    sexual harassment

    Advertisements
    A woman I know is the only woman who works for a company I will call W's and she was on a job with two other workers, when one pulled out his penis and said "you know you want some" and this made her feel very uneasy. She brought it up to the boss, then talked to her lawyer who said she had a sexual harassment case, and she is now attempting to settle out of court.

    Here is where the debate comes in....
    A few men at the company believe that she knew that she would be the only woman working and should have expected some amount of harassment.

    IMO that BS I would have jacked him in his exposed parts if I would have been her.

    the man in question is suspended until further notice without pay, and she said that she will drop the case if he is fired.

    Do you all think that she over reacted?

    Whoa!! Some amount of harassment would be telling her she has a nice rack.
    Pulling out genitalia is outrageous and she definitely has a fair case.

    No, I don't think she over reacted at all. Sure, 'expect' some 'harassment' being the only woman. If you put up with ANYTHING, I'd be drawing the line at "hey pretty lady, you've sure got a nice ass!".

    Whipping out your wang just ain't it. I hope she wins.

    Absolutely not. Even the male co-workers could be described as being victims if they believe that act was hostile and offensive to their work. This was absolutely blatant and quite sad in this day and age.

    Heck no she's no over reacting! That's ridiculous! He's an idiot! Would he pull his penis out and say that to another man!? (If it were all men working the project at the time, I mean) I doubt it!

    Holy crap, he literally yoinked out the willy in public? How many people were areound?

    WTH??

    I can't even believe someone would ...be dumb enough to do that

    Your genitalia needs to stay hidden on the job unless you are a prostitute, exotic dancer, or nude model. Or any other nude job I didn't name.

    She did not overreact, and you can tell the men at the company that their sentiment is sweet (*gag*), but the law doesn't agree with them so they may want to watch their mouths if they'd like to continue to work for that company. If they give you any guff about that, you can suggest that they look up the term "hostile work environment."
