San Bernardino Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Sexual harassment is still a serious problem in many workplaces, both large and small. Indeed, our sexual harassment law firm has also seen an increase in claims of sexual harassment in this county. Even large corporate employers, such as warehouses and distribution centers, often ignore their own policies against preventing or stopping sexual harassment and fail to take appropriate action against the perpetrators.
The San Bernardino sexual harassment attorneys at Broslavsky & Weinman, LLP have a proven track record of successfully assisting San Bernardino residents in pursuing these claims. We have taken on San Bernardino employers of all sizes and across many industries, and have helped numerous victims of sexual harassment obtain substantial recovery and hold employers and harassers accountable.
While harassment is never tolerable, sexual harassment in the workplace can be especially difficult, as it impacts the individual being harassed, creates intolerable working conditions and threatens the livelihood of the individual. Pursuing claims for sexual harassment can prevent others from experiencing similar harms and often helps provide victims of harassment with closure.
What is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment comes in many forms, including the following examples:
- Unwanted touching, physical conduct or interference with an employee’s ability to move
- Unwelcome sexual advances or invitations
- Leering, obscene or offensive body language, or displaying graphics pictures or images
- Sexual comments, innuendo, and jokes, or remarks about a person’s appearance or body
- Making employment or job benefits conditional on sexual favors
- Threats or retaliation for turning down sexual advances
How to Deal With Sexual Harassment?
Employees may often feel uncomfortable reporting the harassment out of fear of losing their job or being retaliated against. Complaints to the employer are not always required to bring a claim of sexual harassment, and many individuals pursue valid claims even without reporting them.
If the employer, however, is notified of sexual harassment but fails to take an effective action, an employee’s case is often made stronger by the employer’s failure to stop the harassment. Employers who go as far as to retaliate against individuals for reporting sexual harassment are in violation of additional laws, and employees who have been retaliated against have additional claims.
Whether or not an employee chooses to report sexual harassment, employees who believe they have a claim are encouraged to speak with an experienced sexual harassment attorney in San Bernardino.
