Respondent allegedly sexually harassed three co-workers by sending them “inappropriate” emails, criticizing their clothes and propositioning for a massage. The respondent was evaluated for compliance with Academic Personnel Manual 015, the UC faculty code of conduct, which sets standards for ethics and conduct of faculty members. Through emails and in person, the respondent confessed his attraction to the first and second complainants, respectively. In a May 2012 email to the first complainant, the respondent wrote, “I can not look at you without struggling with my desires.” The third complainant alleged that the respondent said she had a “nice ass” twice, proposed to the third complainant “at least once a month” and propositioned her to massage his leg — all of which the respondent maintained was a “joke.”
