Sexual Harassment and Sexual Assault

You probably go to work every day with the expectation of being treated fairly and with professionalism and respect. When an employer or coworker violates your civil rights by harassing you sexually, few situations can be more traumatizing. Suddenly, your workplace is no longer a place of safety.

If you are a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, you deserve to be represented by a legal professional who has been recognized for exceptional service, extraordinary knowledge, and outstanding legal presence. Never failing to realize that a sexual harassment and sexual assault issue is just as much of an emotional issue as it is a legal issue, we push to pursue the full justice our clients rightfully deserve.

Sexual harassment is a form of illegal harassment and discrimination in the workplace. In the simplest definition, sexual harassment is the unwelcome sexual conduct on the part of an employer, coworker, or client.

Sexual harassment can include many forms of offensive or unwelcome sexual behavior, including the following:

  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual favors
  • Actual or threatened retaliation
  • Leering
  • Displaying sexually suggestive posters, images, or pictures
  • Making derogatory comments, slurs, or jokes
  • Comments about one's body
  • Sexually derogative or degrading words
  • Suggestive, offensive, or obscene letters, notes, or invitations
  • Physical touching or assault

If you are a victim of sexual harassment, you must file a complaint within three years of the harassment. You may be entitled to receive compensation for your damages. We are dedicated to protecting the rights of public and private employees throughout California and we can strive to seek justice on your behalf after such a traumatic incident.
