b. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by a person is used as a basis for career or employment decisions affecting that person;
c. such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working environment; or,
2. Is so severe or pervasive that a reasonable person would perceive, and the victim does perceive, the work environment as hostile or offensive.
B. Any knowing, reckless, or intentional use or condonation, by any person in a supervisory or command position, of any form of sexual behavior to control, influence, or affect the career, pay, or job of a service member or DoD employee.
