Sexual Harassment

Sexual Harassment

There are state and federal sexual harassment laws that protect employees from sexual harassment in the workplace. Unfortunately, sexual harassment is a common problem, with employees suffering harassment based on their gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

At Lipeles Law Group, we are dedicated to helping workers in California understand their right to a workplace that is free from sexual harassment. When their rights are violated, often the best course of action is filing a sexual harassment claim against the perpetrator. Such a claim can make a tremendous impact on the victim’s quality of life and sense of justice.

Types of Sexual Harassment Claims We Handle

There are various situations that may constitute sexual harassment in the workplace. Some of the types of sexual harassment claims that we handle at Lipeles Law Group, include:
  • Unwanted sexual advances
  • Making sexual gestures

  • Making lewd comments or sexually explicit jokes
  • Making degrading comments about someone else’s body, appearance, clothing, or sexual activity
