Sexual harassment laws protect employees from unlawful sexual harassment on the basis of their gender or gender identity by employers, co-workers, customers or vendors of the employer. When this right is violated and people become the target of sexual harassment, the impact can be profound, often creating an abusive and intolerable work environment for victims. Our Los Angeles employment attorneys understand how devastating the impacts of sexual harassment can be and are committed to helping the victims:.

When you go to a job or a job interview, you hope to be judged by the quality of your work, instead of your race, your gender, or another immutable factor.

California law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical acts. Sexual advances, creating a hostile work environment that is blatantly sexual in nature, and sexual advances are some of the more common forms of sexual harassment amongst employers. First, employers in Indio are often required to create company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees.
Cases involving discrimination based on sex refer to a denial of civil rights, job opportunities, raise, employment or a demotion or other mistreatment based on the employee's gender. Sexual harassment on the other hand relates to behavior which is inappropriate or offensive by the employer, managers of the employer or even co-workers if employer knows about the behavior and does nothing to stop it. Generally this behavior needs to rise to a level that the employee or a reasonable person would find it offensive; however, it can be as much as lewd comments or inappropriate discussions of sexual nature.
As sexual harassment lawyers in California, we firmly believe that everyone deserves an equal right to feel comfortable at their place of employment. Anybody can be a victim of sexual harassment and it is not something that should be tolerated. Both males and females can be victims of this type of harassment, and both males and females can be the harassers.
