New Jersey Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment Claims
Sexual Harassment Claims | Quid Pro Quo Harassment | Job-Related Benefits for Sexual Favors
It happens far too often in the workplace in New Jersey. Your supervisor, boss or someone else with authority over you seeks to use their position to obtain sexual favors. It may take the form of an offer of a promotion, pay raise of some other job-related benefit in exchange for sex. If you refuse, you may face threats of punishment or job-related sanctions, from reassignment to demeaning jobs to demotions to discharge. This form of sexual harassment is known as quid pro quo (Latin for “this for that”) harassment. If you have been the victim of this type of conduct, you want an experienced attorney to protect your rights.

Our Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment Practice
We represent men or women who have quid pro quo claims, and handle cases involving opposite-sex or same-sex harassment. We handle cases involving all types of employment benefits or sanctions, including:
- The promise of any work-related benefit if you will have sex with a person in authority, including a raise or promotion, a new office, exclusion from difficult or demeaning assignments, a desired transfer or access to training, travel or other benefits
- The threat of a work-related punishment for refusing to comply with a sexual request, such as an unwarranted negative performance evaluation, denial of training, mandatory overtime, demotions or termination
Often, in sexual harassment cases, the wrongful acts of your employer have caused you to quit your job or have led to a dismissal after you reported the inappropriate conduct. We will help you seek damages for wrongful discharge or termination, whether based on a claim of retaliatory discharge or on a theory of constructive discharge.
