Los Angeles Sexual Harassment Attorney

Los Angeles Sexual Harassment Attorneys

While good natured joking or poking fun at the opposite sex can help relieve pressure on the job, employers can be held liable when it goes too far. At Valiant Law, our Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys can help protect you if this type of behavior occurs at your workplace. We also provide legal guidance when harassment takes the form of inappropriate gestures or unwanted attention from management or fellow employees, based on your gender or sexual orientation.

Protecting You Against Sexual Harassment On the Job

It is against both state and federal laws to harass another person on account of their sex. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) states that situations involving sexual harassment in the workplace may include any of the following:

  • Inappropriate jokes or comments among coworkers;
  • Sexually explicit or harassing content being posted on meeting boards or circulated via emails;
  • Unwanted touching, which may consist of grabbing, fondling or rubbing against the person;
  • Pressure in regards to romantic relationships or to meet coworkers outside of the workplace;
  • Quid quo pro, which is offering job promotions or raises in exchange for sexual favors.

Sexual harassment can occur among both men and women, with the victim being a member of the same or opposite sex. It can also include disparaging comments about someone’s gender or sexual identity. When these situations occur in the workplace, Valiant Law is here to help.  

Taking a Tough Stance on Sexual Harassment

When sexual harassment makes you uncomfortable, creates a hostile work environment, or threatens your career or job prospects, our Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys provide the professional legal guidance you need. In addition to violating federal regulations, this type of behavior is against the law in California.

Employment discrimination and harassment laws are enforced in our state through the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Depending on their size, employers are mandated to provide employee training, which includes management, to prevent sexual harassment from being an issue in the workplace. They must also take swift action in handling any complaints, or they can be legally liable for damages in a sexual harassment claim.
