What Counts as Workplace Sexual Harassment?
Experiencing sexual harassment at work can lead to both physical and emotional pain for the victim. At KMD Law, we find this unacceptable. We are willing to do everything in our power to protect our clients who have been harassed, as well as provide the litigation and compensation they are entitled to.
How can you tell if you or a coworker has been sexually harassed? Workplace sexual harassment includes conduct of a sexual nature that offends, distresses, humiliates, or otherwise affects a victim in a way that makes it difficult for him or her to perform their job.
It can consist of, but is not limited to:
- Non-consensual, purposeful physical contact
- Sexually charged or explicit questions and comments
- Leering or ogling
- Jokes or remarks about sex
- Persistently asking someone for a date, sex, or sexual favors
- Bribing someone for a date or sexual favors
- Attempted or actual non-consensual sexual contact
- Sexual contact between an employee and their supervisor
- Sending or displaying unsolicited images of a sexual or explicit nature
How Can I Report Sexual Harassment?
Even one instance of sexual harassment can create a hostile work environment and should therefore be reported as soon as possible. You don’t have to be the victim in order to come forward—California law dictates that any person who witnesses sexual harassment of any kind has a duty to report it.
Both federal and California law protect employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. Such behavior is completely against the law and worth contesting. We have nothing but compassion for our clients, but the opposite is true for those who commit such heinous acts.
