Fighting to Protect Victims of Workplace Misconduct

Sexual harassment is illegal in the workplace, yet many workers are subjected to it every day. The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) defines sexual harassment as unwanted sexual advances that can include visual, verbal, or physical contact as a result of the desire for sex or due to a person’s gender. No matter who you are, sexual harassment is against employment law. For nearly 20 years, Mark Charles Law has been holding responsible parties accountable for their actions by fighting aggressively to obtain justice. If you have been sexually harassed in the workplace, call our office for a free consultation.

What Is Sexual Harassment?

Feeling safe at work is important. Those who make unwanted sexual advances not only harm your ability to feel safe, but they also harm the workplace environment. It is in the best interests of both you and your employer that these inappropriate behaviors are stopped. You may also be entitled to monetary damages to help recover from lost wages, benefits, and emotional distress as a result of these actions.

Examples of sexual harassment include:

  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Threats after a negative response to sexual advances
  • Leering
  • Sexual gestures
  • Displaying suggestive images
  • Derogatory comments or jokes
  • Verbal commentary about a person’s body
  • Obscene letters, text messages or photographs
  • Physical contact

Types of Sexual Harassment Cases

If you believe you are a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, your first step is to speak with Human Resources about the situation. Make sure to save all documentation. If your employer fails to take action to correct the offending behavior, you may have a legal case.

California law recognizes two different types of sexual harassment:

  • Hostile work environment: An employer knowingly allows a hostile or offensive work environment based on sex and the employee is adversely affected
  • Quid Pro Quo: Sexual favors are demanded by someone in charge, such as a supervisor or a manager, as a condition of employment

Holding Employers Accountable

One notable case our team has handled was with a client who worked at a Fortune 500 company. After suffering through stalking, humiliation, unrelenting phone calls, text messages, and photographs, she was on the verge of quitting. After retaining Mark Charles Law, she properly reported the case to Human Resources and stood up for her rights. Since she was no longer comfortable returning to her job, we worked out a settlement with the company that allowed her to move on with her life.
