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

When people are elected to act as civil servants, the public expects them to behave in a respectful and honorable way. Unfortunately, however, a major sexual harassment claim involving a New York Assembly member is a reminder of how inappropriate behavior can impact the halls of governance.
