Do not stand for sexual harassment

You Have Rights As A Worker. I Will Help Protect Them.
The Kaufman Law FirmAugust 3, 2017Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment is unacceptable in any area of life and the workplace is no exception. You have the right to fair treatment and you should not have to suffer a hostile work environment. Sadly, many workers in California experience sexual abuse and harassment from colleagues or superiors every day. So prevalent is the problem that, as we saw previously, California’s governor has signed a bill to protect farmworkers from this type of mistreatment.

Unfortunately, it is an issue that spans every industry and can affect both men and women. Whether it takes the form of inappropriate comments, unwanted physical contact or being treated differently to other employees, it is simply not acceptable. However, it can also be daunting to confront or report those responsible for such behavior. You may be worried about losing your job or you could worry that no one will believe you.

Whatever your concern, there is support available and no one should have to go through this alone. If you feel that you are being harassed or abused at work, it is important to report it as soon as possible. This can help to protect not only yourself but future employees who may find themselves in a similar position. Furthermore, once one person comes forward, it can give others the courage to do the same.

Sexual harassment can have a lasting effect on anyone who experiences it, but there may be a light at the end of the tunnel. By challenging those responsible and standing up for your rights, you can break out of this unpleasant cycle and seek justice for your mistreatment. Our page on harassment in the workplace has more detailed information on the steps you can take if faced with this unpleasant treatment at work.
