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.
