How to Hold Your Employer Accountable

If harassment occurs, an employer may be liable even if management was not aware of the harassment. Employers are strictly liable for harassment by their supervisors or agents. The harasser can be held personally liable for damages. Additionally, Government Code section 12940, subdivision (k), requires an entity to take “all reasonable steps to prevent harassment from occurring.” If an employer has failed to take such preventative measures, that employer can be held liable for the harassment.

Compensation for Sexual Harassment Victims

A victim may be entitled to monetary damages even though no employment opportunity has been denied and there is no actual loss of pay or benefits.

  • Employers must take all reasonable steps to prevent discrimination and harassment from occurring
  • Employers must help ensure a workplace free from sexual harassment by posting in the workplace a poster made available by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.
  • Employers must help ensure a workplace free from sexual harassment by distributing to employees information on sexual harassment.
