Remedies for different forms of sexual harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace occurs when an employee is subjected to unwanted advances of a sexual nature, unwanted comments or physical conduct or is requested to perform sexual favors by a supervisor or co-worker. Such conduct constitutes harassment when it affects the victim's employment, creates a hostile or offensive work environment or interferes with their performance.

What constitutes workplace harassment, and who is liable?

Unnecessary conduct, such as offensive comments or jokes, slights and annoying behavior, should not be encouraged in the workplace. However, this type of conduct often occurs. Some employees may be sensitive to this behavior and feel that co-workers or their employer is harassing them as a result. For this reason, many California residents may be curious as to what conduct actually constitutes harassment in the workplace.

California employee receives damages for employer retaliation

Employers that are committing a violation of law may be called out by their employees that observe these actions. The legal violations may concern the environment, treatment of employees, or conduct regarding employee benefit plans. Employees should feel encouraged to make these complaints without worrying about ensuing unfair treatment or retaliation by their employer.

California workers often struggle with wage violations

When a California resident takes a new job he often agrees to do certain occupational tasks in exchange for compensation. That compensation can include wages, job-provided insurance, and other benefits that allow the worker to lead a productive and comfortable life. When his employer fails to provide him with the compensation that he deserves, the worker may feel that his employer is taking advantage of him.

Sexual harassment does not have to be overt to be damaging

Sometimes sexual harassment in the workplace may be easy to spot. The actual touching of another person in an unwanted way can constitute sexual harassment; receiving inappropriate attention of a sexual nature from one's boss or co-workers can also be considered workplace sexual harassment. However, not all forms of sexual harassment are easily apparent. Men and women who work in California often feel the negative impact of subversive or covert sexual harassment even when it is not clearly identifiable or directed at them.
