Chapter 09 - Sexual Harassment 5. (p. 404) John is an openly gay man. During the course of the work day, he teased his co- worker, Paul, telling him that he should go ahead and "come out of the closet," asking him out and telling him that he was so hot. Paul does not have a claim for sexual harassment because John is not his supervisor and because John is a man. FALSE Difficulty: 2 Medium 6. (p. 406) Doug occasionally compliments his secretary when he arrives at the office, saying things like, "Mrs. Woods, you look nice today" or "That's a nice dress." Mrs. Woods would not have a claim for sexual harassment. TRUE Difficulty: 3 Hard 7. (p. 406) Sandra dated Henry, her supervisor, for 3 months. She told him that she didn't want to see him anymore and couldn't they just be friends. Henry became obsessed with Sandra, calling her at her desk, emailing her at work, and dropping by her house. Sandra cannot file a claim with EEOC for sexual harassment because she had been in a voluntary consensual relationship with him. FALSE Difficulty: 3 Hard 8.

Chapter 09 - Sexual Harassment 10. (p. 413) Employers are not liable for sexual harassment if the harassing activity takes place outside the workplace. FALSE Difficulty: 2 Medium 11. (p. 406-407) Rosalind has been approached a number of times, for dates, by her male coworkers. On one occasion she accepted, and the date became rather intimate. The next day, she rebuffed any further advances by her date from the previous night. On subsequent days, however, she was sometimes receptive to his advances and, at other times, she indicated either ambivalence or disinterest. If Rosalind attempts to make a claim of sexual harassment on the basis of this pattern, the chief flaw in her claim will be that she was sending mixed signals to her suitor and that it was impossible for him to determine whether his advances were unwelcome.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
