California Sexual Harassment Attorneys in Long Beach
Sexual harassment is one of the most common forms of workplace harassment. Though the stereotypical case of sexual harassment involves a man harassing a woman, the situation can be reversed, impacting and rendering the male a victim. Also, California law provides specific prohibitions against same-sex harassment.
Our legal team at the office of Andrea Cook & Associates is committed to aggressively seeking an end to the sexual harassment you are experiencing. We have handled a vast array of sexual harassment cases throughout our years of practice. Examples of sexual harassment include (but are far from limited to) the following:
• Unwelcome sexual propositions or marriage proposals
• Unwelcome hugging, kissing, or other offensive physical contact of a sexual nature
• Unwelcome lewd gestures, remarks, or innuendoes
• Unwelcome discussions of sexual practices or anatomy
• Unwelcome sexually offensive posters, photographs, drawings, cartoons, jokes, stories, nicknames
• Unwelcome comments about appearance
• Comments or jokes that are gender specific
Although these situations constitute sexual harassment, one isolated or stray comment may not be enough to construct and file a sexual harassment case. Our practice is dedicated to assisting clients who have experienced ongoing harassment in the workplace. Courts and juries must decide whether the conduct is both objectionable to a reasonable person and so widespread or frequent so as to be considered pervasive.
