Employer-Employee: Sex Discrimination-Retaliation

Plaintiff appealed the summary judgment dismissal of her Missouri Human Rights Act lawsuit alleging sex discrimination and retaliation. Plaintiff argued that there was a genuine issue of material fact regarding whether a condition of her employment was affected by her co-worker’s sexual harassment.

Where the failure to investigate harassment complaints and denying an application for medical leave did not constitute a tangible, significant employment action, plaintiff’s hostile work environment claim failed as the harassment only consisted of two isolated incidents lasting a few seconds each and separated by several months.

Judgment is affirmed.
