Fresno Sexual Harassment Lawyer

Seeking Legal Assistance for Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

If you have been a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, it is crucial to have the support of an experienced attorney. Sexual harassment is unlawful, and both employers and fellow employees are prohibited from engaging in such behavior, which can create a hostile work environment.

Sexual harassment encompasses various unwanted actions, including:

  • Sexually explicit visual, verbal, or physical advances
  • Requests or desires for sex based on a person's gender

Examples of behaviors that may indicate sexual harassment include:

  • Retaliation or threats following rejection of sexual advances
  • Offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual acts
  • Physical conduct such as touching, assault, or impeding movement
  • Making derogatory jokes or comments about an individual's body
  • Propositioning for sex

If you have experienced any of the above, we encourage you to reach out to our Fresno sexual harassment attorney for a free case consultation. You can contact us online or call (888) 796-4010.

Determining Employer Liability for Sexual Harassment

If you are a victim of sexual harassment, it is important to report it to your supervisor or the Human Resources Department. If the harassment persists despite your complaints, legal action can be taken to seek compensation for your mistreatment.

Under California law, victims of sexual harassment may be eligible for compensation for lost wages and emotional suffering. Employers are legally obligated to take all necessary measures to prevent harassment. If a company fails to establish policies or programs to prevent harassment, they may be held liable.

In California, businesses can be held liable for sexual harassment if:

  • The perpetrator is a supervisor, manager, owner, or executive of the company
  • The company had actual knowledge of the harassment, even if the perpetrator is not a supervisor
  • An employee reported the harassment to a supervisor, and the harassment persisted
