Objectified because of their outward appearance, women constantly clock into workplaces where they’re mistreated sexually, albeit by ‘cat calls’ or being ‘felt up’. Equally as enterprising, worthy as leaders and promotable, conservative estimates prove sexual harassment against women is still as alive today as it was 50 years ago. With 75% of all known cases going unreported out of fear of retaliation, the ridiculously high likelihood women of tomorrow are harassed at work suggests more work needs done.
The Kaufman Law Firm, advocates of equal rights and aggressive litigants of sexual harassment claims, have handled many claims where women feared terrible repercussions if they reported unwarranted sexual advances to constituents, supervisors or human resources. We provide an aggressive sexual harassment attorney Thousand Oaks women and men know will fight in their corner until justice is served.
Women who fear approaching immediate supervisors are often of the belief suing companies for sexual harassment will put themselves in trial instead of the perpetrators. This is absolutely false. Sure, there may be extensive media coverage if the corporation is popular, but women should never fear reporting wrongdoing, especially when its sexually inappropriate. Groping, fondling, being sent inappropriate selfies from male coworkers, the list goes on.
One major hitch in getting cases into court may involve whether victim attempted to file, or successfully filed, an internal complaint. Company policy may require such, which is exactly what some women fear. Legally actionable harassment, however, does require proper filing with agencies outside of your attorney; not that victims’ claims are illegitimate unless they follow chain of command, but the more agencies involved in claims, the better off other silent victims may be.

In an EEOC 2015 case study, anywhere between 25% to 85% of women working in America have endured some form of sexual harassment. When a major governing body gives a 60% spread in statistics, it usually means so many cases exists that guessing is their best recourse. That’s up to 9 out of every 10 working women, in some form, are inappropriately touched, talked to (or about) or outright raped. Unacceptable.
