Workplace sexual harassment is defined by California and Federal law as any unwanted or unsolicited sexual advances as well as written or verbal communications of a sexual nature. These can be in the form of direct overtures, indirect innuendo, quid pro quo (where the harasser seeks a sexual favor in exchange for an employment benefit or promotion), and/or a sexually pervasive work environment.
If you’re the victim of workplace sexual harassment, you not only dread being at work, but also dread having to wake up and go to work. It is a cloud that hangs over your head and simply put, it is wrong and should not be this way.
Through a workplace sexual harassment lawsuit, you can bring these wrongdoers to light and in many cases hold the employer liable for either having lax harassment policies or failing to properly enforce harassment policies. Even more, if the harasser is in a management position, then you can hold the employer strictly liable for their actions.
