Sexual harassment in the workplace creates a hostile work environment. It often interferes with work performance, and it can lead to missed career opportunities and job loss. Far too many workers deal with sexual harassment by just quitting their jobs, thinking that nothing can be done.
When you are sexually harassed by your supervisor, employer or co-worker, you should consult an experienced employment law attorney immediately. You have rights that deserve to be protected, and you can pursue a damage compensation claim with the help of an attorney.
In many sexual harassment cases, employers can be held strictly liable when appropriate steps were not taken to stop harassment or when a supervisor was the perpetrator of harassment. Call Winer, McKenna & Burritt, LLP, at (510) 433-1000 for a free consultation.
