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 common types of sexual harassment amongst employers.
How does California Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?
First, employers in Ukiah are often required to implement 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).
California and federal laws created agencies that process claims involving sexual harassment. They have the authority to investigate Ukiah 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 prove a sexual harassment claim without having any expertise in the applicable areas of law. Federal investigators are often very overworked. Because of this, working with an Ukiah attorney might be the best way to make sure that your claim is processed in a timely manner.
