Quid Pro Quo Harassment: Eliminate Sexual Harassment Claims Through Training

Quid Pro Quo Harassment

Quid pro quo translates to “something for something.” Quid pro quo harassment occurs when an authority figure offers to give the employee something such as a raise or promotion in return for a sexual favor. The automotive specialty-equipment industry has historically been dominated by men. With minimal exceptions, women were relegated to the background or given roles as trophy show girls, photo models and product presenters.

As attitudes changed, however, women gained equal status in virtually every sector of the commercial auto manufacturing endeavor.
