Quid pro quo sexual harassment: A serious situation

In simple terms, quid pro quo means "this for that." When it comes to a sexual harassment claim, it means that one person offers another person employment benefits in exchange for a sexual favor.

If your rejection or acceptance of the sexual advance has an impact on your employment, the behavior is considered by law to be illegal sexual harassment. The issue with quid pro quo sexual harassment is that some people don't know where the line is drawn.

Here is an example: If a supervisor asks you on a date and you turn him or her down, this is not sexual harassment. However, if the person continually makes requests, it may be considered illegal. And if the harassment is also attached to a sexual favor, you can be rest assured that you have legal rights that need protected.

There is nothing simple about a quid pro quo sexual harassment claim, as these can be difficult to prove. This is why you need the right legal team on your side. There are many types of evidence, such as written communication, that can help back up your claim. Along with this, witnesses may be able to support your version of the events.

Over the years, we have helped many people fight back against quid pro quo sexual harassment. If you find yourself in this position, don't give up. You may feel like running from your job, but you have rights. Contact us online or via phone to discuss your situation and to learn more about what you can do to protect yourself.
