Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Sexual harassment is an umbrella term that can encompass a multitude of unwanted sexual actions including but not limited to derogatory remarks, requests for sexual favors, unwanted sexual contact, or spreading information about a person sexual activities. Often, a victim of harassment can be made to fear for their job security, especially when direct supervisors or managers are involved. An employee may strongly feel that refusal of sexual advancements will lead to termination. Even in cases where managers are not among the principle instigators, victims may feel that reporting harassment will "rock the boat" and increase the risk of termination.
California employment law protects victims against retaliatory actions. This means that employers cannot take negative actions against you in response to a report or claim of sexual harassment. If you have reason to believe that this may occur, you should contact our Burbank employment law attorneys as soon as possible. Our firm possesses an in-depth knowledge of the laws and regulations specific to sexual harassment and can fight to see that your safety and rights are protected.
