What Is Sexual Harassment?
It can be difficult in some cases to tell whether someone has sexually harassed you. Not all forms of sexual harassment are physical or overt. The incident must have either been isolated and serious or ongoing to the point of creating a hostile or offensive work environment to have a claim. If you suspect you have a sexual harassment case, contact the attorneys at Rose, Klein & Marias LLP for counsel. We can listen to your experience and let you know if we think you have grounds for a civil claim. If so, we can help you with the filing process.

Legal Options for Southern California Sexual Harassment Survivors
From a legal perspective, California is a great place to be an employee. It has some of the strictest employee protection laws, including statutes prohibiting any form of sexual harassment or discrimination. If you suffered sexual harassment at work, you have the right to file a complaint with the company’s Human Resources department as your first line of defense.
If the company fails to remedy the situation, you can take your case to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
