The law prohibits sex discrimination at work, and as part of sex discrimination, laws also prohibit sexual harassment. Unfortunately, sexual harassment remains a major issue for many employees in all types of workplaces - large or small. Each experience of sexual harassment can be unique, with many different types of conduct involved. One thing they have in common is that sexual harassment at work is against the law, and employees have the right to stand up for themselves when this occurs.

We know how much is at stake when you experience sexual harassment, and how conduct beyond your control can affect your career and your emotional well-being.

Quid Pro Quo
One type of sexual harassment is referred to as “quid pro quo” harassment. This means that someone in authority at your workplace bases your continued employment on your agreement to engage in sexual conduct. This can involve sexual advances by a supervisor who then does one of the following:
- Threatens your job if you do not engage in sexual conduct
- Promises job benefits if you do engage in sexual conduct
This is a situation that no employee should ever face, and you should never feel this type of pressure to choose between your job and unwanted sexual advances. If this happens to you at work, you need legal help you can trust right away.
Hostile Work Environment
All forms of sexual harassment in the workplace are against the law, though the most common form is harassment that creates a hostile work environment. A hostile work environment is one that a reasonable person would find difficult or uncomfortable for work. No one should have to deal with a hostile work environment, and it often leads victims of harassment to quit if their employer does nothing to stop the situation.
If you are experiencing a hostile work environment due to sexual harassment, you have the right to stand up and take legal action. You need the right California employment lawyer on your side, so please contact the Eghbali Firm for free today.
What Creates a Hostile Work Environment?
Sexual harassment can take many forms, including sexually offensive touching, comments, jokes, pictures, stories, advances, or other conduct from someone you work with. An isolated comment or incident is generally not enough to create a hostile work environment, though it can do so in certain circumstances.
- Conduct that is persistent over a period of time
- Isolated conduct that is highly offensive
You should always report incidents of sexual harassment to your employer as soon as possible. There are laws prohibiting your employer from retailing against you for a complaint, as well as requiring the employer to take necessary action to stop the harassment. If your employer fails to stop the conduct or retaliates against you in anyway, you should discuss the matter with our employment lawyers at The Eghbali Firm as soon as you can. We can evaluate your situation and stand up for your rights against sexual harassment.
