Some Examples of Sexual Harassment
Without a doubt, sexual harassment could be difficult to identify – especially if the harasser apologizes or makes excuses. Consider the following examples of sexual harassment in the workplace:
- While sitting in your office, you open an email to find that a manager sent you inappropriate pictures. After sending the pictures, your manager continuously makes you inappropriate sexual offers.
- During a meeting, your coworkers and your superiors were making jokes at your expense. When you tried to leave the conference room, one of your coworkers groped you.
- When looking in an office closet for new supplies, a manager blocked the exit and tried to have sexual relations with you.
- During an interview for a new job, the interviewing manager begins proposing employment or promotions in exchange for sexual favors.
- While performing your normal job duties, your coworkers start passing around sexually explicit objects and being very inappropriate with them towards you.
Regardless of the specific details of the sexual harassment that you experience, you must always remember one thing.

The Federal and State Laws that Prohibit Sexual Harassment
Are there any laws that protect you if USC wrongfully and illegally fired you after you reported sexual harassment? If you suffered any sort of sexual harassment, you must be aware of the protections granted by both federal and state law. On the federal level, all employees are protected by Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. This employment law is enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). On the state level, employees are protected by the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). This employment law is enforced by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH). Both the EEOC and DFEH enforce laws that protect against sexual harassment; therefore, you have the option of pursuing your claim with either agency. If you would like to learn more about the federal and state laws that prohibit sexual harassment as well as the EEOC and DFEH, do not hesitate to contact our law firm and request to speak with our USC sexual harassment lawyers today.
Sexual Harassment Lawsuit against USC
As mentioned above, you could pursue a charge with the EEOC or DFEH; however, you could also file a sexual harassment lawsuit against your employer. Under certain circumstances, you might even be eligible to participate in a class action lawsuit against USC for sexual harassment. After filing a charge with the EEOC or DFEH, you can pursue a civil lawsuit against your employer. To pursue a civil lawsuit, you will have to receive a right to sue letter from the appropriate employment agency. After receiving the letter, you must seek legal assistance and begin the legal process. Filing a lawsuit will make you eligible to receive compensation. Although filing an independent civil lawsuit is the most common option for most claimants, some situations make it possible to pursue USC sexual harassment class action lawsuits.

Recovering Compensation for Your Claim
Could you receive compensation after you were sexually assaulted and repeatedly sexually harassed in the workplace? Could you receive compensation if you suffered retaliation after reporting the sexual harassment that you suffered? Depending on the details of your claim, you might be eligible to receive compensation for the sexual harassment that you suffered. Although every claim is different, claimants are often eligible to recover compensation for lost income, lost wages, pain/suffering, and punitive damages, for example. In some cases, claimants are even eligible to recover compensation for medical expenses. How much compensation could you receive?
