I wasn’t sure if this was best fit for here, on law.se or highereducation.se but since it primarily happened at work, I decided here.
I just graduated from university. I completed the co-op program. I had one co-op placement where there was extreme bullying and the environment was very toxic.
I reported this to the co-op department. They white washed the situation and said things such as “if it was so bad why didn’t you quit?” In fact they told me if I complained it would be violating my NDA.
Yesterday I met with a co-op coordinator to say goodbye. He mentioned that another co-op student had filed a law suit against someone at the same office due to bullying. I would like to support this and make known my experience. The co-op coordinator said he wasn’t really supposed to talk about it, so any suggestions on how to proceed? I would like to contact the other student who may be filing the law suit but don't know how?
As an aside I had to see a psychologist and I have a note written from her that the workplace was very negative. But I prefer not to tell people I saw a psychologist.
Also the way the bullying was done was very hard to catch or keep a record of.
