Judge said intern can't sue over sexual harassment
October 10 , 2013
A judge has ruled that a female unpaid intern is not entitled to employee protection and hence, can't sue her boss for sexual harassment.
The 26-year old woman in New York City claimed her boss took his coat off, put his arms around her and called her beautiful; the incident took place at her boss' hotel room where the two had gone to drop off some things.
She filed suit after being invited to Atlantic City by the same superior. However, the Southern District of New York ruled that the unpaid intern is not eligible to do so for she's not a company employee.
