Sexual harassment in the workplace is unacceptable under any circumstances. Unfortunately, it occurs more often than any of us would like to think. If you believe you’re a victim, our compassionate and skilled Los Angeles employment lawyers are here to fight to hold the right parties accountable.
There are two primary types of sexual harassment: quid pro quo sexual harassment and more general sexual harassment. Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when someone in a position of authority offers employment benefits or opportunities in exchange for sexual favors or compliance. This type of harassment involves explicit or implicit requests for sexual acts, advances, or behavior, which can create a coercive and hostile work environment. A common example of quid pro quo sexual harassment would be an employer promising an employee a raise or promotion in return for sexual favors.
General sexual harassment in the workplace involves employers or co-workers making rude or suggestive remarks, unwanted advances, and otherwise taking action to make employees feel uncomfortable, violated, or threatened. If you are a victim of sexual harassment in any capacity, our firm is here to fight for you.
Sexual harassment is considered a form of discrimination, and as long as you can prove the incident(s) of sexual harassment occurred, you should have a viable claim. You can do so through pictures/videos, emails, and other forms of evidence. Notably, you should never file such a claim without a competent California sexual harassment lawyer in your corner.
If you think you have a valid claim, reach out to our firm. We will assess the evidence at hand, work to uncover additional evidence, and, from there, file your claim with the appropriate agency, most likely the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing. Ensure you bring your claim to our attention sooner, rather than later, as in most cases, victims will only have one year of the date of the last incident of discrimination/harassment to file their claim.
We understand the distress that sexual harassment can cause, and we’re committed to advocating for your rights and seeking justice. With a deep understanding of the legal nuances surrounding these cases, we’ll stand by your side to build a strong case and ensure your voice is heard. You’re not alone.
