What Is Sexual Harassment?
The behaviors that collectively define sexual harassment don’t all look alike. For one, not all of them are physical – if someone is engaging in non-physical forms of sexual harassment, they can be held accountable for their actions as much as if they interacted with their victim’s body.
Common forms of sexual harassment at work can comprise of the following:
- Unwanted touching of any kind and anywhere on someone else’s body
- Unwanted comments about someone else’s body or appearance
- Inappropriate remarks about someone’s real or perceived sexual activity or orientation
- Quid pro quo, or asking for sexual favors in exchange for career advancement or perks
- Making physical or verbal sexual advances and/or propositions
- The display of sexually suggestive or explicit imagery, including photos and drawings
- Making sexually suggestive gestures
- Leering, watching, stalking, and blocking someone’s path
- Sending links to pornographic websites or content
- Mistreating someone who does not conform to the offender’s views on gender
Any of these behaviors and many more can become instances of sexual harassment regardless of the sexual orientation or gender identity of the involved parties.

It’s Your Company’s Responsibility to Act
When you report sexual harassment to your employer, they are legally required to act in a manner that corrects the problem. When a company fails in its legal duty to keep a workplace free from sexual harassment, seek help from a sexual harassment attorney in Santa Ana.
Before you can sue for fair and just compensation, you will first need your attorney’s help to petition the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or California’s equivalent entity for permission to sue. The EEOC will conduct an investigation into your claim to find evidence of sexual harassment and failed attempts to resolve this issue. If satisfied with your claim, you will be granted permission to file a lawsuit against your employer.
