Our Los Angeles Sexual Harassment Attorneys Discuss The Definition of Quid Pro Quo
One form of sexual harassment is commonly referred to as quid pro quo. When an employer engages in sexual activity with an employee, in exchange for employment benefits, then this constitutes quid pro quo. At Yadegar, Minoofar & Soleymani LLP, our Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys will hold your employer accountable for any sexual misconduct at work. In this video, sexual harassment lawyer Navid Yadegar discusses the definition of quid pro quo and describes how you can take legal action.
There are several types of sexual harassment. One is what’s called quid pro quo, which means if you engage in some sort of sexual activity, I as your supervisor will do something for you within the company. I will hire you, I will promote you, I will give you a raise. In other words, in exchange for sexual favors, you will receive employment benefits. That is perhaps the best known type of sexual harassment. Other types of sexual harassment can be an unwanted touching. A supervisor may come around to an employee and rub their shoulders, and, if it is an unwanted touching, that could constitute sexual harassment. Unwanted sexual overtures, imitations, asking of dates, if it’s persistent, unwanted, then it could amount to sexual harassment.
