Sexual Innuendo in the Workplace

Southern California Sexual Harassment Attorney

You may have been advised that, if you are being sexually harassed at work, all you need to do is just tell the abuser to stop harassing you or to quit your job. That, is not always effective, possible, or recommended, however. You have the right to do your job without suffering unwanted physical or verbal harassment, including sexual harassment.

At Spray, Gould & Bowers LLP, we understand the many forms of sexual harassment, what's at stake, and how to legally handle it. Since 1925, our Southern California employment lawyers have been successfully helping individuals to bring claims against harassers and employers, as well as in seeking fair compensation.

What is considered to be "sexual innuendo" in a work environment?

One form of sexual harassment is sexual innuendo. This is using language in a more suggestive, indirect manner rather than directly make sexual remarks. The language hints, or subtly suggests, sexual content without coming right out and saying it. When someone uses this technique and the recipient feels uncomfortable or threatened by it, it can certainly come under the heading of sexual harassment.

Moreover, when it happens on a continuous basis, making the work environment uncomfortable, hostile or sexually charged, the victim should report it to the Human Resources Department or appropriate person in the company. A work environment that includes sexual innuendo on a regular basis can make a victim so uncomfortable that his or her performance begins to suffer.

Fighting Sexual Harassment in Orange County

It is important that, even as you contact our firm for help, you also report sexual harassment to the proper person or department of your employer. Employers are liable for sexual or other types of harassment by their own supervisors or managers, and the person who is directly responsible for the behavior can also be the target of a claim. We offer a confidential and free case evaluation. We will go over the facts and determine if you have a case.

Be assured that we are committed to bringing about justice and, where there are damages, pursuing fair compensation.
