What is Wrongful Termination and Employment Discrimination?
California law provides that employment is terminable by the employer “at will.” Which means an employer does not need a reason to fire an employee. The exception to this "at will" rule is that an employer cannot terminate you for reasons considered discriminatory.
If you feel wrongfully terminated by your employer, call Leone Law Firm or fill in the Request form for a free consultation.
What is Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is a form of gender discrimination. Sexual harassment laws protect male and female employees. The law defines sexual harassment as unwanted sexual advances or visual, verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature.
The following is a partial list of prohibited sexual harassment behaviors:
Visual conduct: leering, making sexual gestures, displaying of sexually suggestive objects or pictures, cartoons or posters.
Verbal conduct: making or using derogatory comments, epithets, slurs, and jokes.
Verbal abuse of a sexual nature, graphic verbal commentaries about an individual's body, sexually degrading words used to describe an individual.
Physical conduct: touching, assault, impeding or blocking movements.
Offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual favors.
Making or threatening retaliatory action after receiving a negative response to sexual advances.
