Holding The Perpetrators Of Sexual Harassment Accountable

No one should be subjected to sexual harassment in any setting. Sadly, being harassed or even assaulted while trying to earn a living is a reality for many women in Los Angeles and throughout California. In this new era of #MeToo, more people than ever before are coming forward to tell their stories and seek justice for what they have gone through.

Sexual harassment victims and sexual assault survivors in Los Angeles and Southern California can rely on the proven advocates at Makarem & Associates to assert their rights and empower them to move forward. We represent employees who have been harassed or assaulted inside and outside of the workplace.

Legal Protections For Employees

California law protects you from harassment by both supervisors and co-workers in addition to your protections against quid pro quo sexual harassment and hostile work environment by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. This includes harassment in the form of physical conduct as well as verbal harassment. Examples include:

  • Repeated compliments or comments on your appearance
  • Discussing sexual acts in front of you
  • Asking you about your own sex life
  • Making unwanted sexual jokes around you
  • Sending emails or text messages of a sexual nature
  • Touching you without your consent
  • Distributing your private images without your consent

Don’t Suffer In A Hostile Work Environment A Moment Longer

If you are being sexually harassed by a supervisor or co-worker, complain to upper management and voice your concerns. If your employer does not protect you from the harassment or retaliates against you for your complaints, then you may have sexual harassment and discrimination claims against your employer. If your harasser is a supervisor, your employer may be strictly liable for the harassment regardless of any complaint by you.

In any case, your deadline to file a civil complaint may be fast approaching so don’t wait – protect your rights and contact us today for a free and confidential consultation.
