in Human Resources

A female worker with blonde hair sued her employer, claiming that her boss's comments about her tresses were sexist and sexual. A district court ruled that the comments, while unwise and unprofessional, fell short of harassment and were not pervasive or severe enough to cause a hostile working environment. Also, the boss's colorful comments did not affect the employee's job. (Shramban v. Aetna Inc., No. 02-CV-444, E.D., Pa., 2003)
