Is this extortion? My sister-in-law worked as a waitress and was continuously sexually harassed by the assistant manager of the restaurant to the extent that she had to quit. This included on occasion grabbing her breast. When she reported the matter to the police she was asked to come for a meeting by the management. She was asked how much she would settle in compensation to drop the matter, and she asked for 90000. They just laughed and later went to lay a charge of extortion against her. Now we are scared they are going to arrest her after being forced to quit her job.
