The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) provides employees with protection from harassment of various types such as gender, disability, pregnancy, age, race, and sexual harassment. Harassment can be both in the form of physical gestures and touching or it can be purely verbal. Employers are required to take certain and specific action in the event that they knew or should have known that the harassment was occurring in the workplace.
An employee or job applicant can file a claim for harassment with the FEHA within one year of the harassment. The FEHA will subsequently investigate the complaint and the employee’s accusations of harassment.
Sexual Harassment is one of the most complex issues in employment law. There are two main types of sexual harassment claims which are both frequently adjudicated:
Sexual harassment can occur in numerous contexts and can therefore be quite confusing. Employees can be harassed by someone from the same sex or opposite sex. Additionally, sexual harassment can occur between two employees or it can occur between an employee and a supervisor. Supervisors are acting agents of the company and can therefore subject the employer to liability based on their actions. Moreover, employers can be held liable for actions which occur in the workplace even if they don’t know about it.
There are numerous obligations employers must take in order to prevent sexual harassment in the workplace. Generally, under the FEHA, employers are required to take all reasonable steps to prevent both harassment and discrimination from occurring in the workplace.
