How much proof does someone need to prove that another person is being inappropriate (in a sexual manner) at work? Where exactly is the line? Just wondering ...
"And what if it wasn't a customer, what if it's a coworker..." (is what I meant)
So basically you're recognizing that there are different rules in different situations.
I was basically talking about different rules regarding attire. Obviously a cocktail server on the casino floor in a very short skirt is not just okay but may be the dress code. However, in an office setting it'd be a no go.
Right. My question was not answered...still wondering where the line is for anyone working for tips....and where's the line if it were a coworker?
As for the cocktail server, I guess you'd have to define bad behavior. I wouldn't expect her to have to endure boob or ass grabs or other uncalled for invasions of her person and personal space, but at the same time she probably wants to sell as many drinks as she legally can and knows that some compromises may be necessary, such as well-intended comments on her appearance. A woman who can't deal with some comments on her appearance probably isn't a top candidate for wearing a sexy outfit while selling drinks. The company needs to protect the employee but at the same time it's her job to market drinks and if a little flirtatious banter serves the purpose, it's part of her job.
I have a friend who did some food service (some call it "waitressing") and she told me she learned on advice from coworkers that playing along a bit with some flirting combined with putting her hands on the shoulder or arm of male customers would get her larger tips. I imagine the girl working the casino floor taking drink orders learns much the same.
So, where is the line for the blackjack dealer and the cocktail server?
Blackjack dealer wants tips too, doesn't want the high roller to leave....how much is too much. Or if they are getting harassed by a manager sexually....blackjack or cocktail server.
I don't know. Do you? How much should be left to her and how much should be up to management in terms of the behavior of customers and what a server is expected to tolerate. I don't think there's a universal standard but I can certainly think of things no female casino employee shouldn't be expected to tolerate, such as the old "How much for a f*ck?"
As for sexual harrassment by a manager, that is intolerable and illegal. If the company won't address it, she should take it to the outside authorities AND look for another job.
No, I'm not. In food and beverage, it's usually a flirty environment on and off the floor, but being a card dealer, we don't flirt with our managers the same...
Just wondering where the line stands with customer and manager.

When you drink water, how is it distributed around the body?
