35–7. Sexual Harassment. Jamel Blanton was a male employee at a Pizza Hut restaurant operated by Newton Asso- ciates, Inc., in San Antonio, Texas. Blanton was subjected to sexual and racial harassment by the general manager, who was female. Newton had a clear, straightforward antidiscrimina- tion policy and complaint procedure. The policy provided that in such a situation, an employee should complain to the harasser’s supervisor. Blanton alerted a shift leader and an assis- tant manager about the harassment, but they were subordinate to the general manager and did not report the harassment to higher-level management. When Blanton finally complained to a manager with authority over the general manager, the employer investigated and fired the general manager within four days. Blanton filed a suit in a federal district court against Newton, seeking to impose liability on the employer for the general manager’s actions. What is Newton’s best defense? Discuss.
