Was This Sexual Harassment?
If it involves unwanted sexual advances, it is sexual harassment. That might be a coworker asking for sexual favors. That might be your boss making lewd jokes to you. You should always talk to a lawyer if you feel uncomfortable at work. It might not be sexual harassment according to law, but you want to know if it is right away, so you can do something about it.
Get Your Evidence Together
A case is made strong because of two major factors. One, how good your lawyer is. Two, how strong your evidence is. It is essential that you do your job at logging the encounters that you want to make a claim about. Having a log of what your coworkers said to you or how your boss handled it will make your lawyer’s job of defending you that much easier.
For example, if you have a written log of the date, time, place, and person who sexually harassed you, that is vital evidence. Take that log or multiple logs to HR or your supervisor. You can collect copies of the emails you received or the emails you sent out regarding your sexual harassment complaints. From there you will have a paper trail of all the activity you took to combat this sexual harassment.
A California sexual harassment lawyer will use all the evidence you collected to build you a strong case. Your lawyer can do their own investigating based on the evidence that you collected. They will use everything you collected to prove that you are a victim of sexual harassment. Also that your employer did not rectify the situation.
You want to make sure you have a California sexual harassment lawyer on your side who knows how to use this evidence to make your case as strong as possible.
When to See a California Sexual Harassment Lawyer
What you need to do before you can bring a claim depends on what policies there are at work. For example, a girl was at work as a cashier where a male cashier was making suggestive jokes and tickling her which made her uncomfortable. She talked to her supervisor about what could be done. She was informed, however, that she needed to have formally made a complaint before discipline could happen.
You need to find out if there are steps you need to take for action to be taken. A lawyer can help you put together your facts to make you feel more confident bringing your complaint to HR.
If action is not taken, you can go right back to your lawyer to discuss how to start a claim.
Protecting Your Rights
You have a right to NOT be sexually harassed at work. Get all your ducks in a row, if you are going to bring a claim. You may need to get documentation of your complaints. That might include written documentation of what has happened to you.
We will guide you through the steps you need to take. We can also guide you on how to make any further reports about your sexual harassment. It’s probably not something you have had to do before. We know how to navigate these cases and protect your rights.
