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.
