Can I Be Fired if I Report Sexual Harassment at Work?

Southern California Sexual Harassment Attorneys

You may be reluctant to make a complaint about sexual harassment at work for fear of losing your job, being demoted, transferred, or otherwise retaliated against. In any case of workplace sexual harassment, you should let your employer know, whether through a supervisor, the human resources department, or some other authorized person, that the situation exists. Your complaint should be kept confidential and your rights protected by these personnel. You should not be the target of any type of employment retaliation for exercising your rights. If you are, you may have a legal case against your employer under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, which was passed to protect you against retaliation in these matters.

Your Right to Legal Protection under California Law

If you have been the target of any kind of retaliation for reporting sexual harassment or any other type of discriminatory or illegal behavior in the workplace, you should contact Spray, Gould & Bowers LLP to schedule a free, initial consultation with a Southern California sexual harassment attorney as soon as possible. For more than 85 years, our firm has effectively represented clients from Orange County and San Diego to Los Angeles and the Riverside areas in employment law and sexual harassment cases. We handle many cases on a contingency basis, meaning you are not responsible for legal fees unless we are successful in recovering compensation from your employer. In these types of cases, the compensation that may be obtained includes front pay, back pay, policy changes, actual damages, damages for emotional distress, and punitive damages.

It is illegal and unnecessary to be intimidated by retaliatory measures for speaking up about sexual harassment in the workplace. Let a Southern California sexual harassment lawyer at our firm put his extensive knowledge and experience to work for you.

Contact a Southern California sexual harassment attorney at the firm if you are afraid of retaliation at work for making complaints about sexual harassment.
