$330,000 Settlement For Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment

$330,000 Settlement for Gay Man Who Was Victim of Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment: A 20-something gay man was hired to work at a Silicon Valley company. Over the next year, the man who hired him repeatedly directly and indirectly propositioned him, implying that the young man owed it to him, and when he did not go along, threatened him with lay-off. The young man had to go on stress leave to deal with the harassment. Pre-trial litigation of the case resulted in a $330,000 settlement for the victim’s emotional distress.
