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 Ontario are often required to establish company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. Matters covered by such policies should include contact information used by employees to report incidents, handling procedures for claims, and corrective measures (in the event that a claim turns out to be true).

There are also federal and California laws that have appointed agencies to handle sexual harassment claims. These agencies have authority to investigate an Ontario workplace for the sexual harassment conduct that is alleged in the complaints they receive. 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?

A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and establish without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. Federal investigators are often very overworked. Because of this, working with an Ontario attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
