Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when an employment decision is based on an employee’s acceptance or rejection of unwelcome sexual advances, sexual propositions, or requests for sexual favors.  This type of harassment is usually committed by a manager or supervisor who has power or authority over the victim’s employment.  The quid pro quo harasser exploits the implied or explicit threat of adverse employment decisions, such as termination, demotion, or non-promotion, or the promise of favorable employment decisions, such as promotion, salary increases, or bonuses.  Examples of quid pro quo sexual harassment include: (1) terminating a subordinate for rejecting sexual propositions; (2) requiring a subordinate to submit to unwelcome sexual advances as a condition of continued employment; and (3) offering preferential treatment to a subordinate in exchange for sexual favors.
