Your Resource For Sexual Harassment Information
Sexual harassment is degrading. In the workplace, it is also illegal under both California and federal law. The goal of this website is to help you understand and enforce your rights under California and federal laws.
There are many types of sexual harassment. Two of the most common are:
- Hostile work environment harassment, which occurs when a work environment is made hostile or abusive by sexual misconduct
- Quid pro quo harassment, which occurs when employment is expressly or implied to be conditioned on the submission to unwelcome sexual advances (for example, a supervisor telling you that sexual acts are required if you want to keep your job)
Under California law, sexual harassment includes gender harassment. Gender harassment is conduct that shows hostility based on gender, even if the conduct itself is not sexual. This type of harassment could include supervisors who make comments such as "Women do not belong in the workplace" or "Men should not be nurses."
