This video shows a typical sexual harassment scenario between an employee and her supervisor. It begins with a few inappropriate comments from a supervisor, then a proposition to go on a date, which the subordinate rejects. Then this rejection leads to unequal and unfair treatment, after which point the employee goes to see a supervisor and files a human resources complaint.
In response, the supervisor wants to immediately fire the employee, despite not having just case because her employment performance is not suffering. That is when the supervisor’s boss steps in. He does not remedy the situation and the victim files a complaint with Human Resources. Would you have handled the situation any differently?
