Sexual harassment in the workplace affects everyone. Whether you are a victim of sexually inappropriate comments or conduct directed at you, or working in an environment where other employees engage in sexually inappropriate comments and behaviors that you find offensive, you have the right to be free from such harassment and to be compensated for any damage such unlawful conduct has caused you. At the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray, we protect the rights of victims of sexual harassment in the workplace. No one should be subject to sexual harassment or a hostile work environment.

California law defines sexual harassment as harassment based on sex or of a sexual nature; gender harassment; and harassment based on pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. Sexual harassment includes many forms of offensive behavior, including harassment of a person who is the same gender as the harasser.Under California law, the following are some examples of sexual harassment:

  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual favors
  • Actual or threatened retaliation for refusing, objecting to or complaining about sexual harassment of one's self or others
  • Leering; making sexual gestures; or displaying sexually suggestive objects, pictures, cartoons or posters
  • Making or using derogatory comments, epithets, slurs or jokes
  • Sexual comments including graphic comments about an individual's body; sexually degrading words to describe an individual; or suggestive or obscene letters, notes or invitations
  • Physical touching or assault, as well as impeding or blocking movements

We understand that sexual harassment is a humiliating experience that can cause the loss of respect, privacy, self-esteem, quality personal and family time, upward mobility or future within a company, and income.
