Sexual Harassment Laws in California

In California, the laws governing sexual harassment are governed by both state as well as federal law. State law includes the Fair Employment and Housing Act, which specifically and clearly prohibits sexual harassment in the workplace. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 also makes harassment based on a person’s gender illegal.

Types of Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

Workplace sexual harassment can take on a number of forms. In the past, sexual harassment was restricted to physical forms of harassment, including touching, holding, pinching, and other such forms of behavior. However, in a modern workplace, harassment doesn’t necessarily have to be physical in nature.

All of the following behaviors can constitute sexual harassment:

  • Obscene gestures
  • Lewd jokes
  • Lewd e-mails
  • Graphic descriptions of sexual acts in front of the person
  • Sexual innuendo
  • Sexual Propositioning
  • Physical harassment like touching and groping
  • Physical assault

All of the above are forms of sexual harassment that are clearly prohibited under the law. In fact, the explosion of social media has massively expanded the ways a sexual predator can harass a victim. Harassment can also occur in schools and colleges; when victims are targeted because of their gender, that makes the learning environment toxic.
