Did I Create A Hostile Work Environment?

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about charge of harassment: About 6 weeks ago, she wrote a letter to the plant manager stating I have been harassing her, calling her certain derogatory names.

Over two years ago I dated a female co-worker for a period of 3 months. It ended briefly, and I haven’t had much contact with her since we work rotating shifts and rarely together. About 6 weeks ago, she wrote a letter to the plant manager stating I have been harassing her, calling her certain derogatory names. She listed a number of employees who allegedly heard me say these things. Upon hearing this, I started asking some of the people on the list if they have heard me say these things, all but one said absolutely not. The one who spoke against me told me I said, “The reason the co-worker and I broke up is because her roommate told me she had been sleeping around.” This is true, I did make that statement, but never once made any comments to her or to anyone that were demeaning or in any way false.
