What Counts as Sexual Harassment in California?
Many people who endure sexual harassment do not realize that it is against the law. You may not even realize that your coworkers’ behavior is sexual harassment. Sexual harassment includes:
- Unwanted romantic or sexual propositions
- Caressing, groping or another inappropriate touching
- Displays of suggestive material such as pornography
- Sexist or sexual slurs and jokes
- Suggestive gestures
- Offers of promotions or other incentives for sexual favors
When you make a consultation with Lawless, Lawless & McGrath, we can discuss your situation, determine whether you have a case and help you decide your next steps.
Retaliation is Against the Law
Many people who blow the whistle on harassment are rewarded not with help, but with disbelief, mocking or retaliation. Some examples of retaliation include:
- Rescinding a job offer or promotion
- Negative performance reviews, even if your work quality is high
- Assigning you to undesirable tasks or shifts
- Lowering or withholding your pay
- Wrongful demotion
- Wrongful termination
We can work to put an end to retaliation, restore your previous job and uphold your rights for the future.
