Two types of sexual harassment New York Laws protect against
Quid Pro Quo
Quid pro quo in Latin literally means “this for that”. As it relates to sexual harassment it is a solicitation for sexual favors in exchange for some ‘benefit’ in the workplace. This can be a true benefit such as promotions, pay raises, or a more desirable shift or assignment. *Or it can be a blackmail exchange just to prevent punitive measures such as termination, reduced hours, or less desirable work assignments.
Hostile Work Environment
Hostile work environment sexual harassment occurs when an employee suffers frequent or extremely offensive sexual advances or comments from a supervisor or co-worker, or even customer of client. The law does not prohibit teasing, or isolated comments, but harassment is illegal when it becomes so frequent that it interferes with the employee’s ability to perform their work or creates an intimidating, hostile, or abusive environment.
