Do you think someone should get fired after they lied on someone for sexually harassing them when they didn't?

Superb Opinion

  • Yeah. If I ran a business any sexual harassment charges would result in a cessation of payment for the accuser and accused. After a detailed investigation is undertaken the one who was discovered to be telling the truth will get all the money they would have accrued in the time that the investigation took place. They would also get all the money the guilty party would have accrued. The guilty party would be immediately fired with no recommendations whatsoever. If the non guilty party wished to leave after the investigation, or did leave during the investigation the investigation would continue until the truth is discovered and payment would still be provided to them. To facilitate this I would have an investigation team on retainer to complete an adequate investigation in a timely manner. My views on deterring sexual harassment and assault is to make the penalties so stiff nobody will think of it. I also fully hold to the "innocent until proven guilty" doctrine, I don't believe the accuser blindly. I will investigate every accusation, but if it's a false accusation you should be punished for such and not getting any money and not having a job or references is what I'd do to the one accused if it's valid.

  • One of my biggest pet peeves in this world is somebody that lies he tries to get mad at somebody else in trouble because we can't either admit they were wrong or they did something wrong because the person that lies is usually the one it doesn't get in trouble in the beginning but the truth always comes out and sexual harassment is you can fuck somebody like that really really bad if it's not true but anybody that lies that they should be fired because then you lose that trust in that Bond and that's wrong

  • YES! Unless both sides agree that it could be a misunderstanding. If it ends up being attention seeking, a way to cover up something else, or animosity, then the liar should be let go immediately.

  • If this was categorically proven beyond all reasonable doubt, then absolutely right the individual should be instantly dismissed/sacked/fired.

  • Yes they should. There is no excuse for crying wolf about such a serious issue. The fact that a person would do so also in a major red flag in general and a sign that such a person should be outright avoided by everyone. Simply because it raises the question: If they are willing to lie about that, what else are they willing to do?

  • Considering society's general hypocrisy... you've technically committed both a civil $$$ Libel/Slander and criminally prosecutable 'False Reports'! You have SIGNIFICANTLY impacted that person's career earnings potential!
    Actual 'jail time' is a REAL possibility!

  • fuck yes

  • Yes, however it needs to be proven that they lied and not that there was not enough proof to prove the sexual harassment,

    it’s a bit like rapists getting off on a technicality or having a better lawyer, it does not mean the fucker is innocent and likely everyone in the court room knows they are guilty, just not enough proof.

    i have had situations where we know the person was harassing the other but did not have enough to go on other than person complaining and the other person.

  • Yes, as long as it has been proven they did lie.

  • If it was for a fact a false claim not a claim lacking evidence then yes

  • Yup, also give them prison and maybe death penalty while at it. Though the government would need to start giving that to actual sexual assaulters first.

  • Figured is the least they can can do

  • Yeap

  • yes, lying is not right, and being vindictive is even worse, not the type of person I would like to have working for me.
    It would be out the door with their severance cheque in hand.

  • If it was someone within the company and they took it to HR then yes.

  • False accusations should be dealt with as harshly as the crimes they attempt to burden the victim with.

  • They should suffer the same consequences of the falsified act they alleged.
    More so if that other person lost their job. I'd sue.

  • Absolutely 💯

  • Absolutely. That's a serious accusation which is prosecutable

  • Yes, either fired or given a stearn warning.

  • Yes, but it is hard to prove a negative. If a accuses b of harassment, perhaps the matter will be dropped if they don't have proof in the form of witnesses or emails and such. But how do you prove they DIDN'T?

  • Fired and a lawsuit for defamation of character

  • Yes ofc.

  • Fuck yessssssssssss !!! For real.
    God Bless
