Sexual harassment can be physical, verbal or visual. It is any form of unwelcome behavior and while most people think of unwanted physical behavior when they think of sexual harassment, it can happen in many different forms as well. Take the following example for instance.
A woman works at a clothing company where it is company tradition to post photos of nude women on a designated wall of the office. At first the employee is not bothered by the images since she works in an office separated from the room they are displayed in. However, one day she is transferred to a desk facing the wall, making it impossible for her to avoid seeing the nude photos. As time goes on the images on the wall begin to make her feel uncomfortable, as the photos are often pornographic and portray women as sexual objects. The woman seeks the advice of a sexual harassment attorney Riverside and of a sexual harassment attorney San Bernardino on what actions to take first. Both advise her to first ask her supervisor to take down the photos. When the woman asks her supervisor to move her back to the old office or to take the photos off the wall, she is fired within a week.
If this case is similar to something you have or are currently experiencing at the workplace, make sure to contact your wrongful termination lawyers in Riverside or San Bernardino immediately. They will be happy to answer any questions you may have and help you seek the justice you deserve.
