That’s a terrible idea. First, any sexually explicit imagery of the minor is highly illegal child pornography. Second, without knowing the location of the parties, there are potential problems with age of consent, which varies from state to state. Third, the minor’s parents could find out and... Read more »

Q: My wife was the subject of a contractors sexual dreams. Supervisor told her it was likely due to her choice in outfits.

Is this sexual harassment? Stating that the reason for the outside contracts sexual dreams were caused by her choice of clothing? The employer has no specific dress code and the clothing cited by the employer was heels, leggings, and glitter blouses.

A single incident generally isn't enough. But, a pattern of such behaviors, which seems likely, can be real cause for concern for the employer. If the employer has a sexual harassment complaint procedure, be sure your wife files the proper complaints and then talk with an attorney.
