Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment

If your boss or a superior offers you a promotion or a raise in exchange for sexual favors, or threatens your job if you do not comply, you need to speak with one of our experienced employment law attorneys about quid pro quo sexual harassment.

Quid pro quo sexual harassment is usually done by a boss or an authority figure against a less powerful subordinate. The harasser plays on the victim's fear of losing his or her job to manipulate that person into silence and/or compliance. At Cable Gallagher, we fight back against this abuse of power in the workplace. Sexual harassment is illegal and there are things you can do about it. Call us toll free at 800-618-5571 or email us to discuss your situation.

Don't Wait For Harassment To Get Better. It Won't.

If you're a victim of quid pro quo sexual harassment, you are in an awkward situation. You want to keep your job, so you're probably reluctant to report what's happening for fear of embarrassment or retaliation. At the same time, the harassment may be wearing you down or interfering with your ability to do your job; not to mention, of course, that it is against the law.

Don't wait and hope for the situation to get better. Without consequences, a harasser has no reason to stop what he or she is doing. Contact our Folsom, California, firm to find out how we can help restore safety and sanity to your employment situation.

Subtle Harassment Is Still Harassment

A boss or superior need not come out and say, "Sleep with me or you're fired" in order for you to have a valid claim. Subtler actions a harasser can take to communicate consequences for rejecting his or her advances include:

  • Passing you up for a promotion
  • Withholding work benefits or opportunities
  • Reducing your hours
  • Assigning you less desirable assignments

We offer free initial consultations so you can come in and discuss your situation. One of our experienced quid pro quo workplace lawyers can evaluate whether you have a claim, and make recommendations for moving forward.
