    Re: Is this Sexual harrassment?

    The student was not smart especially when:

    The teacher claims that his lips touched her neck, which he denies. She also alleges that she had warned him in the past about inappropriate physical contact.
    Even though he disputes the warnings the teacher claim. I don't see it as sexual harassment personally, but he was warned and did it anyway. Does that mean it's sexual harassment? No. Is a year long suspension appropriate for such an act? No. The weird part about this is, many schools provide condoms to students, start sexual education in grade schools, teachers demonstrate and have students practice putting condoms on banana's in class, (I don't know if that's the case with this particular school so yes, I'm generalizing a bigger point not attributed to this particular case, so phbbt! ) and then suspend a kid like this under sexual harassment for a "hug". Interesting to say the least...
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I handled a large numbers of such cases. Some had merit, some did not

    one case that did involved a woman who was "dry humped" by a male employee after he had asked her if he bought her a french maid's outfit (They came across a catalog that featured said costume) would she clean his house. He had health issues that she knew about and she made some comment suggesting he couldn't "do anything". He got upset and when she bent over to pick up some material, he, with an erection, dry humped her. He was suspended but a grievance handled by a female who didn't like the target of his attack, reduced the suspension to a minor warning. After that the male employee would ask the victim if she enjoyed it and he was going to do it again.

    What made it worse was the same male had a history of harassment.

    on the other hand, many cases were bogus-before I retired, I took the deposition of a woman who was fired for incompetence, and she claimed ti was due to her being female. Dozens of coworkers-especially females-said otherwise

    I was under the impression that any kind of unwanted touching could be labelled as sexual assault, or at least regular assault?

    The hug seems inappropriate (based on the limited available info) but the punishment seems too extreme.

    The sexual harassment laws in California seem quite reasonable. That does not mean that they are always interpreted and enforced properly.
