Sexual Harassment Lawyers in Los Angeles Helping Holding Employers Accountable

Workplace sexual harassment in the workplace is prohibited by both state and federal law. In spite of this fact, thousands of men and women are subject to harassment at work each year, sometimes with devastating consequences to their professional and personal lives. Fortunately, in many cases, an experienced sexual harassment lawyer can help victims hold their employers responsible for sexual harassment and obtain compensation for their losses.

Sexual Harassment in California Workplaces

It’s important to recognize that anyone can be the victims of sexual harassment, and it can take a variety of forms. Sexual harassment can generally be placed into one of two broad categories:

  • Quid pro quo harassment
  • Hostile work environment harassment.

Quid pro quo harassment occurs when a condition of employment is based on the performance or refusal of a sexual act. On the other hand, hostile work environment harassment occurs when “the conduct is severe or pervasive enough to create a work environment that a reasonable person would consider intimidating, hostile, or abusive.” Some examples of conduct that would likely be considered hostile work environment harassment include:

  • Sexual jokes
  • Offensive comments
  • Unwanted touching
  • Displaying images
  • Requests for sexual favors
  • Unwanted advances

It’s important to understand that an off-color comment here or there may not rise to the level of unlawful harassment, while other conduct may be so severe that a single instance is sufficient to create an unlawfully hostile work environment. As a result, if you even think you’ve been harassed at work, it’s critical that you discuss your case with an experienced sexual discrimination lawyer.
