The image of sexual harassment which is commonly portrayed in movies and novels is just the tip of the iceberg, unfortunately for numerous employees across Woodland Hills and surrounding areas. The obvious type of harassment, involving unwanted sexual advances and even sexual assault does feature all too often but is far from being the only way in which this behavior tends to manifest itself. As with various other forms of discrimination and harassment in the workplace, sexual harassment continues to pose a significant problem, despite increased awareness of how damaging it can be, and legislation that was put in place to protect workers from just that.
Perhaps you have been subjected to unwanted sexual advances from a co-worker, offered a pay increase or other benefits in return for performing sexual favors for a manager or supervisor, or forced to work in an environment littered with sexual images and remarks. If sexual behavior, comments, or content in your workplace is making you feel uncomfortable, targeted, or threatened, you should speak to a Woodland Hills sexual harassment attorney immediately to find out how we could help you.
It is not uncommon for victims of sexual harassment to have doubts that they have actually been subjected to unlawful behavior. Perhaps due to pressures from society to view sexual advances as positives, or maybe because of fear of reprisals in the workplace, many victims do not ever report their experiences, never mind bringing a lawsuit. Not only does this leave you open to further sexual harassment, but it also enables the perpetrator to continue treating others in a similar manner.
