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.

If you're experiencing sexual harassment on the job, it might be easy to ignore it and hope it goes away. Sometimes, though it never goes away. Here are some common examples of sexual harassment that many California employees can relate to:

-- The quid pro quo manager: Imagine your manager comes into your office and starts making subtle sexual comments. Eventually, your manager makes the implication that if you perform a sexual favor, or simply go on a date with him or her, that you will receive the promotion you've been trying to get. Worse, your boss might make performing sexual favors a condition of keeping your job, keeping your current number of work hours or keeping your current level of income. This is quid pro quo sexual harassment.

-- The touchy-feely colleague: Have you ever had a colleague come up behind you and start touching you, or start massaging your shoulders? Any kind of unwanted or uninvited touching can be sexual harassment.

-- The bad-mouthed boss: Some workplaces foster a culture of bad-mouthed comments. When those comments are directed at a specific person, and even if they're not directly aimed at one person, they create an environment of sexual harassment that no California employee should ever have to endure.

If you've experienced any of the above sexually harassing behaviors on the job, you should immediately tell the offender to stop and report the behavior to your human resources department or the offender's manager. If the person continues, and your employer does nothing to put a stop to the behavior, the Bononi Law Group, LLP, is available to review your situation and advise you of your legal rights and options.
