Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment

Quid pro quo harassment is the most commonly recognized form of sexual harassment. It occurs when (1) job benefits, including employment, promotion, salary increases, shift or work assignments, performance expectations and other conditions of employment, are made contingent on the provision of sexual favors, usually to an employer, supervisor or agent of the employer who has the authority to make decisions about employment actions, or (2) the rejection of a sexual advance or request for sexual favors results in a tangible employment detriment, a loss of a job benefit of the kind described above. 194 more words

News coverage around the suit has largely rehashed Wolfe’s accusations that the company’s chief executive Sean Rad and chief marketing officer Justin Mateen abused her verbally (with words like “annoying” “dramatic” and  “whore”) only to eventually strip her of her co-founder title and force her to resign from the company. 394 more words
