California Laws for Sexual Harassment at Work 

Sexual harassment in the workplace is prohibited and regulated by federal and state laws to ensure a safe and respectful work environment for all employees.

At the federal level, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination based on sex, including sexual harassment. Under Title VII, employers with 15 or more employees are required to maintain a workplace free from sexual harassment and can be held liable for acts of harassment committed by their employees.

In California, the primary law governing sexual harassment in the workplace is the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). FEHA provides broader protections than Title VII and applies to employers with five or more employees. It prohibits not only sexual harassment but also other forms of harassment based on protected characteristics such as race, religion, disability, and sexual orientation.

FEHA also imposes strict obligations on employers to prevent and address harassment in the workplace, including providing training to employees and supervisors.

In addition to statutory law, relevant case law plays a crucial role in shaping the legal landscape surrounding sexual harassment. Court decisions interpreting Title VII and FEHA establish precedents and clarify the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees in cases of sexual harassment.

What is Considered Workplace Sexual Harassment in California?


In California, sexual harassment is defined in accordance with federal standards established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). This encompasses a wide range of unwelcome behaviors of a sexual nature occurring within the workplace or educational environment.

Here are some common examples:

  • Unwanted Advances: Includes making unwelcome sexual propositions or advances towards an individual.
  • Quid Pro Quo: Offering employment benefits or threats of adverse action in exchange for sexual favors constitutes quid pro quo harassment.
  • Visual Harassment: Such as exposing one’s genitals or performing sexual acts in front of others.
  • Verbal Harassment: Sending sexually explicit messages, making sexually suggestive comments or jokes, or asking invasive personal questions about someone’s sex life.
  • Physical Harassment: Unwanted physical contact, such as touching, groping, or sexual assault.
  • Derogatory Remarks: Making derogatory comments or jokes about an individual’s sexual orientation, anatomy, or gender.
  • Displaying Explicit Material: Includes explicit images, videos, or materials in the workplace.

It’s important to note that sexual harassment hinges on unwelcome conduct, regardless of the perpetrator’s intent. While some instances may be overt, others can be subtle or nuanced, making clear communication of boundaries essential.

Ultimately, it’s best for individuals to feel empowered to speak up if they experience discomfort or harassment in the workplace. 


How to File a Hostile Work Environment Sexual Harassment Claim

Facing sexual harassment at work can be a traumatic experience, but taking action is crucial for your well-being and to ensure such behavior doesn’t continue.

Here are some essential steps to file a claim regarding sexual harassment in your workplace, helping you navigate this challenging process with confidence and clarity: 

  1. Document Incidents: Keep detailed records of any incidents of sexual harassment you experience or witness. Include dates, times, locations, behavior descriptions, and witnesses’ names. Documentation can include emails, texts, memos, or any other relevant communication.
  2. Report to Employer: Many companies have specific procedures in place for reporting harassment. Follow your employer’s policy for reporting such incidents, which may involve submitting a written complaint or discussing the issue with a designated H.R. representative.
  3. File a Complaint with the DFEH or EEOC: If your employer fails to address the issue adequately, you can file a complaint with the DFEH or EEOC.
  4. Seek Legal Representation: Our sexual harassment attorneys offer you essential advice on your rights, help you with the process of filing a complaint with the DFEH or EEOC, and stand by your side every step of the way. We’ll also explore if taking further legal steps, like initiating a civil lawsuit against your employer, is your best course of action.

Proving Sexual Harassment Can Be Difficult

Proving workplace harassment can often feel like navigating a maze without a map, filled with legal complexities and emotional hurdles. Understanding what constitutes compelling evidence and knowing how to effectively compile it are key factors that will guide you through this haunting process: 

  • Maintaining Written Records: These records serve as tangible evidence of the harassment you’ve experienced. This includes preserving emails, text messages, memos, or notes documenting inappropriate behavior. 
  • Seeking Witness Statements: Gather statements from co-workers or other witnesses who have observed the harassment or can provide testimony supporting your claims. Witness statements can corroborate your account and strengthen your case.
  • Collecting Physical Evidence: This may include photographs, recordings, or screenshots that capture the harassing behavior.
  • Documenting Dates and Times: Keep a chronological record of when each incident occurred. Include specific details such as dates, times, locations, and harassment descriptions. This documentation helps establish a clear timeline of events.
  • Describing Emotional Impact: Document how the harassment has affected you emotionally. This may include feelings of distress, anxiety, fear, or humiliation resulting from the harassment.
  • Noting Physical Impact: Record any physical symptoms or health issues you’ve experienced due to the harassment. This could include sleep disturbances, headaches, or changes in appetite.
  • Detailing Professional Impact: Describe any negative impact on your work performance resulting from the harassment. This might include decreased productivity, missed deadlines, or changes in job responsibilities.
