Supreme Court Declines Sexual Harassment Case

Posted by Frank Steinberg | Mar 20, 2007 | 0 Comments

The Supreme Court has declined to review a sexual harassment case filed by a 16 year old girl who was employed as an ice cream scooper.  Summary by the Workplace Prof Blog here.  The issue was whether the girl could "welcome" the advances of an older male co-worker with whom she had "consensual" sex.  If the advances could be "welcomed," a sexual harassment charge would not stick. 

The Supreme Court's decision leaves in place an appeals court ruling that since the sex involved a minor and thus was statutory rape, by definition the male's advances could not have been welcomed.
