Sexual harassment is against the law. At The Spivak Law Firm, we make it our business to fight sexual harassment. sexual harassment is by far the most prevalent form of harassment individuals experience in the workplace. Sexual harassment violates the law when it is so severe or constant that it alters the conditions of the victim's employment and creates an abusive working environment.
Sexual harassment is illegal under both federal and California law. Federal law offers protections to employees of companies of 15 or more employees. In California, sexual harassment is prohibited for employers of any size. Sexual harassment takes many forms. Being the butt of sexually-charged jokes or pranks, being grabbed or whistled at, sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or other verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature can qualify as sexual harassment.
Age Discrimination The Age Discrimination in Employment Act: The federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 ("ADEA") protects individuals who are 40 years of age or older from employment discrimination based on age. It applies to employers of 20 or more people. Oftentimes, employers discriminate against older workers because they are believed to be more likely to take medical leaves of absence. The
ADEA can be found at Section 621 of Title 29 of the United States Code. The Fair Employment and Housing Act forbids age discrimination against individuals 40 years of age and older from age-based discrimination. Unlike the ADEA, however, California's age discrimination statutes are to be enforced "with the goal of not only protecting older workers as individuals, but also of protecting older workers as a group, since they face unique obstacles in the later phases of their careers.
