It is not uncommon for workers to discriminate against other coworkers if the location is a hotel. There are many different races of people working there, and racial discrimination runs rampant.

You could be targeted while at the front desk or while working in the quieter areas of the hotel.

We will sue The Huntley Hotel for sexual harassment for you and ensure that you are given the maximum compensation. The California Labor Law Employment Attorneys Group has a team of expert The Huntley Hotel discrimination attorneys who can secure you every penny you deserve.
What is sexual harassment?
Sexual harassment is visual or verbal conduct that is sexual in nature and makes an individual uncomfortable due to its severity and pervasiveness. It does not need to be based on any sexual desires. It has been outlawed thanks to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Fair Employment and Housing Act in California. However, despite its illegal nature, it is still a common occurrence.
Sexual harassment can be identified in the following ways:
- You were a victim of some kind of inappropriate touching, such as when a worker groped you, fondled you, held on too long during a hug, requested a massage or gave you one without your consent, felt your private areas, rubbed your butt, and more
- Sexually explicit objects were given to you as gifts, or the coworker had sexually objects on display in his office or in the break room
- You were a victim of sexual molestation (it is false that only minors can be victims of such acts)
- Someone from the hotel sent you inappropriate pictures of themselves engaged in sexual acts, requested nude photos and videos of you, sent you pornographic material, and more
- Someone from the hotel tried to have sexual relations with you, asked you on a date, solicited you for an affair, asked you to have a one night stand, and more
- You were sexually assaulted or physically harmed
- You were a victim of rape
Anyone at work can commit sexual harassment, but the level of power plays a role in the type of harassment that you can identify and sue for, as well as what is more heavily regulated. For example, if a supervisor or coworker at The Huntley Hotel creates a hostile work environment, you can file a The Huntley Hotel sexual harassment lawsuit against the company and individual. Hostile workplace environment harassment cases encompass everything, and can include harassment that is only witnessed; that is, if you were not a direct victim, you can still sue. This is because some individuals have noticeable episodes of trauma or panic attacks when seeing such treatment of others.
On the other hand, if a manager or supervisor at The Huntley Hotel sexually harassed you by proposing employment or promotions in exchange for sexual favors, you could sue for quid pro quo harassment. This is Latin for “this for that.” It involves a manager, supervisor, or other authority figure who holds some degree of control or influence over a subordinate’s job. Therefore, if you do not give in to the requests, you can be punished in some way. You may face a poor performance review, demotion or relegation to a lesser title, reduced salary or docked wages, job reassignment or reassignment to another more inconvenient location, blacklisting in company or field so you cannot be hired anywhere else, forced to work overtime with no pay, and more.
In the extreme case, such as when a worker at The Huntley Hotel harasses you and retaliates against you, you could file a The Huntley Hotel wrongful termination and sexual harassment lawsuit. Too often, workers face retribution for reporting sexual harassment. If The Huntley Hotel wrongfully and illegally fired you after you reported sexual harassment, don’t hesitate to contact a The Huntley Hotel wrongful termination lawyer to fight the retaliation.
Many individuals may not know what constitutes sexual harassment. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to a workplace sexual harassment lawyer for more assistance.
How To File A Sexual Harassment Lawsuit Against The Huntley Hotel
In order to sue The Huntley Hotel for sexual harassment, you must have sufficient evidence on your side. It is generally a good idea to familiarize yourself with the sexual harassment policy first; the more acquainted you are with what is acceptable and illegal, the better prepared you will be. For example, it is required that companies that have more than 50 employees must provide sexual harassment prevention training to supervisors or managers. If these supervisors were not exposed to or given the training, or if the company lied about it, you could hold the business liable.
You should follow these steps to ensure that your claim will be a success:
Keep a journal of the harassment in which you have records of each incident, the dates they occurred, when they happened, who was involved, where they were committed, and more
Inform your boss and HR representative about the harassment and keep all communication, including emails and messages, but be careful; HR will simply take the side of the company and may not do anything to punish the perpetrator
Interview any eyewitnesses or coworkers who saw the harassment or were also harassed by someone at work. You can add their testimonies to your claim. Be aware, though, that many coworkers will avoid giving you any evidence because it could potentially compromise their own careers.
Take as many pictures as you can, acquire surveillance or security footage, and record audio of any conversations that are offensive or harassing.
Report any sexual assault instances to the police so they can launch an investigation, and if you were physically harmed, you should go to the doctor for medical treatment.
Once you have gotten the proof you need, you can call a lawyer with experience in The Huntley Hotel sexual harassment cases. We will file your claim with either the Department of Fair Employment and Housing or the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. It is a wise idea to work with a lawyer who has experience in The Huntley Hotel sexual harassment cases if you do not have any legal experience or if you have not ever negotiated a claim before.
