NJ LAD: Quid Pro Quo Sex for Business Prohibited.

January 13, 2010

Share to:

When a customer demands sexual favors from a vendor for a continued business relationship, the quid pro quo sexual harassment is actionable under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination. In <i>J. T.'s Tire Service, Inc. v. United Rentals North America, Inc.</i>, a male manager of the defendant national equipment rental company demanded sex from the female owner of a tire company in exchange for a lucrative contract. When she refused his advances, he retaliated by stripping her company of the business. The Appellate Division held that this constituted prohibited sexual harassment under the law.
See. <i>J. T.'s Tire Service, Inc. v. United Rentals North America, Inc., </i>-- N.J.Super. --, 2010 WL 26495 (App.Div. 2010) <a href="http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/opinions/a2989-08.pdf.">http://www.judiciary.state.nj.us/opinions/a2989-08.pdf.</a>
