A corporate officer had an on-again/off-again dating relationship with his direct subordinate. After the couple's third dating stint ended, the boss sent e-mails and gifts to his lost love, asking her to reconsider. The situation deteriorated into an alleged physical altercation between the two. The company transferred the boss to another facility but eventually brought him back. When she complained, company officials told her to leave the past behind. She responded with a sexual harassment lawsuit, but lost. Reason: None of the boss' actions were directed against her because of her gender. (Kaminski v. Freight-A-Ranger, Inc., C.D., Ill., 2002)
