Sexual Harassment


   Here are several events that happen in the workplace. Do you believe they   fall under the definition of sexual harassment? If so, why? If not, why not?

  • Jane willingly dated a        co-worker for the last 3 years. Now, she has met someone else and does        not want to continue the relationship with the co-worker. The co-worker        does not want to end the relationship and is posting negative things        about her on Facebook. 
  • Linda offers sexual favors to        her professor in order to get a passing grade. The professor agrees, and        Linda receives a passing grade. 
  • Mary, a supervisor, asks her        male employee, Stan, to join her for dinner so they have will some quiet        time away from the office to go over his performance evaluation.
  • Bob, a supervisor, makes        comments about on a regular basis to his secretary, Susan, about how she        is dressed for the day.
  • A customer in a restaurant        grabs the rear end of a waitress. She complains about the customer to        the manager, who says, “Ignore it, you’ll probably get  bigger        tip.”
  • Don posts pictures of        scantily clothed women on his office walls.

   Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims   with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and   properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’   posts by Day 7.
