Hollister Employment Lawyer for Sexual Harassment
What is considered sexual harassment?
It is illegal for an employer or a fellow employee to sexually harass you
and create a hostile work environment. Sexual harassment can also involve
any unwanted sexually explicit visual, verbal, or physical advances. It
can also include a desire for sex or requests for sex because of a person's gender.
Specific examples of behaviors which could indicate sexual harassment include:
- Making or threatening reprisals after a negative response to sexual advances
- Offering employment benefits for sexual acts
- Physical conduct (including touching, assault or blocking movements)
- Making derogatory jokes
- Sexual commentaries about an individual's body
- Propositioning sex

When can I hold my employer liable?
If you are the victim of sexual harassment, you should report it to your
supervisor or Human Resources Department. If this activity continues despite
your complaints, you can take legal action and seek damages for your mistreatment.
Victims of sexual harassment may be eligible to receive compensation for
lost wages and emotional suffering. California law demands that an employer
take all necessary steps to prevent harassment. If there is no policy
or program in place to prevent harassment, a company may be held liable
for failing to take steps to prevent harassment.
In California, businesses can be held liable for sexual harassment if:
- The employee involved was a supervisor, manager, owner, or an executive
of the company.
- The company had actual knowledge of the harassment in cases where the employee
was not a supervisor.
- An employee reported the harassment to a supervisor and the activity happened again
