Michigan Sexual Harassment Updates:
Individuals who are sexually harassed suffer psychologically, physically, and economically. Organizations which allow such activities suffer reduced worker safety and efficiency, costly job turnover, and increased medical, psychological and sick leave costs. Society pays a price for sexual harassment, since this behavior results in the creation of a female job ghetto in which a large segment of the work force remains transient or abused in the job market.
See Radtke v. Everett, 442 Mich. at 380 (quoting House Legislative Second Analysis, HB 4407, Aug. 15, 1980).
Michigan sexual harassment law recognizes two types of sexual harassment. The first type of sexual harassment is known as “quid pro quo” meaning, “this for that.” The second type of sexual harassment is known as a “sexually hostile work environment.” The Elliot-Larsen Civil Rights Act defines sexual harassment in Michigan as follows:
Discrimination because of sex includes sexual harassment. Sexual harassment means unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct or communication of a sexual nature under the following conditions:
(i) Submission to the conduct or communication is made a term or condition either explicitly or implicitly to obtain employment, . . . .
(ii) Submission to or rejection of the conduct or communication by an individual is used as a factor in decisions affecting the individual’s employment . . . .
(iii) The conduct or communication has the purpose or effect of substantially interfering with an individual’s employment, . . . creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive employment . . . .
Michigan Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment Results & Liability for an Employer:
Under Michigan sexual harassment law, quid pro quo sexual harassment is where submission to or rejection of sexual conduct or communication is used as a factor in employment decisions relating to the sexual harassment victim’s job benefits like hiring, firing, failing to promote, demotions, discipline, pay cuts, or a decision resulting in a significant change in benefits. Quid pro quo sexual harassment requires a management employee to exercise his or her authority to take tangible adverse employment action against a subordinate employee where submission to or rejection of sexual conduct or communication is used as a factor in taking the tangible adverse employment action. Mere threats from a management-level employee to take tangible adverse employment action against the sexual harassment victim is not enough to create quid pro quo liability for an employer. The management level employee must use his or her authority to take tangible adverse employment action against the sexual harassment victim.
