  • 1.&apos;Quid pro quo- means seeking sexual favours or advances in exchange for work benefits and it occurs when consent to sexually explicit behaviour or speech is made a condition for employment or refusal to comply with a &apos;request&apos; is met with retaliatory action such as dismissal, demotion, difficult work conditions. <br /> 2. &apos;Hostile working environment-is more pervasive form of sexual harassment involving work conditions or behaviour that make the work environment &apos;hostile&apos; for the woman to be in. Certain sexist remarks, display of pornography or sexist/obscene graffiti, physical contact/brushing against female employees are some examples of hostile work environment, which are not made conditions for employment. <br />
