Sexual Harassment Is Not A "Look The Other Way" Offense

I Help Victims in Los Angeles Stand Up and Take Legal Action

In California, employers have a duty to provide a safe and comfortable working environment. Once a complaint of sexual harassment is made, your employer must undertake all reasonable steps to prevent it. If you are the victim of sexual harassment in Los Angeles or were fired for reporting unwanted sexual advances, you could have a claim.
Every employee deserves to work in a harassment-free environment. My name is Matthew A. Kaufman and as an experienced Los Angeles employment law attorney, I can help you take the appropriate steps to remedy your situation and hold your employer accountable. Here at The Kaufman Law Firm, we utilize an aggressive and comprehensive approach to help victims of sexual harassment in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California. Since 1993, our legal team has worked diligently both in the courtroom and behind the scenes to help place each client in the best position to succeed.

Types Of Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment in the workplace can take different forms:

    • Quid pro quo sexual harassment — “Quid pro quo” is Latin for “this for that.” Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when an employee is asked for sexual favors in return for keeping his or her job or some other benefit, like a promotion.
    • Sexually hostile work environment — In a hostile work environment, the employee is exposed to offensive remarks or behavior on the job such as leering, unwelcome touching, obscene or sexually offensive remarks and other unwanted sexual advances.

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, recover the compensation you deserve and put an end to a toxic working environment.
