Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Orange County Sexual Harassment Lawyer
Sexual harassment in the workplace is illegal under state and federal laws. If you are a victim of this type of behavior, justice should be pursued.
Sexual harassment in the workplace is becoming more prevalent, according to the Association of Women for Action and Research (AWARE). The association reports that, while both men and women are more likely to be harassed by the opposite sex, harassment by the same sex also occurs. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) received 11,364 charges of sexual harassment in a single recent year, 16.3% of which were filed by males.
Speaking up about the sexual harassment you experienced empowers you, causes the perpetrator to face consequences, and protects future employees. You will be making a tangible difference in your life and to society when you acknowledge and combat sexual harassment.

Victims of Sexual Harassment are Protected Under the Law
It is important to know what to do if you have been a victim of sexual harassment in the workplace. California and federal law protect employees from this type of activity. Sexual harassment claims can involve any or several of the following situations:
- Rude or inappropriate sexual comments
- Fear of retaliation
- Unwelcome sexual advances
- “Quid pro quo” situation in which career advancement is based upon requests for sexual favors
We Represent Plaintiffs In Sexual Harassment Claims
Sexual harassment often boils down to a “he said, she said” scenario. This is because many sexually inappropriate acts happen in the privacy of an office or car. If you don’t have physical proof of the sexual harassment that occurred, you may feel like it will be impossible for you to bring a claim. This is a myth.
At Sessions & Kimball LLP, we understand the burdens required to bring a claim of sexual harassment, so we can help you find different ways to prove your case. Our experienced attorneys can also help you in contacting witnesses who may speak on your behalf. If your case is litigated, we are highly experienced at conducting discovery so that the employer is forced to admit to mistakes and errors.
Don’t let fear stop you from doing the right thing. Sexual harassment affects all walks of life. We have represented restaurant employees, retail clerks, educators, managers, temporary workers, independent contractors, teenagers, grandparents, straight people gay people, men, and women.
Sexual harassment happens. When it does, contact our attorneys so we can analyze your personal situation.
Sexual Harassment Claims Have Special Statutory Deadlines
There are many statutes in place to help sexual harassment victims. The interplay between state and federal law, and case law, can be complex. Many plaintiffs believe they can file a sexual harassment claim within a year of being terminated. This is not always the case. Our attorneys can help you determine the last date of the harassing act, and therefore what relevant deadlines exist.
