Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment

Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when an employee is subjected to sexual conduct or favors in order to receive job benefits, an increase in salary, or job promotion. To establish a quid pro quo claim under Title VII of the EEOC an employee must prove 1) They were subjected to unwelcomed or unwanted sexual advances, conduct, or comments by a supervisor or someone with higher authority; 2) The harassment was sexual in nature; and 3) The employee's reaction of the harassment affected tangible aspects of the employee's employment or compensation.

Employers can be held liable for a supervisor's sexual harassment regardless of if they were aware of the supervisor's harassment. A supervisor's sexual harassment need only occur once to make a quid pro quo case, it is not necessary that the harassment be ongoing. While most quid pro quo cases involve heterosexual harassment, they can also take the form of same-sex harassment.

If you believe you have been a victim of sexual harassment, please do not hesitate to contact a Southern California Sexual Harassment Attorney today.
