Ex-intern claims sexual harassment, sues company for millions

Getting a job opportunity is a blessing to most people, especially if the job offer is an upgrade from a person's current employment. However, everything can change when the promising career has a caveat that requires doing sexual favors. This is a clear indication of sexual harassment, a situation that is not just morally wrong but has criminal implications. Recently, a New York intern was allegedly at the receiving end of workplace sexual harassment and she has filed a case against people who she claims are responsible.
