Under ideal circumstances, an individual employee should be judged solely based upon his or her work performance and product. However, in the real world, employees in all industries and at all levels routinely confront discrimination, harassment and hostilities related to their sex, religion, nationality, age, disability and sexual orientation.
Thankfully, employees’ rights to fair and equal treatment are protected under U.S. employment laws and employers and co-workers who disregard these laws can be held accountable for their illegal actions. However, even though anti-discrimination and harassment laws exist, victims of such acts may feel overwhelmed, embarrassed and too scared to seek help and take legal action. This is often especially true in cases involving sexual harassment in the workplace.
Los Angeles area employees who have been the targets of unwanted sexual advances, physical touching and groping or suggestive comments made by a supervisor or co-worker would be wise to report such egregious acts to their company's human resources department. In some cases, additional legal action may be warranted.
