Sexually Explicit Email Harassment
Southern California Sexual Harassment Lawyers
If you have been the target of sexually explicit emails at work from anyone you interact with in the workplace, you may be involved in a case of sexual harassment. These types of emails will contain sexually explicit material, including pictures, video clips, images, pornography, or written material. One isolated incident may not be seen as sexual harassment. Repeated incidents of these types of emails, however, can be considered as a viable case of sexual harassment or a
hostile work environment.
If you receive such emails without your consent and find them offensive, you should report the matter to an appropriate person at work so that your employer has the opportunity to take corrective action. If no action is taken or the action does not resolve the issue, you should seek professional legal help from a Southern California sexual harassment lawyer at Spray, Gould & Bowers LLP. Furthermore, if you are subjected to any type of retaliatory action at work for reporting repeated sexually explicit emails, you may have a case which needs to be pursued.
In a free, initial consultation, you can discuss your situation directly with an experienced attorney who can review your case to determine if you have a viable sexual harassment claim. A Southern California sexual harassment attorney can advise you on your legal rights and what should be done to resolve the matter. Under California law, you do not have to put up with any kind of sexual harassment in the workplace and you may seek compensation for damages, including damages for emotional distress and punitive damages.
