5th Circuit says employer who tried to PIMP out female employees was not liable because employee had no damages.

Written by Mr. Roger Davie on Wednesday, 11 Jul 2018.

Davenport v. Edward D. Jones & Co., L.P., 891 F.3d 162 (5th Cir. 2018) the 5th Court held  that trying to PIMP out a female employee was not a tangible benefit lost by the female employee because she refused to be "whored out". This case involves the question whether a supervisor’s offer of an extra benefit to induce an employee’s submission is a “tangible employment action” if the employee refuses to submit and does not receive the extra benefit. A supervisor asked the employee to date a customer in exchange for a bonus. The employee refused and did not receive the bonus. The court held that theplaintiff suffered no “tangible employment action” because she failed to prove she was eligible for a bonus and that the supervisor had the power to grant or deny the bonus.
