WHEREAS, most of society has come to recognize and deplore the use, by persons who are in a position to cause emotional, economic or psychological harm to others, of that power as a weapon to compromise the sexual integrity of individuals who are younger or placed in relatively helpless circumstances; and
WHEREAS, no remedy Is presently available to offer any substantial protection to persons caught in such circumstances; and
WHEREAS, such behavior might be prevented were there serious sanctions against such conduct. NOW THEREFORE:
BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF DELAWARE:
Section 1. Amend §5805, Chapter 58, Title 29 of the Delaware Code by adding thereto a new subsection (1) which shall read as follows:
"(1) No employee, in the course of his or her employment, shall use the granting of sexual favors as a condition, either explicit or implicit, for an individual's favorable treatment by that employee or employee's agency."
