San Francisco Workplace Harassment Attorney
Workplace harassment is usually sexual harassment, and it’s illegal. In California, sexual harassment is any harassment based on sex or any harassment of a sexual nature; gender harassment; sexual orientation harassment; and harassment based on pregnancy, childbirth, or related conditions. Sexual harassment by an employer can damage your dignity, destroy your motivation, and threaten your job. If it occurs repeatedly, it may create a hostile work environment for employees. The experienced San Francisco workplace harassment attorneys at Geonetta & Frucht have fifty combined years of experience successfully representing the victims of sexual harassment in negotiations and trials against their employers in the San Francisco Bay Area and across northern California. If you are a victim of harassment at the workplace, call Geonetta & Frucht immediately. Our San Francisco workplace harassment attorneys will help you stop the harassment, and in some cases you may receive compensation.
WHAT THE LAW SAYS
California law specifies that sexual harassment includes unwanted sexual advances; offering employment or benefits in exchange for sexual favors; making sexual gestures; displaying suggestive objects, pictures, cartoons, or posters; making or using derogatory comments, epithets, slurs, or jokes; suggestive or obscene letters, emails, notes, or invitations; using degrading language to describe an individual; and physical touching or assault, including blocking the victim’s movements. If you’re a victim of workplace harassment, a workplace harassment lawyer in our offices may be able to obtain justice for you without the aggravation and time involved in a trial, but if a negotiated settlement isn’t possible, our San Francisco workplace harassment attorneys provide skilled trial representation, and our considerable record of success speaks for itself.
