What Is Sexual Harassment?

Both state and federal laws prohibit sexual harassment. It refers to unsolicited sexual conduct, such as lewd comments, physical contact, and requests for sexual favors in situations where the following conditions are met:

  • You make your response to the unwanted advances as a condition of your employment;
  • Your consent to or opposition to the behavior is taken into account in personnel decisions;
  • The conduct unreasonably interferes with your ability to do your job, or creates an intimidating or hostile work environment;
  • You are subjected to sexual displays of offensive material or inappropriate jokes on an ongoing basis.

What Is Sexual Assault?

When you are the victim of purposeful, physical contact that is sexual in nature without your consent, this is referred to as sexual assault. Unwanted sexual touching, rape, and other similar acts are examples of this. If you are drugged, unconscious, or otherwise physically unable to decline a sexual advance, it does not imply consent if you do so passively. You also haven’t given consent if you verbally or physically refuse the advances.

A comparison Of Sexual Harassment And Sexual Assault

Sexual harassment may be prohibited by both the civil and criminal law in certain situations. You may be able to pursue compensation for unlawful sexual harassment under your state or federal civil rights codes.

Sexual assault is defined as a criminal act against another person, regardless of their employment. In the workplace, sexual assault can occur. At their workplaces, it’s conceivable that some people are subjected to sexual harassment and criminal sexual assault.

Laws Regarding Sexual Harassment In Los Angeles

Sexual harassment is a form of unlawful discrimination recognized under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It might take the form of requests for sexual favors, unwelcome sexual advances, and physical or verbal acts that interfere with a person’s ability to work.

Laws Regarding Sexual Assault In Los Angeles

California’s sexual assault, or sexual battery, statutes can be used to prosecute various forms of sexual misconduct. These rules forbid someone from putting their hands on another person’s intimate areas without that individual’s consent. The victim’s “intimate parts,” as defined by California law, are “the sexual organ, anus, groin, or buttocks of any person and the breast of a female.” Rape is defined as nonconsensual sex when sexual assault results in forced intercourse with the victim.

Sexual Harassment Can Be Addressed In Both The Civil And Criminal Justice Systems

Sexual harassment in an organization, while perhaps not surprisingly, can include criminal sexual assault actions, in which case they are reported internally and/or to law enforcement and/or through the civil courts. For example, if someone is raped at work or in school, or in an employment setting (such as by a superior, at a work-related event, or even by a client), this might constitute both criminal conduct and sexual harassment. The administrative and legal investigations can proceed at the same time if sexual harassment is reported both inside the company and to law enforcement. Law enforcement may want the organization to hold off its inquiry until a criminal case has completed its procedure, and criminal defendants will not want to testify on the record in a civil claim before the hearing on the criminal case. However, complainants have a stake in a quick investigation and both businesses and educational institutions must respond to complaints in a timely manner. This is especially true since the investigation may lead to organizational adjustments that will allow students and employees to stay in school or at work without further abuse or harassment. Victims may also require the organization to provide interim housing and safety precautions while the legal process runs its course. There are a variety of methods for integrating criminal and administrative investigations. The campus law enforcement agency in some colleges and universities conducts both criminal and administrative inquiries. Others delay the administration investigation while the criminal case progresses. Some institutions have a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with campus or local law enforcement that sets out the duties and obligations of both systems. In fact, some schools have established an MOU with local law enforcement detailing the responsibilities of a co-investigation. The criminal justice process continues as normal, but university officials are invited to observe interviews or read statements “in real-time.” This method allows victims, witnesses, and respondents to give their main statement once rather than multiple times. The objective is to minimize trauma as well as inconsistencies that might arise from varied interview techniques and the documentation completed by several interviewers. Interagency communication is improved and interim safety measures may be taken more quickly owing to the time it takes for a criminal justice investigation and potential prosecution. However, applying this model necessitates careful planning when tackling a number of complex issues, including confidentiality safeguards and the systems’ varied goals. In certain situations, the questions that must be answered for a criminal versus administrative investigation might differ.

You should consult an attorney for advice regarding your individual situation. We invite you to contact us and welcome your calls or communications. However, contacting us does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please do not send any confidential information to us unless and until an attorney-client relationship has been established, which will be via a signed, written, retainer agreement. This website contains articles and commentary regarding certain jury verdicts. However, a jury verdict often does not reflect the actual amount that a plaintiff receives. Judges often reduce jury awards. Sometimes Judges add attorneys’ fees and other damages to awards. As a result, final awards or settlements, are often for different amounts than the amount awarded by the jury. Many of the jury awards discussed on the website, ended up being dramatically reduced.
