What is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment is harassment directed at a person because of their sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation. The conduct does not have to be sexual but it must be unwelcome conduct directed at a person based on their sex, gender identity, or sexual orientation. Conduct that may be considered sexual harassment includes:

  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Requests for sexual favors
  • Derogatory comments
  • Derogatory cartoons, posters, drawings, or email threads
  • Physical interference with a person’s work or movement
  • Assault

Federal and state laws prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace. Sexual harassment can make the work place unbearable for a victim and create a hostile work environment. In California, a person who witnesses sexual harassment can make a claim even though the harassment was not directed at them.

Laws Against Sexual Harassment

Workers in California are protected by federal and state laws that prohibit sexual harassment. At the federal level, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects workers against sexual harassment and applies to businesses with more than 15 employees. California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) gives broader protection to workers in California because it applies to employers regardless of how many employees they have.

To successfully make a claim for sexual harassment, the conduct complained of must be sufficiently severe or pervasive such that it alters the conditions of the claimant’s work environment and creates a hostile workplace. In some cases, a single severe incident may amount to sexual harassment. Whether conduct amounts to sexual harassment or not is a matter of law. If you are experiencing unwelcome sex-based conduct in the workplace, you should speak with an experienced Los Angeles sexual harassment lawyer to evaluate your case.
