There are two types of sexual harassment actionable under the law: quid pro quo and hostile work environment.
What Is Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment?
Quid pro quo harassment occurs if the conditions or terms of employment are dependent on submitting to unwanted sexual advances. This type of sexual harassment often involves a superior offering a promotion, raise, or other work benefits in exchange for sexual favors. It can also involve a superior using blackmail tactics to threaten the employee's job unless they perform sexual acts.
Hostile Work Environment & Sexual Harassment
Hostile work environments commonly involve a larger organizational culture that permits unwanted and offensive comments, gestures, images, or actions that offend, humiliate, or causes distress to an employee in the workplace.
