What is sexual harassment?
In California, sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual advances and requests for sexual favors, whether the advances or requests are motivated by sexual desire. Sexual harassment can be a single severe act, such as a physical assault, or daily offensive comments, jokes, or actions that change your working conditions and make it more challenging to do the job. Sexual harassment often includes the unwelcome or inappropriate promise of rewards in exchange for sexual favors.
In California, sexual harassment is a form of discrimination because of sex. It includes harassment based on gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions.
As the #me-too movement ramps up to fight for justice, definitions of what constitutes unwanted sexual advances or inappropriate behavior continue to change.
If you think you’ve been sexually harassed in the workplace, contact an experienced employment lawyer. We invite you to call us at 888-762-0297 to discuss your situation.

What is sexual harassment and what is not
Sexual harassment may include unwanted sexual advances, offering employment benefits - in exchange for sexual favors, sending you sexually suggestive photos, cartoons, posters, derogatory comments, epithets, slurs, or jokes.
Non-sexual harassment may include any comment, action, or behavior that is threatening, insulting, intimidating, or discriminatory and upsets the workplace environment. It may still be prohibited harassment - just not necessarily sexual harassment.
