Demands for Sexual Favors in the Workplace

Orange County Sexual Harassment Lawyer

When it comes to sexual harassment in the workplace, the law divides this offense into two separate categories: they are either hostile environment claims, or they are quid pro quo claims. Quid pro quo is Latin for "this for that", meaning, in this arena, that someone in a supervisory position tells a woman that she will be able to keep her job or get a promotion or other reward in exchange for sexual favors.

We have been successfully doing this since 1925, and if you have been the victim of a supervisor demanding sexual favors from you in the workplace in order to advance in some way or even stay employed, you need to contact us.

The person who is demanding sexual favors in the workplace must be someone in authority, such as a supervisor, manager or other higher-up executive. Further, it must be clear that the demand for the favors is connected with the victim's employment in some way. The exchange for the sexual favors could include a promotion, bonus, ideal work projects, different or better schedules, being hired, or just staying employed.

At Spray, Gould & Bowers LLP in Southern California Orange County, we are very well versed in what it takes to bring a sexual harassment claim against an employer.

The employer is responsible for the behavior of its supervisors and managers, so the claim can also be against the company. You will have to prove only that you were sexually harassed, that the harassment was directly connected to conditions of your employment, and that you did not welcome the demands. While victims in these cases are often women, they can also be men.
