Sexual Harassment

Strong Advocates is an employment and civil rights law office located in Los Angeles, California. We work passionately to protect victims of workplace sexual harassment and assault. We win our cases because we go the extra mile for our clients.

All forms of sexual harassment in the workplace are unacceptable. If you are the victim of constant harassment at the workplace, you may wonder about your legal options. You have the right to stop the harassment, and by speaking up, you could protect others who are experiencing the same unlawful and reprehensible treatment.

If you are the victim of sexual harassment in the workplace, please do not feel guilty or ashamed. Do not blame yourself or ignore the behavior. It would also be in your best interest to not handle the situation yourself. Contact Strong Advocates to discuss the facts of your case and take a strong step toward the pursuit of justice.
