When Can I Hold My Employer Liable for Sexual Harassment?
If you are the victim of sexual harassment, you should report it to your supervisor or Human Resources Department. If this activity continues despite your complaints, you can take legal action and seek damages for your mistreatment.
Victims of sexual harassment may be eligible to receive compensation for:
- Lost wages
- And emotional suffering
California law demands that an employer take all necessary steps to prevent harassment. If there is no policy or program in place to prevent harassment, a company may be held liable for failing to take steps to prevent harassment.
In California, businesses can be held liable for sexual harassment if:
- The employee involved was a supervisor, manager, owner, or an executive of the company
- The company had actual knowledge of the harassment in cases where the employee was not a supervisor
- An employee reported the harassment to a supervisor and the activity happened again
