Woodland Hills Sexual Harassment Lawyers

Aggressive Employee Advocacy from the Law Office of Payab & Associates: (818) 918-5522

Sexual harassment is a serious allegation in the workplace and, if proven, deserves a swift and decisive legal remedy. Too many employers allow this kind of conduct to occur between colleagues or when confronted with sexual harassment complaints, they fail to properly protect their employees. Affected victims not only deserve to have their voices heard in these matters but often have grounds to seek relief from these employers, as well.

The Law Office of Payab & Associates is proud to have represented victims of sexual harassment in the workplace and diligently pursued compensation on their behalf. These claimants often suffer in silence for some time before finally being pushed to take legal action. We have recovered millions in relief for employees who have been wronged by their employers and are ready to assess your claim today.

We're ready to help you take action. Call our office at (818) 918-5522 today to start exploring your sexual harassment claim options.

Defining Sexual Harassment

It is not uncommon for something to be said in a work environment that makes one or more employees uncomfortable. Most often, these incidents are not part of a systemic issue and can be cleared up by superiors who are vigilant about the comfort and safety of their employees.

However, there are employers that either allow sexual harassment to contribute to a hostile working environment OR they themselves engage in harassment. When this occurs, these employers can and should be held accountable for their actions.

Forms of workplace sexual harassment can include:

  • Sexual bribery (or "quid pro quo" harassment): the promise of some professional reward in exchange for sexual behavior, or the threat of punishment such as job termination if this behavior is not performed.
  • Sexual coercion: the promise of punishment in exchange for sexual behavior.
  • Sexual behavior: unwanted sexual advances from superiors or coworkers, either physical or verbal, subtle or overt.
  • Hostile work environment: a work environment where demeaning or confrontational sexual language is regularly used.

If you believe you have been subject to any of these forms of sexual harassment, then the time to discuss your legal options is now. At the Law Office of Payab & Associates, we're ready to stand with you on this matter and develop a thorough, compelling claim that fully outlines the improper actions of your employer.
