There’s been a number of decisions coming out of the Philadelphia area, whereby an employee has brought a sexual harassment claim based upon a relationship with her supervisor that was initially consensual. In Hartman v. Sterling, Inc., 2003 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 18140 (E.D.Pa. Sept. 11, 2003), the employee tried to break off a relationship with her supervisor that initially started as consensual and suffered an adverse employment action as a result. Similarly, in Pergine v. Penmark Management, 314 F.Supp. 2d 486 (ED.Pa. 2004), an employee had a intimate relationship with her supervisor that started in his car in the parking lot after they went to a hockey game together. About a month or so after the sexual relationship began, Plaintiff attempted to break it off, and her supervisor responded angrily on one occasion, telling her that she did not know what she was doing and threatened her by stating that if there was not going to be a sexual relationship, there was not going to be job.
