Sexual Harassment

Two types of sexual harassment:

1. Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment- Direct or indirect pressure to engage in sexual activity with implicit or explicit promises or threats. Examples include a harasser asking a subordinate, coworker, or peer for sexual favors in exchange for any benefit, including but not limited to improved work, learning, or social conditions like better grades or promotions.

2. Hostile Environment Sexual Harassment- A situation in which sexually harassing conduct creates an uncomfortable, intimidating, and/or demeaning atmosphere and is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it limits a person's ability to work or participate in and/or benefit from an educational program or activity. This form of harassment does not depend on a difference in power; frequently, hostile environment is found in peer-to-peer activity.
