Sexual HarassmentFor more information about how we can help you, please contact us today.
Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when an employee’s employment is conditioned on the submission to unwelcome sexual advances. Hostile work environment sexual harassment arises whenever unwelcome verbal, physical, or visual conduct of a sexual nature unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment for the employee.
If you are a current employee subjected to sexual harassment, we can help you with making a complaint that will trigger an immediate investigation by your employer. We can work with you through the complaint process to ensure that the harassment stops immediately and that no harassment or retaliation occurs in the future as a result of your complaint.
You should not delay in seeking the advice of an attorney if you experience one of these two things. First, if you are currently suffering at work in a hostile work environment. And second, if you have been fired as a result of making a complaint of harassment. You must timely comply with the procedures of the California Department of Fair Employment & Housing or the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in order to preserve your rights and your ability to file a lawsuit against your employer. There are short statutes of limitation (legal deadlines) that can bar your claims if you do not act promptly. By contacting an attorney as soon as you can, you can meet these strict time limits and comply with procedures.
For Instance, You Should Understand Your Rights
Advantage Law Group has significant experience protecting the rights of employees who have experienced sexual harassment, discrimination, wrongful termination, and other adverse actions based upon their sex. We handle negotiations, mediation and litigation on behalf of employees throughout California.
You may feel like you have no form of recourse; this is not true. Even if we are unable to file a sexual harassment lawsuit on your behalf, we may be able to help in other ways. In some cases, we may be able to negotiate a severance agreement on your behalf. In other cases, we discover the existence of claims wholly unrelated to harassment, such as claims for unpaid overtime resulting from misclassification. If you retain our firm, we will determine what legal recourse you may have and aggressively protect your rights and interests.
For example, Advantage Law Group protects the rights of employees who have experienced sexual harassment including:
- For instance, sexual harassment including quid pro quo, conditions of employment or promotion based on performance of sexual activity, and harassment that contributes to a hostile work environment;
- Additionally, unequal pay for equal work;
- As well as pregnancy discrimination;
- And sexual preference discrimination;
- Lastly, wrongful termination based upon gender or gender roles and/or stereotypes.
