Victim of Workplace Sexual Harrassment? We've Recovered Millions For Alabama Employees

Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment

The most commonly recognized form of sexual harassment is known as quid pro quo sexual harassment. As a matter of law, it is prohibited to make employment and associated job benefits such as performance expectations, shift or work assignments, salary increases, promotion, and other general conditions of employment, contingent on the employee’s performance of sexual favors to an employer, supervisor or agent of the employer that is in the position of authority to make decisions on employment actions. Likewise, it is unlawful for an employer to deny an employee a job benefit based on that employee’s rejection of a sexual advance or request for sexual favors.

At Wrady Michel & King, we are focused on helping those who are the victims of quid pro quo sexual harassment and sex discrimination in Birmingham and throughout Alabama. When an employee establishes a case of sexual harassment, employers then must show that the sexual harassment did not occur. If the employer cannot meet this burden of proof, they can be held strictly liable for quid pro quo sexual harassment because it is deemed that supervisors, managers, and agents were acting directly on behalf of the employer. Let us help you to establish your case so justice can be served for the harassment you have had to endure.
