Woman receives damages award in sexual harassment lawsuit

Victims of sexual harassment should be aware that they receive important protections under the law. An employee who worked for a restaurant owned by reality T.V. personality Lisa Vanderpump was recently awarded over $6,000 by a jury because the woman alleged she was forced to quit working at the restaurant because of sexual harassment by one of the assistant managers at the restaurant.

Avoiding sexual harassment in the workplace


In California, most employees are at-will employees. This status limits the amount of protections that an employee is entitled to in the workplace. However, federal and state law has set some rules when it comes to acceptable treatment of employees. Employers do not have free reign to treat employees however they like.

Despite what some employers may think, all employers in California have some responsibilities to keep their employees safe. Under California and federal employment laws, employers must not only keep their employees safe from physical harm but they have the responsibility to protect employees from harassment in the workplace. In other words, employers cannot just sit idly by as employees suffer from harassment.
