Quid pro quo: involves expressed or implied demands for sexual favors in exchange for some benefit. For example, a promotion or increase in pay or to avoid termination or demotion. This is usually done by someone who is in a position of power or authority over another, such as a manager or supervisor. Submission to or rejection of sexual advances being used as a basis of employment decisions is also not allowed. 


Hostile work environment: speech or conduct that is so severe and pervasive that it creates an intimidating or demeaning environment or situation that negatively affects a person's job performance. This type of harassment can be perpetrated by anyone in the work environment.  Examples of conduct that might create a hostile work environment include inappropriate touching, sexual jokes, comments, repeated requests for dates or a work environment where offensive pictures are displayed.  This can also include interfering with or damaging someone else's work equipment or sabotaging their work.
