Calabasas Sexual Harassment Attorneys

Standing Up for Victims of Workplace Sexual Harassment

While some people think sexual harassment is a thing of the past, unfortunately, it still occurs every day, in every type of workplace and in every industry.

At Caskey & Holzman, we know that sexual harassment impacts not only a person's ability to do his or her job, but it can also cause significant emotional and psychological damage. Our experienced employment law attorneys are here to answer your questions, relieve your stress and provide you with solid legal advice aimed at achieving the maximum amount of compensation available for the harassment you have endured.

Harassment in the workplace may take many forms. California's Fair Employment and Housing Commission defines "harassment" as:

  • verbal harassment, such as epithets, derogatory comments or slurs (or repeated romantic overtures, sexual comments and jokes or prying into one's personal affairs);
  • physical harassment, such as unwanted touching, rubbing against someone, assault and physical interference with movement or work; or
  • visual harassment, such as derogatory cartoons, drawings or posters, lewd gestures or leering.

Following are some realistic examples of workplace sexual harassment:

  • Your boss makes inappropriate sexual comments about your body, which you find highly offensive.
  • A coworker sends you and other office staff members emails containing sexual imagery, which you and others working in the office find offensive.
  • Your manager repeatedly asks you out on a date and will not accept "no" for an answer.
  • Your coworker or supervisor touches you in a sexual manner.
  • Your boss offers you a promotion or another job benefit in exchange for sex.
  • You are demoted or fired for refusing to comply with your manager's sexual advances.
  • You are sexually assaulted in the workplace by a coworker or supervisor.

Same-Sex Harassment Claims: Attorneys Serving Calabasas and Statewide

Sexual harassment doesn't only happen between members of the opposite sex. Men can harass men, and women can harass women too. Unfortunately, employers often dismiss this behavior as horseplay or harmless antics. Even if a person is gay or bisexual, his or her inappropriate actions may still constitute sexual harassment.
