    I was working with a large company and relations with manager were professional. Then I was invited to an after office dinner with a VP from another group in which this VP talked nothing but about sex. After the dinner I told them that I can’t be involved in such discussions and then retaliation by my manager started within 2-3 weeks after this dinner.

    I believe that I was retaliated because I refused to go along in sexual talk, jokes … by a VP.

    I was treated very badly for year and half, complained to HR, as well as office of associate relations but they didn’t do anything, it was a sham.

    I resigned from the company in Mar, 2017. I am in NJ, I want to know if statute of limitation for filing sexual harassment case is not over in NJ as I understand it’s flexible in NJ and can be extended beyond 18months. Also looking for some lawyer’s reference for handling such cases.

    The fact that you resigned is likely a bigger problem than any statute of limitations.

    There are many ways for a person to locate a lawyer, most of those ways are the same way one might find a pizza joint.
