California law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical acts. Sexual advances, creating a hostile work environment that is blatantly sexual in nature, and sexual advances are some of the more prevalent forms of sexual harassment amongst employers.

How does California Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, employers in Laguna Beach are often required to formulate company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. These policies may include contact information for an employee to report sexual harassment, the process for handling such claims, and the corrective measures for when a claim is proven.

The laws of the state of California and federal law have both formed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Laguna Beach work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Employers are also barred under these laws from taking action in retaliation against an employee who has claimed sexual harassment, such as firing them or denying them a promotion.

How can a California attorney help?

It can be difficult to both investigate and establish a sexual harassment claim without having any expertise in the applicable areas of law. It's not uncommon for federal investigators to be too overworked to handle individual claims. Thus, hiring an attorney in Laguna Beach can be the safest way to file your claim within the deadlines for sexual harassment claims that California has defined.
