Sexual Harassment By Your Boss Or Manager

It's a nightmare you thought you'd never have to experience: Your boss or manager has been sexually harassing you, and you are not sure how to stop it without jeopardizing your job or risking other problems. You may be asking yourself:

  • I'm afraid I'll be fired if I say something — who should I talk to?
  • How do I make sure I don't lose my job if I complain?
  • What exactly can a lawyer do for me?
  • What does the law say about my situation?

What Harassment Is

Sexual harassment by a supervisor or manager is indefensible in California, meaning, essentially, that you can win your case if you can prove that the harassment occurred. Illegal harassment can include:

  • Inappropriate touching
  • A boss or business owner asking you for sexual favors
  • A manager asking you out on dates when you have expressed that you are not interested
  • Quid pro quo ("this for that") harassment: a manager offering a promotion, a raise, a bonus or other preferential treatment in exchange for sex
  • Showing inappropriate photos or sending inappropriate texts
  • Your boss asking you about your sex life or repeatedly commenting about your body or appearance

If you have been subjected to sexual harassment by your boss, talk to an experienced attorney. California Employment Counsel, APC, is a firm that can protect your rights, hold the manager accountable and help you put an end to the harassment.
