Does my employer have to tell me if s/he is applying for an order for protection against harassment in the workplace based on me being harassed?
Most likely, yes. If an employer knows that you, specifically, have been the target of harassment in the workplace and the employer wants to apply for an order for protection due to this harassment, the employer must try to notify you before seeking an order for protection. However, if the employer is unable to reach you before s/he goes to court, it is possible that the judge will allow him/her to get the order anyway as long as the employer can prove s/he made a “good faith effort” to notify you.1
