Many people think of sexual harassment as something that only affects women in the workplace, but men can experience sexual harassment too, regardless of appearance or sexual orientation.

How Do You File A Sexual Harassment Claim?

If you have a case, we can help you accurately file a complaint with the EEOC and the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH).
