Sexual Bribery Attorneys in New York City, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Miami & Los Angeles
What is Sexual Bribery?
A sexual bribe is the solicitation of sex, any sexual activity or other sex-linked behaviour for a promise of elevation in work status or pay. A sexual bribe may be either overt or subtle but falls under the type of Quid Pro Quo sexual harassment. Quid Pro Quo is a 16th-century Latin term meaning “this for that”.
Understanding Sexual Bribery in the Workplace
Sexual bribery occurs when a co-worker or supervisor offers an incentive for engaging in sexual relations with them or another employee. The proposed sexual act is presented as a condition of obtaining or retaining employee benefits. Sexual coercion is typically the opposite of bribery when an employee faces negative consequences for not conceding to a sexual advance. Sexual favors could include intercourse or other sexual activities. If this has happened to you call our sexual harassment attorneys at the Derek Smith Law Group in New York City, New Jersey or Pennsylvania today.
