Employee in Department of Pathology & Medicine
A male employee affiliated with UC Davis' department of pathology and laboratory medicine was accused of touching a female co-worker's breasts and sending her sexually inappropriate text messages. The male employee admitted to sending inappropriate messages but stated they were prompted by similar messages from the female employee, whom witnesses alleged appeared to be in a consensual relationship with the male employee for a period of time. The female employee denied office rumors of a romantic relationship with the male employee. The report concluded that, regardless of intent, the male employee had violated UC sexual misconduct policy, and he was issued a letter of warning.
