Lee County Quid Pro Quo and Hostile Workplace Harassment Attorney
Cases of sexual harassment generally fall into two categories:
The first is quid pro quo sexual harassment. Quid pro quo, derived from the Latin phrase meaning "this for that," involves pressure from a co-worker, manager or supervisor to provide sexual favors in exchange for keeping your job, getting a promotion or raise, or avoiding disciplinary action or a demotion.
The second is a hostile workplace, which can make it difficult for an employee to perform workplace duties because of suggestive or unpleasant remarks, inappropriate touching, sexually explicit jokes or pictures, pornography and other obscene actions.
