Advocates For Justice And Equality
We help you understand and enforce your rights under California and federal laws, which both define sexual harassment as unwanted sexual conduct of two main types: hostile work environment harassment and quid pro quo harassment.
- Hostile work environment harassment is more frequent. Generally, it occurs when a work environment is made hostile or abusive by sexual misconduct.
- Quid pro quo harassment occurs when employment is expressly or implied to be conditioned on the submission to unwelcome sexual advances (e.g., a supervisor telling you that sexual acts are required if you want to keep your job).
Under California law, harassment includes gender harassment (i.e., conduct that shows hostility based on gender), even if the conduct itself was not sexual. This type of harassment could include a supervisor's hostile comments that "Women do not belong in the workplace," and that "Men should not be nurses," for example.
