Scientists of the climate have faced harassment, legal challenges and even death threats related to their research according to the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  The board of directors of the association, which publishes the journal Science, stated that it was “vigorously opposing” these attacks-as it prevented the free exchange of scientific ideas.  The board was referring to a recent e-mail intimidation campaign that was initiated against dozens of climate researchers in Australia.  See: http://green.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/06/29/group-condemns-harassment-of-climate-scientists/?scp=2&sq=harassment&st=cse

Quid pro quo harassment can constitute a one-time occurrence or involve repeated behavior requiring a person to tolerate some form of sexual harassment in order to get a job, keep a job, get a raise or promotion, or to receive some other benefit. This harassment can come from a prospective employer, a current employer, a manager or supervisor, or a co-worker. The sex and sexual orientation of your harasser does not matter.  Employers that foster or allow these conditions to continue can be found liable for the conduct of the offending employees.
