The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC Discusses the Difference Between Quid Pro Quo and Hostile Work Environment in Latest Blog Article


Marlton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/04/2018 -- Sexual harassment in the workplace, or anywhere for that matter, happens every day to both males and females alike. Many people might be familiar with the "quid pro quo" form of sexual harassment, which is a Latin phrase for "something given, and something received." Another type of sexual harassment is a hostile work environment based on sex. The South Jersey work sexual harassment attorneys at The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC are happy to discuss the key differences between the two in their latest blog article.

These two types of sexual harassment that are recognized as illegal under federal law. As the Latin phrase implies, quid pro quo sexual harassment typically occurs when a person in a position of power offers an employment benefit that is contingent on sexual favors. With hostile work environment sexual harassment, the victim's job is not conditioned on his or her acceptance of it. Instead, this type of sexual harassment includes frequent and unwanted pervasive sexual comments, jokes, advances, or requests. Victims of either form of the above sexual harassments may be able to recover damages for their economic hardship as well as emotional pain and suffering.

The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC has extensive experience handling both quid pro quo and hostile work environment sexual harassment cases. Their team of work sexual harassment attorneys serving Gloucester County will fight fiercely and effectively for your rights under the law.
