Sexual harassment in the workplace is an everyday occurrence in America and can make the work environment a very uncomfortable place to be. In 2004, over 13,000 sexual harassment charges were filed with the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission). Over $37,000,000 was recovered for victims of sexual harassment as a result of those charges. Although most sexual harassment cases deal with men harassing female employees, nearly 15% of those charges were brought about by males, so sexual harassment in the workplace is common for both men and women. If you feel you’ve been a victim of workplace harassment, contact San Diego sexual harassment attorney John Gomez for a free consultation. There is no cost or obligation to you and we will even take your case on a contingency basis, meaning you pay nothing unless we win your case.

What is sexual harassment?

According to the EEOC, sexual harassment is defined as:

“Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature constitutes sexual harassment when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individual’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment”.

Examples of sexual harassment in the workplace include:

  • A superior implying to an employee that they must sleep with him/her to keep a job.
  • An employee shows explicit photos of women to a male co-worker, making that co-worker feel uncomfortable.
  • A receptionist is made to feel uncomfortable by fellow employees who regularly tell sexually explicit jokes.
  • An employee in the workplace grabs and fondles a coworker against her will.
  • A secretary’s coworkers belittle her and refer to her by sexist or demeaning terms.
  • An employee sends emails to co-workers that contain sexually explicit language and pictures.

The examples above are some of the most common illegal workplace practices involving sexual harassment but there are many others that occur on a regular basis.
