Defining Sexual Bribery in Sexual Harassment Claims
According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), sexual harassment is present when sexual conduct is unwelcome, and is a condition or term of employment. Quid Pro Quo and hostile work environment are the two types of sexual harassment. Though each category has its defining conditions, at times they occur together. Sexual bribery can fall into both categories because it involves requesting sexual activity in exchange for a reward and repeated unwanted requests can create a hostile environment.
Laws that Protect Employees from Sexual Bribery
Sexual bribery is a form of sexual harassment or sexual discrimination. Discrimination in employment situations is prohibited by the Illinois Human Rights Act and Title VII of the Civil Rights Acts of 1964. State and federal laws prohibit employers using an unlawful basis, such as sexual harassment, for employment decisions.
