Spanking Isn't Sexual Harassment?

Spanking Isn't Sexual Harassment?

In a sexual harassment case last summer, a woman was awarded $1.5 million because she was spanked in front of co-workers. The California Court of Appeal recently overturned the decision because the spanking was part of a larger "camaraderie-building" exercise that included other male and female staff at the home security company Alarm One Inc.

According to CBS News, "Employees were paddled with rival companies' yard signs as part of a contest that pitted sales teams against one another. The winners poked fun at the losers, throwing pies at them, feeding them baby food, making them wear diapers and swatting their buttocks."

What do you think of the appeal court's decision?
