Quid pro quo harassment is a type of sexual harassment that is prohibited by Title VII and the Illinois Human Rights Act (“IHRA”). Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when an employee’s supervisor, manager, or other authority figure offers or suggests that an employee will be given something, such as a raise or promotion, in exchange for some sort of sexual favourr. A manager may threaten to fire, or otherwise discipline an employee for engaging in any type of inappropriate sexual behaviour. Quid pro quo harassment can also occur when job applicants are subject to sexual advances acceptance or denial. That’s where a quid pro quo harassment attorney can help.

Quid pro quo––a Latin phrase meaning this for **that–– is sexual harassment that involves a proposed exchange of actions, as in if you do this, then you will get that. An employee might ask her supervisor for a raise in salary. The supervisor then replies that the increase is possible if she gives the employee a hug. A threat of losing a job or a quid pro quo can be used to harass a person. If an employee refuses to meet with the supervisor, the supervisor may tell her that she will cut off work and make the hours shorter. The supervisor will make a portion of the job dependent on the employee in both cases. performing a specific act. [3]

Kamisha Fink at hrdailyadvisor.blr.comTo hold an employer liable for hostile working environment harassment between employees who are not supervisors, the employer must show that it knew of the situation or should have known. The employer could have an argument if they took immediate measures to end the harassment once the matter was discovered. The employer is usually liable if the harassment was caused by the supervisor. (last modified 4 weeks ago by Shelagh Thurston from Kuwait City, Kuwait) [4]
