Sexual Harassment Cases: Why You Need an Attorney

On Behalf of | May 29, 2019 | Firm News

If you are an employee who feels like his or her rights have been sexually harassed or assaulted in some way in the workplace, then you need to contact a Del Mar harassment lawyer that specializes in employment law at Ceartas Legal.


Know Your Rights

The first thing you should do if you think you have been the victim of sexual harassment is to know your rights. Sexual harassment in the workplace can take many forms.  For example, California law protects you from: inappropriate sexual advances by a co-worker, unwelcome sexual touching, lewd sexual jokes and conversation, and even persistent staring or leering in a sexual manner.

How Can an Attorney Help?

Not only can an attorney advise you of just what your rights are, but he or she can also help you determine whether or not you have a case against your employer. Some people mistakenly believe that they only have a sexual harassment claim if the person sexually harassing them is a supervisor or higher up in the corporate structure of their employer than they are; however, that is not the case. You do not have to accept sexual harassment from coworkers or even customers or other people who do business with your employer.
