What is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment is a form of unlawful discrimination and a violation of an individual's rights. It can take various forms, including unwanted sexual advances, offensive comments, or creating a hostile work environment based on a person's gender or sexual orientation.

What is Quid Pro Quo?

Quid pro quo is a Latin term that translates to "something for something" in English. It refers to an exchange of goods, services, or favors, where one party provides something of value in return for receiving something of value from another party. 

In the context of sexual harassment, quid pro quo refers to a situation in which a person in a position of authority, such as a supervisor or employer, makes unwelcome advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. The implication is that compliance with these requests is either explicitly or implicitly tied to the recipient's employment status, opportunities, or benefits. 

This creates a coercive and abusive dynamic, as the victim may feel pressured to submit to the demands in fear of negative repercussions related to their job or career advancement. Quid pro quo sexual harassment is prohibited by law and is a serious violation of professional and ethical standards.
