2 examples of workplace sexual harassment

In fact, thousands of people deal with humiliating situations at their jobs on a daily basis but they never say anything because they're afraid of negative career consequences.

Would hiring more women reduce instances of sexual harassment?

California employers must be careful to hire from both sexes equally. Men and women must receive equal opportunity at the workplace, hiring should not be based on sexual bias and employers cannot make promotion, pay rate or termination decisions based on the sex of an individual. That said, it seems that numerous California workplaces have in unequal number of males in positions of authority -- and men often make more money compared to women performing similar job functions.

Are you being subjected to a hostile work environment?

No matter where you work here in California, there is probably at least one person you find it difficult to work with. Whether you have personality differences or there is something else that makes it challenging to work with him or her, you may find yourself dreading having to interact with that person.

Renowned geneticist resigns after sexual harassment accusations

LGBT persons still face sexual harassment in the workplace

In today's society, you should have the freedom to embrace your sexual orientation.

Governor plans to earmark funds for monitoring sexual harassment

Gov. Jerry Brown has released his budget proposal that offers financing to help fight sexual harassment.

Victims of sexual harassment: Speak up and defend your rights

Sexual harassment continues to pervade society in spite of strict federal and state laws that prevent this abuse.

But is everyone exercising their rights in this regard? Unfortunately, no.

Woman aren't usually accused of sexual harassment

Sexual harassment is usually associated with power-hungry men who are in a position of power. There are very few cases that center around a woman being the aggressor in the case. This happens for a few reason, but it is imperative to remember that women can be the party who is harassing someone else.
