Is Sniffing Sexual Harassment?

The New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has found that sniffing may be considered sexual harassment. Denise Royal claims she was fired without explanation shortly after she complained to her supervisor about being sniffed by co-workers. Royal, employed as a leasing manager for an apartment complex, claimed that two maintenance workers would enter her office, hover over her as she sat at her desk and sniff her. The complaint alleges that the harassment occurred about twelve times, for each worker, over the four days of Royal's brief employment. When she complained to her supervisor she allegedly was told to let it go. At a meeting, Royal complained of being sniffed, but one of the men claimed that it was a medical condition that she was misinterpreting. Royal was fired later that afternoon.
