One of the most difficult workplace violations for employees to report is sexual harassment. Since it is such a personal and often intimidating act, many victims remain silent out of fear the offender will retaliate. As a result, sexual harassment often goes unnoticed and unaddressed for very long periods of time. Don’t let this happen to you! Hire an Orange County employment lawyer for legal counsel and representation. If you were sexually harassed at work whether the sexual harassment was verbal harassment or physical harassment.
There is more than one way of harassing a person in a sexual manner. The first that usually come to mind are inappropriate touching or fondling, but harassment comes in many forms, including the following:
What is Sexual Harassment? Sexual Harassment is done by coworkers and customers. If a boss, manager, owner of the business, or supervisor commits the acts of sexual harassment the employer is strictly liable for the sexual harassment. Nonetheless, sexual harassment cases are usually stronger if the employee has complained about sexual harassment to human resources, or management. Our Orange County sexual harassment lawyers have handled all types of sexual harassment done by all levels of employees. We have also handled sexual harassment cases in which women have sexually harassed men, men were sexually harassed by other men, or women sexually harassed other women. Although we have handled gay harassment cases, sometimes sexual harassment is not done for the purpose of sexual gratification. Many sexual harassment scenarios include domination and control.
Wrongful termination can also be based on a form of sexual harassment if the employment termination was done in retaliation for the making of a sexual harassment complaint.
