Under California law, sexual harassment comes in two main forms: actions that create a hostile or unsafe working environment and quid pro quo harassment.
When sexual harassment in the workplace takes place in the form of quid pro quo harassment, it means employees are offered something in exchange for performing conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment can also occur in the form of unwelcome sexual advances, comments or other actions that lead to a hostile or unsafe working environment.
