I can’t believe you married an Italian guy. He couldn’t at least be Jewish like me?”

She claimed he referred her to a psychiatrist and for alcohol treatment in retaliation.

Note: Employers must always provide employees with two avenues to report harassment so a harassing boss cannot derail an impartial investigation into what happened.
