California law defines sexual harassment as any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature, whether they are verbal advances or physical action. Sexual advances, creating a hostile work environment that is blatantly sexual in nature, and sexual advances are some of the more prevalent types of sexual harassment amongst employers.
How does California Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?
First, employers in Lindsay are often required to establish 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 procedure for handling such claims, and the corrective measures for when a claim is proven.
California and federal laws appointed agencies that process claims involving sexual harassment. They have the authority to investigate Lindsay workplaces regarding the conduct alleged in the complaints that have been filed with them. These laws also prohibit employers from firing workers or taking any retaliatory action against workers who have complained of sexual harassment.
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. The federal agencies that handle initial claims of sexual harassment are often understaffed and overworked. Because of this, working with a Lindsay attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
