Sexual Harassment

Sexual Harassment, Prevention & Resolution

Sexual harassment is a form of unlawful workplace discrimination, singling out individuals due to gender. Management and co-workers are all subject to such prohibition. Unwelcome and inappropriate conduct is illegal whether aimed at men, women, or individuals of the opposite or same sex. Examples include sexual jokes or innuendos, displaying images of a sexual nature, hindering another’s movements, or demanding inappropriate physical contact.

When an employer is charged with sexual harassment, management’s reaction may range from  fear and uncertainty to outrage over dubious charges. Regardless of the claim’s validity, the employer’s response must adhere to federal and state anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation statutes. If not, the company further jeopardizes its legal position.

The California Government Code also makes it unlawful for any California employer “to fail to take all reasonable steps necessary to prevent discrimination and harassment from occurring.” Therefore, an employer must educate its management and workforce on the meaning and scope of harassment laws, issue “zero tolerance” policies, and take to all other common sense measures  to head off and eliminate such practices from the workplace.

This firm’s legal services in workplace harassment matters include:
  • Effective legal counseling and aggressive litigation defense to achieve the favorable resolution of sexual harassment disputes
  • Implementation of sound workplace policies and procedures to safeguard employees and prevent future claims
  • Delivery of highly practical seminars and instruction to increase management and workplace employee awareness and prevention
