If you feel that you have been the butt of jokes, disturbing comments or offensive e-mails or pictures at work based on qualities you can’t control, you may feel embarrassed, ashamed and even angry. Before you take action, you should seek the guidance of an experienced Santa Monica harassment attorney. We work relentlessly to help you achieve the best possible outcome.
In California, it is illegal to be harassed based on any of the following:
- National origin
- Age: In order to pursue a case for age discrimination or harassment, you must be over the age of 40.
- Sexual orientation, including transgender
All of these qualities are things you cannot control, and you should not be judged or harassed on the basis of any of them. If you feel that you have been harassed at work for any of these reasons, seek legal advice from a lawyer who understands the intricacies and complexities of California employment law.
When an employee reports unlawful harassment, it is important that the employer promptly and thoroughly investigate. Upon concluding the investigation, depending on the findings the company should take immediate and effective action to remedy the problem. When a company fails to do so, employees may need a third party to help ensure their rights are being preserved. As experienced Los Angeles Labor and Employment Attorneys, we can represent the employee when a prompt and thorough investigation was not conducted.
