Sexual harassment is when a person at your workplace, school, or other professional or social setting makes a sexual advance or unwanted comment.
The California Fair Employment and Harassment Act protects employees from covert and overt sexual harassment in the workplace. Other kinds of sexual harassment also include a hostile work environment. This is described as a workplace in which an employee does not feel safe or comfortable working. Recent changes in California law have extended the statute of limitations on workplace sexual harassment claims. Survivors now have three years instead of one year from the date of the last alleged violation to files claims with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing.
Victims of sexual abuse often feel to blame, and can have a difficult time seeking help. There is often shame and guilt, which prevents victims from admitting what happened.
