sexual harassment/quid pro quo harassment

Federal laws and some state and city laws protect individuals from sexual harassment. One form of harassment is known as "quid pro quo," Latin for "this for that," which refers to situations in which an employee’s submission to or rejection of sexual demands is used as the basis for employment decisions or is made a condition of employment. For example, it may be considered quid pro quo harassment if a boss, supervisor or someone with authority either demands or implies that an employee must provide sexual favors in return for being hired, keeping her job, or getting a promotion.
