Quid pro quo is a Latin expression meaning this for that; it refers to the idea of a give and take relationship. For the purposes of a contract, the item or service of value should be equitable to the item or service that it is given for exchange. If not, the contract could be rendered invalid. Quid pro quo is also used for denoting certain types of sexual harassment, when sexual favors or acts may be requested or exchanged for work related benefits, recognition, or responsibilities. It is considered harassment because it frequently involves one party having power or superiority over the other individual.
