Ex-financial advisor says she was sexually harassed

An ex-Morgan Stanley financial advisor says she was victimized by on-the-job sexual harassment while employed by the investment firm. The woman says that Morgan Stanley wrongfully terminated her after she complained about sexual harassment perpetrated by one of her managers. The manager, she says, asked her to send him a sexually explicit picture of herself.

Hostile work environment and sexual harassment in California

Workers in California have a number of rights, which employers may not violate. One of these rights involves the right to be free of a hostile work environment. Unfortunately, however, hostile work environments -- in which sexual harassment, unwanted touching, unwanted sexual advances, debasing sexual language and/or constant inappropriate comments are the norm -- are not uncommon in our state.

Have any of these sexual harassment scenarios happened to you?

Imagine you start a new job. You have a feeling that the hiring manager may have had a thing for you during the job interview. You felt it at the time, but it was very subtle, needed the job and dismissed it as nothing. However, after several weeks in your new occupation, the subtle thing that was easy to dismiss eventually became a giant elephant in the room.
