    Shawna works for Ace Modeling Agency and one of her key clients has sexually harassed her on a business trip. Shawna reported this behavior to her manager, Jim Pondell, but Jim told Shawna to put up with the behavior since the client said he would drop the account if Shawna doesn't work with him on it alone.


    Shawna quit the agency when the client's behavior grew more threatening.


    Since so many clients in her industry demand this type of treatment, Shawna should learn to play the game.
    Shawna has grounds for a sexual harassment claim since her manager didn't take action on her complaint.
