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.
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:
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.
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.
If you are being subjected to unwanted advance or comments from coworkers are making your job impossible to do, Valiant Law can help determine the options available in your situation. Reach out and contact Los Angeles sexual harassment attorneys to request a confidential consultation today.
