Sexual Harassment

Our Sacramento sexual harassment attorneys are available for a free case evaluation

Among the most common worker complaints is sexual harassment. Employers have a duty of care to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. Despite a continuing awareness of the impact of sexual harassment, it still exists in the workplace today. Everyone deserves to work in a safe environment that is free of sexual harassment. Every employee, regardless of their position or role, is covered under federal and California state laws designed to protect victims of sexual harassment.

If you are being sexually harassed at work, suffering in silence is not an option. Workplace sexual harassment is illegal and if you’re experiencing or have experienced sexual harassment, there are laws to protect you. Federal, state and local laws protect employees from:

  • Unwelcome sexual advances
  • Unwanted sexual demands
  • Working in a sexually hostile environment
  • Sexual assault
  • Harassing emails, love letters, and phone calls
  • Stalking

If you believe you have been sexually harassed you should report the conduct to your employer immediately in writing and keep a copy of your notice to the employer and a report of the harassing conduct for your records. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee for bringing a legal claim of sexual harassment.

It is very important for victims of sexual harassment in Sacramento to act immediately due to the stringent time frames that are built into these workplace laws. We are committed to helping you can assist you in evaluating your case.

Retaliation

Our Sacramento employment retaliation lawyers can help you understand your legal rights

Many times, employees hesitate to complain about discrimination or harassment in the workplace because of concerns that their employer may retaliate against them with demotion or even termination. Employees should be free to raise any concern they choose to regarding discriminatory or harassment workplace practices and the law protects those who do.

After an employee reports discrimination, if an employer denies benefits, demotes or even terminates their employee, the employee has the right to file a lawsuit against the employer. Other signs of retaliation may consist of:

  • Unjustifiably reviewing employees negatively
  • Severely reducing your hours
  • Refusing promotion; and/or
  • Creating a hostile work environment

Employee retaliation in Sacramento isn’t just relegated to discrimination and harassment, but also may concern reporting illegal activities. When an employee reports illegal activities to the proper authorities this is known as Whistleblowing, and may experience retaliation from their employer. This could also happen when an employee informs upper management or their human resources department about another employee’s or supervisor’s unethical behavior. It’s important to remember that employees in Sacramento at every level of the organization can be a victim of retaliation.

Retaliation is an unlawful practice for an employer to engage in. The law encourages employees to assert their employment rights when they believe their rights are being violated. However, fighting retaliation in the workplace can be difficult and exhausting. No matter what situation you have found yourself in, you can be confident in our ability to get you the compensation you deserve. If you feel that you have been terminated or deprived benefits because of adverse actions by your employer, you should speak with our Sacramento employment retaliation attorney as soon as possible.

Wrongful Termination

Finding the best Sacramento wrongful termination attorney can be challenging

Finding, pursuing and getting a job can be a time-consuming, costly and often tiring process. Once at your position, your commitment of talent, effort and time is valuable. However, there are many reasons why an employer might terminate an employment agreement with an employee. Some of them are legitimate, involving things like poor work performance, conduct, or illegal activity in the workplace. Other times the reasons may be malicious. California employers are not permitted to terminate their employees due to unlawful reasons.

An employer cannot fire a whistleblower who complained about what is known as a matter of public policy. For instance, a worker in Sacramento cannot be fired because they complained about age discrimination, racial discrimination, or sexual harassment. Nor can a company fire somebody who complained about certain wrongdoing, like dumping toxic chemicals, and workers cannot be fired for reporting a crime.

If you have been terminated from your employment in Sacramento for an unlawful reason which may include discrimination, unlawful activities at the workplace, complaining about workplace safety, you deserve the compensation and justice promised by employment laws. This should be delivered by a skilled, experienced and hardworking employment law and wrongful termination law attorney. Our Sacramento employment law firm investigates your story to find out the underlying facts that show your employer’s motive.

Our Northern California employment lawyers have obtained significant verdicts or settlements in a multitude of noteworthy cases. We are equally committed to ensuring that you are fairly treated and compensated. If you feel your employment termination was illegal, contact us.
