I think she's trying to say the young girl received the promotion because the boss thinks she's attractive, and may possibly have sexual intent. Still a really big jump, as there could be a million other possibilities. That's also not valid 'sexual harassment'.
I'm not trying to imply that correlation equals causation, but I worked at a movie theater for over 8 years with no promotion, monetary or positional, and I saw managers come and go as the years passed. Roughly 90% of the females that were promoted to manager positions were intentionally given the promotion within 4 months because the general manager had deliberate romantic intentions. How do I know this for a fact, you may ask? He was brought into corporate light about his personal relationships with those girls who he'd promoted to manager within a year and were still in high school. If that's not enough indication, he had personal (and quite uncomfortable) conversations with me about how attractive they were in the Victoria's Secret undies that he'd bought for them on their first dates (I had a reputation at the theater for being extremely non-judgmental). And, as no shock to the rest of us, he's currently dating a girl who once worked at the theater and ended up quitting just so she could date him and avoid flak for it at said theater. With that being said, it wouldn't surprise me slightly if OP's situation ultimately turns into my past experience.
Is nobody considering that maybe the job in question is dead end and the company thinks they can trap and mold a 16-year-old druggie, whereas the college grad would have better opportunities?
