Many of our clients do not initially realize that inappropriate gestures may constitute sexual harassment. However, such gestures of a sexual nature are one of the key factors that can create a hostile work environment in any industry.
A hostile work environment causes decreased work performance as a result of intimidating, abusive or offensive actions. Whether a co-worker, supervisor or employer uses obscene or offensive gestures as harassment toward you or another co-worker, you should speak with our California lawyers about your legal options.
At Winer, Burritt & Scott, we protect workers by taking necessary legal action to halt sexual harassment and build strong cases on behalf of our clients. Being the subject of sexual harassment in the workplace can have far greater impacts than day-to-day humiliation. Damages to your personal dignity, emotional distress, decreased pay and reduced opportunities at work can all result from sexual harassment whether it occurs once or is repetitive. You may be able to seek monetary compensation for all of these damages.
