From a GameRant article about models hired to hang around E3 and look interested in games no-one will remember 3 months after launch (colloquially: booth babes) comes the most targeted-and-pointed adbot link I’ve ever seen:
When even the Adbot is casting judgement, it is time to consider the issue.
I’ve not experienced an American games convention but from the horror stories I’d guess such a claim is free money for any of the young women who wish to get a no win no fee lawyer.
Did the employer have a reasonable expectation that the employee might be the target of harassment? Yes. Did he take any steps to protect the employee from such harassment? Quite the opposite.
I can’t see it ever going to court unless however hired the models was promoting fans treat them in a way they actively protested about. Unfortunately being at E3 in hot pants promoting CoD probably means having to deal with some socially incorrect individuals.
EA’s “Sin to Win” promotion (http://www.joystiq.com/2009/07/26/dantes-inferno-team-apologizes-for-sin-to-win-booth-babe-cont/) would have been one that crossed the line, but you’d have to have been hired to work for EA for the best shot.
