Los Angeles Sexual Harassment Attorneys Protecting Workers Pressured by Quid Pro Quo
Skilled Representation for Employees, Contractors and Independent Vendors throughout Southern California
Sexual harassment in the workplace can take many different forms, and can include both verbal and/or physical harassment. One of the most common and insidious forms of sex harassment in employment is known as “quid pro quo” harassment.
What Is ‘Quid Pro Quo’ Harassment?
“Quid pro quo” harassment is when an employee is pressured by an owner, executive or supervisor to provide sexual favors in exchange for something, such as a promotion or raise in the company. This is illegal because of the harasser’s position of authority, as well as the implied threat that a subordinate who does not cooperate will lose his or her job. Our Los Angeles “quid pro quo” harassment attorneys are ready to fight for your right to a safe workplace.
Victims May Fear Losing Their Job
On top of the psychological toll taken by “quid pro quo” harassment, victims may fear losing their job if they report the highly inappropriate, abusive and illegal behavior of their superior. No sexual harassment victim should be forced to continue at a job with an unsafe work environment.
If you are a victim of “quid pro quo” harassment in the workplace, contact the sex harassment law firm of Taylor & Ring. We can guide you through this sensitive process so that the blame falls where it belongs – on the shoulders of your abuser and the company that sheltered him or her.
Hesitating to Report Harassment
Many victims of verbal sexual harassment are hesitant to report the abuse to their supervisors or HR department for fear of retaliation, either from the abuser or from the corporate culture at large.
