Sexual Harassment Archives

Understanding sexual harassment law

Sexual harassment in California is a touchy subject that, unfortunately, often remains unaddressed. In the workplace, many men and women experience some sort of inappropriate gestures or remarks that leave them feeling violated and even emotionally traumatized. If left unresolved, such incidents can result in hostile working environments, unfair demotions, and prolonged emotional stress.

Men are objects of sexual harassment too

When people think about the subject of sexual harassment, they often picture women being harassed by men. While sexual harassment toward women is more common, men can also be the object of harassment in the workplace. An increasing number of women are accepting positions in high corporate management, giving them power over many employees and departments. In these roles, women are in a better position to make inappropriate comments and threats to people who they oversee on a regular basis.

When are sexual remarks against the law?

Each day, hard-working people endure various forms of abuse in the workplace. While some are subjected to wage violations or wrongful termination, others experience sexual harassment that leaves them devastated. Whether you work in Los Angeles, California, or another part of the country, it is essential to recognize your rights and address any occurrences of illegal behavior at once. Unfortunately, some victims of sexual harassment choose to remain silent, whether they are scared about the consequences or do not know that any laws were broken.

How to respond to sexual harassement in the workplace

The city of San Diego faces another sexual harassment scandal

It seems like idyllic San Diego is becoming more and more known for the sexual harassment proclivities of its public officials, than its legendary beaches or laid-back atmosphere. The former mayor, Bob Filner, famously departed office under a scandalous cloud of sexual harassment and impropriety. It appears, however, that the City of San Diego still has a few more scandals up its sleeve.

National Park Service plagued by harassment

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee heard testimony last week regarding rampant sexual harassment, abuse, intimidation, and misconduct throughout the National Park Service (NPS). The NPS is the federal authority that manages the nation's federal parks like Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon, and Yosemite.

UC Berkeley chancellor resigns after widespread criticism

UC Berkeley's chancellor resigned last week amid constant criticism from school faculty regarding his handling of several high-profile sexual harassment allegations and a mismanaged budget. Over the past year or so, UC Berkeley has contended with three sexual harassment allegations against three high-powered faculty members. Specifically, faculty members were angered by his allegedly weak responses to the allegations.

California requires employee training on sexual harassment

The workplace is one of the most frequent locations in which sexual harassment occurs. Other than your home, it is the place that you spend the majority of your time. You are entitled to feel safe at your job. Unfortunately, sexual harassment remains a contentious issue. To curb future sexual harassment, California requires all employers to train employees on sexual harassment, its causes, prevention and proper procedures should it occur.
