Sexual Harassment at the Workplace
Sexual harassment is prohibited under both state and federal law. This does not stop employees from engaging in conduct that is unwelcome and considered sexual harassment.
Every year, hundreds of employees are sexually harassed by their boss, a manager, a supervisor, or even a customer. Typically, the sexual harassment involves a female victim and a male perpetrator.
Forms of Sexual Harassment
For example, a supervisor, manager or employer that requests sexual favor in return for a promotion, raise, or continued employment is a form of sexual harassment. Some other forms of sexual harassment include unwelcome touching, offensive remarks or display of pornographic photographs or videos at the workplace.
Employer Liability of Sexual Harassment
The employer must have knowledge of the sexual harassment. When the perpetrator of the sexual harassment is a non-supervisor employee, the company must have knowledge of the harassment and fail to do something about it before it can be held liable. In this situation, if the sexual harassment is reported to a supervisor, manager or owner, then the company may be liable.
However, when the perpetrator of the sexual harassment is a supervisor, manager or owner, then the employer may be held liable for sexual harassment.
What Can You Do if You Experience Sexual Harassment at Work?
While not a full list of what an employee can do if they were sexually harassed at work, below are some of the options:
- Most companies have an employee handbook that describes the reporting procedures for reporting harassment. The employee handbook may have information about who to report the harassment to and how to report it.
- Once the harassment has been reported in writing, you can save a copy of the report you made.
- You can make another report to a managerial employee or HR if the harassment does not stop.
- Save any information you have regarding the harassment.
- If you are unable to receive help from the employer, contact a Los Angeles employment attorney.
