The main concern employees experiencing harassment at the workplace have is whether they will be able keep their jobs if they speak up. Although retaliation for standing up for one’s rights is not allowed, the fear of being fired is very real for anyone who faces sexual harassment at work.
This is why it is crucial to speak to a sexual harassment attorney to get advice as to the best path to stop the unlawful behavior, whether it is quid pro quo harassment or a hostile work environment.
Federal and California employment laws make it illegal for employers to retaliate against employees for bringing claims of sexual harassment or discrimination. We offer advice as to whether you need to work through your own company’s human resources department, file a claim with a government agency such as the EEOC, or file a civil lawsuit. This consultation is absolutely free and confidential, so do not hesitate to contact us to stop the harassment.
Employment law always interested me because it’s a great fight to fight. The employee has an uphill battle to fight against the interests of the employer. The employer has control, generally monetary control. They have a lot more assets than any of our employees do. They also have access to all the documents. They have access to all the witnesses.
If you’re an employee who witnessed sexual harassment in the workplace but you need to keep your job and you need to feed your kids and you need to pay your mortgage, then you’re not going to run out so quickly and stand by the interests of an employee who’s been sexually harassed.
I think the employee needs somebody who’s going to fight that fight, and I like a good fight. We have free consultations with any contact. Our number is (310) 273-3180 or you can contact us through our website at CaliforniaLaborLawAttorney.com. Feel free to call.
