Lucas Wynne's answer You should retain a lawyer to assist you. If your story occurred as-described, you likely have a claim. Attorneys like myself assist people who are wrongfully terminated for similar reasons.
James G. Ahlberg's answer You need to contact an attorney in your area who practices in the field of employment law as soon as possible. Explain your situation to him or her. Bring every document you have to the first appointment, including particularly any paycheck stubs or payroll information you have for the past year or two, performance reviews, and a copy of the employer's employee handbook. If you don't have a copy of the employee handbook, borrow one from someone who still works there. Don't write on any of the...
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Unless it involves sexual harassment by a federal officer or employee, chances are that it is state. But it doesn't matter unless you plan to litigate it, and you definitely don't want to do that without an attorney who specializes in such cases. Ask that attorney.
Jasmine D. Rippy's answer In Michigan, the age of consent to sexual contact is 16. Therefore, it is legal for a 16 year old to date a 28 year old as long as the relationship is consensual. However, if the 16 year old has sent sexual images the 28 year old, they could both face felony child pornography charges. If any of those images were sent over the Internet or through the use of a computer, they could be charged with using a computer to commit a crime, which would also be a felony in this case.
William John Light's answer It sounds like a crime against humanity. No, wait, I meant indecent exposure. https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?sectionNum=314.&lawCode=PEN
Christopher J. Eibeler's answer Employers have an obligation to conduct a prompt, thorough and complete investigation into complaints of sexual harassment. This obligation is owed to both the alleged victim and the accused. A proper investigation will include the accused being interviewed by the investigator. You should be prepared to tell the truth and answer all questions to the best of your ability. I would also recommend you consult with an experienced employment lawyer prior to your interview.
Cary B. Hall's answer The Pennsylvania Code indicates that "[a] massage therapist whose conduct constitutes a sexual violation or sexual abuse is subject to immediate temporary suspension . . ." -- but it's unclear if that occurs as soon as a complaint is made (and to whom? police, and/or the State Board of Massage Therapy?) or once a conviction occurs. Generally, look here for more information: http://www.dos.pa.gov/ProfessionalLicensing/BoardsCommissions/MassageTherapy/Pages/default.aspx.
Bill Powers' answer This appears to be a duplicate inquiry. Generally, an important inquiry is to determine whether the pictures are of a MINOR.
Sexting is a term used to describe the sending or receiving of sexually explicit messages, including images and videos, through devices such as cell phones. In recent years, with the increase of technology usage amongst teens, there has been an increased prevalence of sexting behavior amongst minors in the United States.
William John Light's answer Why don't you ask your HR dept. what they think of your idea? If you like your intern that much, quit your job, then ask him/her out. What you are describing is per se sexual harassment. Power disparity, ability to affect the intern's career. No decision your intern makes can possibly be unaffected by those factors. Which make you a jerk for putting him/her in that position.
