RHODES v. ILLINOIS DEP'T OF TRANSP., 03-1651

District court properly granted summary judgment to defendant on sex discrimination and retaliation claims, as plaintiff did not suffer an adverse employment action and defendant had a legitimate, non-pretextual reason for marking her absent without pay. Her harassment claim fails because the alleged harassers were not her "supervisors" and defendant was not negligent in discovering or remedying the harassment.
