Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Sexual Abuse Job Lawyer

Sexual harassment is prohibited under California law, but it happens all the time. If you or a loved one was the victim of sexual harassment they need a top sexual harassment lawyer. Although sexual harassment does not have to be based upon sex, it can be unwelcome conduct.  The standard is whether a reasonable person of the victims age, sex, occupation, educational level, and general level in society would consider the conduct offensive (otherwise known as unwelcome). Please read this article if you would like to know how to properly document your sexual harassment case.

Sexual harassment includes unwanted, unwelcome physical, verbal, or visual conduct. Sexual harassment occurs at work. The perpetrators of sexual harassment include bosses, coworkers, customers, managers, owners of the business, supervisors, and vendors. Sexual harassment does not have to be done by a man towards a woman. We have handled many sexual harassment lawsuits in which women have sexually harassed men, other women, and men sexually harassed other men.

Assault, battery, and sexual battery are acts of physical sexual harassment. Lewd comments about people’s bodies or requests for dates or sex are examples of verbal sexual harassment. Because sexual harassment is often done in an attempt to improperly use power it is not necessary that the acts of sexual harassment be done with the intention of obtaining sex from the victim. Leering at somebody’s body parts can also constitute sexual harassment.

Sexual harassment, at work, is prohibited by the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (California Government Code Section 12940, Et. Seq.) and Title VII. These statutes protect against sexual harassment, sexual discrimination, retaliation, and termination. California common law protects against sexual harassment that rises to the level of assault and battery. California Civil Code Section 1708.5 prohibits sexual assault and battery. Several California Penal Codes make assault and battery illegal. 

We have represented employee’s in more than 400 California sexual harassment lawsuits against this state’s largest employers, defended by the most expensive and prestigious employment defense lawyers in California.
