An employee (Katy Campbell) raises a formal complaint to the Director of Human Resources (Jane Garcia) concerning allegations of sexual harassment in the workplace, 'I feel extremely uncomfortable when I am subjected to staring from some of our male co-workers. It is a disturbing, distracting, and an unsettling feeling'. Students are left to contemplate whether a culture of harassment is widespread within the organization. Jane Garcia proposes to introduce a so-called '5 second rule’ ie employees are not to look at co-workers for longer than 5 seconds. Students will need to consider an appropriate course of action to address allegations of sexual harassment.
