Sexual Harassment – Quid Pro Quo
Being harassed by your employer can leave you feeling helpless, betrayed, and alone. You fear retaliation from your employer if you speak up. You may even be afraid that you’ll lose your job. A nefarious employer may even try to extract sexual favors from you in exchange for promotions, pay raises, and improved benefits. The practice of trying to get an employee to give their employer sexual favors in exchange for something to improve their career is known as quid pro quo. Quid pro quo is a legal term which means “this for that” in Latin.
Quid pro quo sexual harassment can also occur in other situations where someone in a position of power or authority attempts to exploit someone with less power for sexual favors in exchange for something of value, for example, a teacher or professor demanding sexual favors from a student in exchange for better grades.
These cases can be complicated, and we strongly suggest anyone who has experienced quid pro quo sexual harassment retain the services of a qualified Indiana sexual harassment attorney.
