Hostile Work Environment
Southern California Sexual Harassment Attorneys
No one needs to put up with a sexually hostile workplace. If you are the victim of gender-based harassment at work, you may be entitled to compensation, policy changes, and other remedies under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.
Since 1925, the legal team at Spray, Gould & Bowers LLP has represented clients in Orange County and the surrounding areas who have been taken advantage of by other people in the workplace. We are ready to fight for you and urge you to schedule a complimentary and confidential case evaluation with a Southern California sexual harassment attorney at the firm as soon as possible.
Hostile Work Environment Behaviors
Our law firm has successfully represented clients alleging offensive sexual behavior that creates a hostile work environment, such as:
Visual behavior: This can include making sexual gestures or displaying sexually explicit or offensive images, such as pornography in the workplace.
Verbal behavior: This can include offensive comments of a sexual nature, jokes, epithet, slurs, verbal abuse, graphic comments about someone's body parts, or describing someone using sexually degrading words.
Physical behavior: This can include inappropriately touching someone, forcing someone to touch a co-worker in a sexual fashion, assaulting someone or unwanted sexual advances.
If the behavior is isolated or one-time in nature, it may not constitute sexual harassment and it may not rise to a level to create a hostile work environment. However, if the behavior is repeated or is pervasive enough, we may be able to develop a case against your employer. You may also have a case if your employer retaliates against you after you complained of such a work environment.
No one needs to put up with a hostile work environment. A Southern California sexual harassment lawyer at our firm may handle hostile work environment cases on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not have to pay any legal fees unless we successfully recover compensation from your employer. Compensation may include back pay, front pay, policy changes, actual damages, damages for emotional distress, attorney fees, and punitive damages.
