Sexual Harassment Attorney in San Bernardino
Solely Representing Executives and Employees
Our practice spans the full gamut of employment discrimination with a focus on representing San Bernardino workers who are victims of sexual harassment. Track record speaks for itself – we’ve recovered millions for innocent workers whose civil rights were deprived who did not have a work environment free of harassment and hostility. There are many common culprits in the workplace. Some of these include:
- bosses who pinched certain private areas of the assistant,
- coworkers who displayed offensive and sexual images and repeat derogatory jokes,
- misclassified independent contractors who were really employees who took advantage of women in the workplace, and
- supervisors who took advantage of young workers and then threatened to demote them if they refused to continue trysts and affairs.
These may all rise to the level of sexual harassment contingent on their frequency and severity. Contact our office to discuss whether they did and we will give you our honest assessment.
Laws Protecting San Bernardino Employees from Sexual Harassment
Since 1964, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (“Title VII”) has protected employees from sexual harassment at work. However, over 50 years of required training and education has not prevented the common occurrences of sexual harassment harming many of California’s workers. California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) also prohibits sexual harassment at work and expands to certain employers that are too small for the federal laws’ reach. The government entities that police these areas include the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) and the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (“DFEH”).
The EEOC defines sexual harassment as “Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature…when submission to or rejection of this conduct explicitly or implicitly affects an individual’s employment, unreasonably interferes with an individuals’ work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment.”

Knowledge and Resourcefulness Are Cornerstones of our Practice
Employers may not create an environment that is not secure for a man or a woman. Each employee must be afforded the opportunity to perform his or her work without unjust demands for romantic relationships or communications that interfere with the ability to work. Both the federal Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (“Title VII”) and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace.
Prevailing in California’s court system is contingent on attorney representation, evidence, and the proper implementation of legal strategy. Proper representation achieves maximum results based on the remedies obtained under the Title VII and FEHA. Some of these remedies include lost wages, front pay which is pay that will compensate the employee for lost future earnings that would have been earned if he or she was not harassed, reinstatement to the position, attorney’s fees and court costs. In addition, if we can show that the sexual harassment was willful, then your award may include double wage damages and benefit damages.
