Sexual harassment affects not only the productivity of a workplace but can lead to substantial emotional and psychological damage to the victims of the harassment.

We understand that employers in California have a duty to provide a safe and comfortable working environment.

Sexual harassment in the workplace can take different forms:
If your employer fires you or denies benefits based on complaints about sexual harassment, you could have grounds for a lawsuit. When you work with my Los Angeles employment law firm, I will provide candid counsel on your potential options for pursuing legal action. I seek to help you fight back against these forms of abuse and put them behind you.
Many victims of sexual harassment are afraid to take action because they are afraid of retaliation while many others are completely unaware of their rights. Seeking representation from an experienced and knowledgeable legal professional is the first major step to regaining your peace of mind, recovering the compensation you deserve, and putting an end to a toxic working environment.

Despite the advances brought about by the #MeToo Movement over the last few years, it is important to point out that sexual harassment in the workplace is still prevalent. We also want to point out that this type of harassment can happen to anybody, regardless of their gender, sexuality, or gender identity.
A recent NPR study shows that around 40% of all women have experienced sexual harassment in some way inside the workplace. However, sexual harassment that occurs to men is vastly underreported. This type of abuse does occur. Additionally, members of the LGBTQ+ community also suffer from higher rates of sexual harassment than do their heterosexual counterparts. This is particularly true for transgender individuals.
