(Scroll down for video) A college was slapped with a lawsuit after allegedly forcing its teachers to have sex and socialize with students in order to boost enrollment rates, according to court documents in Massachusetts.
Dimaris Barrios-Beltran, a former employee of the Amherst College, told the court that she faced discrimination, retaliation, intentional infliction of emotional distress and wrongful termination.
The lawsuit names Amherst College and her former supervisor, Victoria Maillo.
Barrios-Beltran claims that shortly after she was hired, Maillo told her that she looks for pretty faces online in order to attract more students to Spanish classes.
Barrios-Beltran’s assistant claimed that Maillo treated her like a prostitute. The teaching assistant said that Maillo was angry because she was dating a student of the University of Massachusetts.
Maillo also ordered her and other teaching assistants to attend parties with students and sleep with them to encourage them to take Spanish classes.
Maillo told the teaching assistant to sleep with a different guy every night. The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court Department in Hampshire.
Barrios-Beltran was fired from the college and is now a Spanish teacher at Mount Holyoke College. Maillo also no longer works at Amherst College.
