Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Sexual Harassment is a Serious Matter
Employees, both male and female, have the right to be in a workplace free of sexual harassment. Harassment of a sexual nature makes victims feel uncomfortable and insecure. And in today’s tech-savvy world, harassment may come in a variety of forms – from social media shaming to emails containing dirty jokes and images. If you have been sexually harassed, take action immediately. Call and we will arrange a free consultation with one of our experienced sexual harassment lawyers.
Know Your Legal Rights
Sexual harassment laws offer strong protection for employees. The Fair Employment and Housing Action (FEHA), expressly prohibits sexual harassment, while Title VII of the federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes discrimination on the basis of a person’s sex unlawful. Your attorney will cite specific examples of how your rights have been violated and recommend the best course of action for a claim.
Victims may obtain compensation for losses suffered as a result of:
- Mental anguish
- Loss of income
Don’t be afraid to fight back. In fact, contact us as soon as you feel your rights have been violated. The law gives you 180 days to file a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and one year to file a charge with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing. Give your lawyer enough time to investigate your claim, formulate a strong strategy, and file the paperwork.
