There are a few key things to consider when identifying workplace harassment. First, consider whether the behavior is directed at you specifically. If you are being singled out for negative treatment or comments, this may be harassment.
Additionally, consider whether the behavior makes you uncomfortable or creates a hostile work environment. If you feel that you are being harassed, it is important to speak to a California sexual harassment lawyer who can help protect your rights.
To win a sexual harassment claim, or any other type of harassment claim, you should do what you can to take the following steps:
Many people do not know how to react when they encounter harassment at work. You may be tempted to ignore the situation, hoping it will get better on its own. Unfortunately, that rarely works, and your failure to speak up could hurt your claim later.
If you need guidance filing a complaint or taking some other action, a Los Angeles County employment lawyer from our firm will be there for you every step of the way. We can explain the law, your rights, and your options.
Workplace harassment is a form of discrimination that occurs when an employee is subjected to unwelcome comments, conduct, or behavior that is related to their protected characteristic(s). Protected characteristics include race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, childbirth, and related medical conditions), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, genetic information (including family medical history), or sexual orientation.
If you have already complained at work, and the harassment has not stopped, you can contact an experienced employment lawyer. If you believe that you have been the victim of workplace harassment, they can help you file a claim against your employer. An attorney will ask you questions about your complaint and ask for any evidence you may have to prove your claim. Evidence is very important to support this type of employee violation claim.
There are many types of sexual harassment. When an employer or co-worker harasses an employee because of his or her sex, including sexual orientation or gender identity, these are grounds for a sexual harassment claim. It can also describe when a supervisor or owner of a business requests a favor of a sexual nature in exchange for some employment benefit, such as a promotion, pay raise, or other favor.
Under state and federal laws, it is illegal for your employer to fire you if you file a harassment claim against them. However, some employers already engaged in illegal practices may ignore this and choose to retaliate against you. Call us to learn your legal options if you get fired for reporting harassment.
