About Sexual Harassment Law in Los Angeles

In our experience, many people don’t know if what they’ve been subjected to in the workplace legally constitutes sexual harassment. Most sexual harassment claims do not involve an express request of sex for job benefits, but a work environment filled with unwelcome comments, conduct, or language.

Shirazi Law Firm is incredible! I came to them almost a year ago about a sexual harassment case. I was referred by someone who knew them and their skill set well. We got the ball rolling with my case then after a few months I got cold feet, I told them I didn’t want to follow through and they understood. I went back to the place where I was wrongfully harassed because the person was removed from the location but when I came back they treated me very poorly. They were retaliating in many different ways. I got the courage to call Mr. Shirazi again and he said let’s take care of this, no one deserves to be treated this way. He cared about my case and was very sensitive to the subject matter. He is professional and reliable. We continued the lawsuit and I am so happy I did because they made the whole process so easy. Mr Shirazi and his team took everything into their own hands and every few weeks I would get an update of how things were going. He was accessible when I had any questions or concerns and he guided me through the whole thing. He knows what he is doing and he does it well. We settled my case and I wouldn’t have done this with anyone else. They are a great firm!

Quid pro quo

Quid pro quo is the legal term for when a supervisor demands sexual favors of a subordinate as a condition of getting or keeping a job benefit. Such demands are illegal, regardless of whether the sexual favors occur or any negative action is taken against the employee. The gender of the supervisor and subordinate does not matter.
