I am Being Sexually Harassed at Work. What Can I Do?
Sexual harassment is often associated with the workplace. If you have been sexually harassed at work, you can file a lawsuit against the harasser, prove that their actions have legally constituted harassment, and seek compensation for the damages inflicted upon you.
There are two primary ways to legally prove that you are a victim of sexual harassment, which are “quid pro quo” and “hostile work environment”. Quid pro quo occurs when a superior demands favors of a sexual nature in return for various benefits, including job security, money and gifts, promotions, and more. A single instance of quid pro quo sexual harassment will lead to liability. To show that there is a hostile environment, a victim of sexual harassment needs to prove that the harassment has been pervasive and severe, and it can either be verbal or physical. You should contact a skilled employee rights lawyer in Los Angeles immediately.
