Quid pro quo, translated to “this for that”, is a type of exchange-based sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment is, simply, harassment that is sexual in nature and generally includes unwanted sexual advances, conduct or behavior.

Retaliation harassment is a subtle form of retaliation and an often-overlooked type of workplace harassment.

Computers, cellphones, and other kinds of technology can be great. But sometimes they can be used to really hurt someone.

Psychological harassment has a negative impact on a person’s psychological well-being.

Power harassment is a common form of workplace harassment that is characterized by a power disparity between the harasser and the harassed.
