Under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, your CA employer may be found liable for sexually harassing you in two distinct ways. The first type is quid pro quo harassment, which occurs when your supervisor demands sexual activity in exchange for some workplace benefit. The second type, which is traditionally referred to as ‘hostile work environment’ harassment, includes unwanted conduct of a sexual nature that is severe and pervasive enough so as to alter a term or condition of your employment or result in the creation of a hostile work environment.
Your employer or a fellow co-worker can commit either type of harassment. Unwanted conduct like sexual comments or gestures that interfere with your ability to do your job can be considered sexual harassment. An experienced employment attorney can help you figure out if you have been sexually harassed at your job. California and federal law protect you against such behavior.
