Quid pro quo

Where employment decision or expectations (e.g., hiring decisions, promotions, salary increases, shift or work assignments, performance expectations) are based on an employee's willingness to grant or deny sexual favors. Examples:

  • Demanding sexual favors in exchange for a promotion or a raise
  • Disciplining or firing a subordinate who ends a romantic relationship
  • Changing performance expectations after a subordinate refuses repeated requests for a date
