Sexual Harassment

Both California and federal law define sexual harassment as unwanted sexual conduct. This includes situations where the employment is conditioned, expressly or impliedly, on the submission to unwelcome sexual advances (quid pro quo harassment), as well as sexual harassment based on a “hostile work environment.” This occurs when the employee’s work environment is made unreasonably hostile and abusive by sexually harassing comments or conduct.
