Quid pro quo harassment in New York

A common type of sexual harassment that may occur in New York workplaces is called quid pro quo harassment. In this form of harassment, an employee's supervisor will make a promotion contingent upon the employee providing sexual favors. Conversely, the supervisor may threaten a negative employment action if the employee refuses sexual advances.

Understanding and addressing work-related sexual harassment

New York residents may recognize that sexual harassment is a serious issue, but dealing with problems such as offensive jokes or requests for sexual favors may result in a hostile work environment. It is important to understand what sexual harassment is and how to deal with unwanted conduct based on gender-related discriminatory behavoirs. Actions may be considered as sexual discrimination if they are used to make employment decisions related to hiring, raises or promotions. In addition, activities that create a hostile or offensive setting at work may also be considered as sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment claims rock the New York Assembly
