What Are the Most Common Examples of Workplace Harassment?
The following forms of harassment in the workplace can be grounds for a lawsuit:
- Unwelcome comments or demeaning behavior related to a person's race, color, or national origin
- Unwelcomed comments or behavior that is sexual in nature or related to a person’s gender
- Unwanted physical contact in the workplace
- Derogatory jokes, racial slurs, personal insults, and expressions of disgust or intolerance toward people belonging to a protected class
- Making threats or displaying discriminatory symbols to intimidate employees
- Initiating unwanted discussions or making demeaning comments about an employee’s religion
- Using derogatory language, homophobic slurs, or making disparaging remarks about someone's perceived sexual orientation or gender identity
- Making age-related jokes or mistreating older employees
How To Report Workplace Harassment
Although harassment in the workplace is illegal, many employees are afraid to report it because they worry about losing their job or that they might experience retaliation from their employers.
However, not only is it illegal for employers in California to retaliate against employees for reporting harassment and other workplace violations, but they must also take action to remedy the situation if an employee reports harassment in good faith.
If the employer fails to address sexual harassment that occurs in the workplace, they can face a lawsuit and the employee who was wronged can be eligible for compensation.
