With regards to this post, without the fact of knowing whether or not there was a clear sexual harassment policy in place the community college can also be held liable. Lastly, I do believe that Sally has a case for constructive discharge because of the fact that she quit her job because of a hostile work environment and sexual harassment. She was clearly a victim of sexual harassment by a co- worker. Although Sally was not innocent she was clearly subjected to harassment and a conscious effort made by Jimmy to expose her to bullying, embarrassment, and increased hostility within the community college simply by posting her photos online. This fits the mold of constructive discharge if the work place was made so significantly uncomfortable that Sally was compelled to quit because of these actions. “If an employer makes working conditions so intolerable that the employee has no choice but to quit, then that is the equivalent of a discharge and the employer can be sued” (Anonymous, 2006).

Although she fostered the hostile environment herself; Jimmy took it to another level when he decided to post the nude photos of her in an online forum and tell his friends and the local college pub. I am only assuming for the sake of this post that Sally did have to deal with the ramifications of these

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
