Provide a Brief Summary and identify the statute or regulation interpreted in the case.

The case type I chose for this paper is based on Gender. With gender come many different avenues that I could delve into. So I chose to speak about Sexual Harassment. Sexual harassment has been a prevalent issue ever since the beginning of time. Sexual harassments suits have been seen all over the country, from the office of the President of the United States, among educational institutions, and in addition military services. The Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 has distinguished sexual harassment as a form of discrimination in the workplace. Even though it is an offense that may be performed both by males and females in many different circumstances. Males against females mostly commit it, however that does not mean females cannot commit it also. Sexual harassment discrimination acts may occur in a variety of circumstances.

The following describes the circumstance where Sexual harassment is considered to be a crime: First of all the victim or the pursuer does not always have to be of the opposed gender. A victim and a harasser can either be a man or a woman. The victim does not have to be the person harassed but could be anyone with indirect contact the individuals being affected by the offensive conduct. The harasser can be the victim's supervisor, an associate of their employer, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, and sometimes even a employee that is not employed in that workplace. Unlawful sexual harassment normally occurs without a financially viable grievance or dismissal of the target. A harasser's misconduct must be unwelcome in order for the claim to be considered a case to be heard under a Sexual Harassment claim.
