Not Promoted Due To Reprisal for a Harassment Complaint I Made in the Past

Eight years ago I filed a sexual harassment complaint against my manager for making unwarranted physical contact with me and it was my word against his. The end result was that he was removed from the office and given the option to retire, being that he was eligible.
