Taking action when sexual harassment occurs

It can be hard to believe that sexual harassment is still an issue in workplaces throughout the country, including in California. But, unfortunately, news coverage of this important issue over the last couple of years has highlighted the fact that, yes, this is a problem that persists in American workplaces. Knowing what to do when you are the victim of sexual harassment at work can be difficult to determine.

Many people decide not to take any action at all when they are the victims of sexual harassment. From a certain standpoint, most of our readers can probably understand where this hesitancy comes from. Victims may feel used, embarrassed or even threatened. However, as we see more news stories about victims of sexual harassment coming forward and reporting this illegal behavior, more people are coming to understand that they can come forward and tell their side of the story too.

When victims decide to take action against sexual harassment in the workplace, they deserve respect and attention - not ridicule or further harassment. Many employers have a process in place to report sexual harassment, but others do not. In some cases, legal action may be necessary.

At our law firm, we do our best to help victims of sexual harassment that occurs in workplaces in California. Now more than ever, victims can feel empowered to come forward and put the perpetrators of sexual harassment in a position to explain their illegal conduct.
