Workplace Harassment

The Nuddleman Law firm zealously prosecutes workplace harassment claims on behalf of employees and defends employers wrongfully accused of workplace harassment.

California law specifically prohibits harassing an individual l based on certain specified characteristics or conduct. Under federal law, harassment is a form of employment discrimination. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, (ADA) and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act are just a few of the statutes that prohibit unlawful harassment by employers, supervisors and co-workers.

Harassment is generally defined as unwelcome conduct that is based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information or other unlawful bases. Harassment is unlawful if putting up with the offensive conduct is a condition of continued employment, or if the conduct is so severe or pervasive to create a hostile work environment.

Not all “toxic workplaces” are necessarily unlawful. The anti-harassment statutes do not create a general civility code. Understanding what does, and what does not, constitute unlawful harassment is a cornerstone to effective representation.
