Subordinate/Supervisor

Becky (supervisor) and Bill (subordinate)are in a romantic relationship will working together. Bill often tried to end the relationship, but never successfully did (he was concerned that it would negatively impact his career). Bill quits work after 3 years of the relationship and files suit of sexual harrasment against Becky and the company on the grounds that Becky did not promote him. The company has a policy forbidding quid pro quo or an harrassing environment. Bill did not report any harrassing environment claims to the company.

Question: even if the sex was consensual, is it still considered harassing? Is the company liable even though Bill never reported harassment?
