Abbie Fox, a Cheshire County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher, has filed a hostile work environment lawsuit against the department.
Fox claims that her coworkers subjected her to sexual harassment and discrimination, and that her supervisor, then-county sheriff Richard Foote, did not handle her complaints properly.
According to Fox, her coworkers created a hostile work environment for her in retaliation for her complaints.
Several months later, after Fox filed a complaint with the New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights, Foote told her that she should retain an attorney because the Sheriff’s department was going to start an investigation on her.
Fox alleges that Foote subsequently told her that she was the one who was creating a hostile work environment.
