Q. Harassment charges against my boss

I was teaching and doing translation work for an organisation. In April, 2018 I was told that I would only be paid half the amount due for a document which I had translated from English to French. Since I was sure that this decision was not justified, I resigned from the translation service in protest and subsequently from my teaching position in the month of June 2018 since the same person was in charge of both teaching and translation and it would have been impossible to work under her. In my resignation letter, I accused my boss of harassment due to a series of contentious decisions by her previous to this decision. The Director of the organisation did not accept my resignation but I did not return there. In November 2018 the issue of the breach of contract in the translation of the document was resolved in my favour and my boss was ordered to pay me the balance of the amount due for the translated document. However, it would not be possible for me to work with this person anymore.
I took up the matter with the Executive Committee of the Organization to press harassment charges against her but last week it said that it did not want to interfere in the personal conflict of the two parties.
I expressed my disagreement since I felt that this was a clear case of harassment.
Would it be possible to take legal action against my boss ?

A. Dear madam,
You have the right to lodge the complaint for any irregularity which is not a part of your contract.
You can drag them to the Court of Law till they finally settle your claim which id legal and genuine.

A. Well, legally yes.
But then, in my honest opinion, If you have already received the due amount and do not want to return there. Then it is not a good idea to press the matter more. Had it been a case where you had to work there under such circumstances then things would've taken a different course.
But given your express disagreement to not work there anymore. Just get your dues which you are legally entitled to.

Hope this helped
