There are two types of sexual harassment:
- Quid Pro Quo
- Hostile Work Environment
Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment involves a situation similar to the scenario described above where your boss or a supervisor conditions your continued employment on your acceptance of his touching you, sexual advances, or other similar conduct.
Hostile Work Environment Sexual Harassment involves a situation where someone in your workplace has made sexual comments, touched you, or other similar conduct that a reasonable person in your situation would find offensive. This could involve sexually suggestive language, jokes, text messages, photographs, or other similar content.
Under California law, employers must provide a safe work environment that is free from sexual harassment. Additionally, it is illegal for employers to retaliate against you because you reported sexual harassment.

An example of Sexual Harassment
Your boss asks you to stay late after work on a special project. It is getting late into the evening and he suggests that maybe he buy you dinner for all of your hard work. During dinner, he compliments you on your job performance. After a glass of wine, he moves the conversation into how you may move up in the company. He touches your leg under the table and suggests to you that he can help you move up in the company.
A couple of late nights and dinners with your boss and he starts to make it clear that in order for you to “make it here in the company,” you need to show him some appreciation.
After one of the dinners, he says that he needs to stop somewhere on the way back to the office. He stops at a company loft and invites you to go up with him. Once in the loft, he pushes you down on a couch and he says to you that now is the time to show your appreciation. You feel pressured into having sex with him because you really need this job. This goes on for months until you tell him that you don’t want to do this anymore. He then ignores you at the office.
A week later you receive notice that you are terminated.
Unfortunately, this is a factual scenario that goes on all too often in companies across the State of California and the country. Sexual Harassment is a way for a supervisor or a co-worker to exercise power and control over you. It is a form of sex discrimination under California law that is strictly prohibited.
