Orange County Sexual Harassment Attorneys

Southern California Workplace Harassment Attorneys

It is discouraging to know that employers still think they can get away with sexual harassment in an effort to make a person give up and quit. Your boss knows the rules. If you think you are the victim of sexual harassment, trust your gut. You probably are, and the person engaging in the illegal activity knows it.

The Supreme Court has ruled that sexual harassment is a form of sexual discrimination and, therefore, illegal in the workplace. The time to talk to experienced employment law attorneys is after you first start getting a sense that things just aren't right. The longer you wait to file a formal complaint, the more likely it is your employer will argue that you "enjoyed" or participated in the fun.

Trust Your Instincts - If It Feels Like Discrimination, It Probably Is

Not everything bad that happens on the job is sexual harassment. The fact is, some supervisors and managers simply do not have appropriate communication skills and things often come out in a way they did not intend. But there is a difference between boorish behavior and sexual harassment.

Trial Victory -- Fernandez & Lauby attorneys, Kathy Le and Brian Mankin recently prevailed at trial on an employee’s individual unpaid wage claim in San Bernardino County Superior Court. The employee claimed that he was required to work more than 8 hours per day and/or 40 hours per week, but was only paid for 40 hours per week. He also claimed that he was given inaccurate wage statements. The employer claimed that it did not owe any additional wages. Le and Mankin filed a lawsuit for failure to pay minimum wages and overtime wages, as well as failure to provide breaks and accurate wage statements. Following trial, the court awarded the employee his unpaid wages, interest and various penalties, plus the employer was required to pay approximately $60,000 in attorneys fees and costs to Fernandez & Lauby.
