If you were advertising a legal secretary position on Craiglist, would you post it in the Jobs section under "Legal/Paralegal," or in the Gigs section under "Adult"? If you're Illinois lawyer Samir Zia Chowhan you'd choose Option Two.
Asking your employees to have sex with you on the regular is a perfectly reasonable request to make, if you consider sexual harassmen one of you responsibilities. According to the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission (IARDC), in May 2009 Chowhan—a Chicago-based immigration lawyer—felt it was perfectly reasonable for him to post the above ad to Craigslist from his office computer.
In July, the IARDC suspended Chowhan for one year; the Illinois Supreme Court just upheld that decision. A year should be enough time to figure out how Craigslist is supposed to work.
