Even being told offensive jokes, being ridiculed, and having people use slurs against you is harassment and illegal in the workplace. This creates a hostile work environment for people. Here are some common examples of workplace harassment that our California employment law attorneys have handled:

Gender or Sex
Under the Equal Pay Act of 1963, employers are prohibited from discriminating on the basis of an employee’s gender or sex in the payment of wages. It is illegal for employees of different sexes with the same skills and experience to be denied equal compensation for performing substantially equal work in the same establishment. However, sex discrimination is not limited to equal pay. Some other examples of gender or sex discrimination include:


An applicant with excellent credentials and qualifications is denied employment based on sex.


A female employee is let go due to “cutbacks,” while a male employee with less seniority remains employed.


A female employee who has been with a company for a long time is passed over for a promotion for a male with less experience.


Requiring female employees to use sick and vacation days for maternity leave while offering long-term disability plans for male employees who sustain an injury.

Training Opportunities

Sending employees of only one sex for special training sessions that are developed to enhance job performance.

Job Classification

The female employee was denied the right to a title that would typically be given to a man with the same responsibilities; compensation is often adjusted by job classification.
Family and Medical


The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) of 1993 mandates that covered employers offer as many as 12 weeks of unpaid leave without jeopardizing the job status of eligible employees for various family and individual medical situations. These medical situations include pregnancy and care for a newborn, placement with the employee of a child for adoption or foster care, care for an immediate family member with a serious health condition, and the employee’s own serious health condition. The FMLA allows employees to leave temporarily or work a less stressful schedule, depending on the severity of the circumstances.

Have you or a close family member experienced a medical situation that requires leave or intermittent work for an extended period of time? If you need time off or have been discriminated against for a request under the FMLA, an employment attorney may be able to help assert your rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act.
