Sexual harassment in the workplace affects everyone. Whether you are a victim of sexually inappropriate comments or conduct directed at you, or working in an environment where other employees engage in sexually inappropriate comments and behaviors that you find offensive, you have the right to be free from such harassment and to be compensated for any damage such unlawful conduct has caused you. At the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray, we protect the rights of victims of sexual harassment in the workplace. No one should be subject to sexual harassment or a hostile work environment.
California law defines sexual harassment as harassment based on sex or of a sexual nature; gender harassment; and harassment based on pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. Sexual harassment includes many forms of offensive behavior, including harassment of a person who is the same gender as the harasser.Under California law, the following are some examples of sexual harassment:
- Unwanted sexual advances
- Offering employment benefits in exchange for sexual favors
- Actual or threatened retaliation for refusing, objecting to or complaining about sexual harassment of one’s self or others
- Leering; making sexual gestures; or displaying sexually suggestive objects, pictures, cartoons or posters
- Making or using derogatory comments, epithets, slurs or jokes
- Sexual comments including graphic comments about an individual’s body; sexually degrading words to describe an individual; or suggestive or obscene letters, notes or invitations
- Physical touching or assault, as well as impeding or blocking movements
We understand that sexual harassment is a humiliating experience that can cause the loss of respect, privacy, self-esteem, quality personal and family time, upward mobility or future within a company, and income. If we accept your case, our team of lawyers will prepare and steer you away from the litigation minefields that your employer’s attorneys will unfairly set. Our assertive litigation style, mastery of the law, reputation and success often results in pre-trial settlements which are financially and emotionally beneficial to you. Should pre-trial settlement be an impractical alternative, we will be equally vigilant in preparing for and trying your case with one goal only: Winning! Make us a part of your litigation team.
“Trust, confidence, and reliability were [the] major factors that impressed me most when I hired the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray to represent me. I was seriously injured at work and was treated very badly by my employer. I’ve gone through many hurdles and obstacles looking for the right attorney to satisfy my needs and expectations but nobody [seemed] to care about me. Some turned me down [while others] took advantage of me. [They] did not even care and appeared to be more interested in what they could get out of my case, thus, putting their [own] personal interest over mine.
I was hopeless and almost gave up, because my workers’ compensation claim was tied [in] with my discrimination/harassment civil lawsuit against my employer, [which] made the whole situation very complicated. However, it was not too late when I met Mr. Nehoray and his office manager, Alma Gavia, who gave me hope and courage. They patiently listened to me and spent time and effort with me. Mr. Nehoray took-on my case despite complications. He handled it with proper care and professionalism.
If you are looking for a combination of excellent legal representation and positive results, Bob Nehoray and his staff will take care of you. Finally, after consulting with many attorneys, I am glad I am in good hands. Don’t be desperate. Put aside your frustrations and be patient. Go and get a free consultation.

“Law Offices of Bob Nehoray… I will NEVER be able to thank you enough for what you’ve done for me; and it isn’t the amazing settlement that you got for me that I am most grateful for; it is how professional you and your entire office staff were. Everyone is SO nice [and] caring. They made me feel like a person and not just a ‘client.’ The fact that you were able to handle both my Personal Injury and my Workers’ Compensation cases at the same time was very important as well. Bob, you and Behnaz are the best of the best and you will forever have my appreciation and my HIGH recommendation! All the best to you and everyone at the Law Offices of Bob Nehoray. Thank you all so very much!”
