Unwanted Sexual Advances
Southern California Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Has your employer threatened to terminate you unless you provide sexual favors?
Such behavior is prohibited by law and no one needs to tolerate unwanted sexual advances at work. If you have been the victim of unwanted sexual advances on the job anywhere in the Southern California region, a Southern California sexual harassment lawyer at Spray, Gould & Bowers LLP can protect your dignity as well as your career. We strongly advise you to contact our offices to arrange a free case evaluation and, in many instances, a free initial consultation about your situation.
85 Years of Experience Protecting Clients
Since 1925, our firm has successfully represented clients in complex litigation, including employment law cases involving unwanted sexual advances. Each Southern California sexual harassment attorney at our firm has an in-depth understanding of the California Fair Employment and Housing Act and we have represented hundreds of clients throughout the region who were victims of this type of behavior, such as:
- Inappropriately touching someone or making sexual innuendos
- Promises to continue employment in exchange for sex
- Offers for special benefits or a promotion in exchange for sex, also known as quid pro quo
- Threats to fire or demote someone unless they provide sexual favors
Is it only asking for a date, or is it harassment?
A one-time request for a date would not qualify as sexual harassment. However, if the request for sexual favors has been repeated, a Southern California sexual harassment lawyer at our law firm can work to develop a case against your employer. You may also have a case if your employer takes
adverse action against you after you complained about unwelcomed sexual advances.
We are dedicated to helping you obtain as much compensation as possible. The attorneys at our law firm will seek compensation for back pay, front pay, punitive damages, and emotional distress where appropriate.
We build persuasive legal agreements as part of your case against your employer that requires employers to make substantial policy changes so future employees are not victims of sex discrimination and unwanted sexual advances.
Free Case Review and Confidential Initial Consultation
Our law firm handles many workplace sexual harassment cases on a contingency fee basis so you will not owe us anything unless we recover compensation from your employer.
If you have been subjected to unwanted sexual advances at work in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, Riverside, or the surrounding areas, we strongly recommend that you contact our firm in Tustin, California to schedule a free initial case review and confidential consultation.
