This blog is a forum for open and fair dialoge regarding workplace harassment in the State of California. Its aim is to explore people's experiences in the workplace and to discuss employee and employer rights. This blog should be a constructive place to learn and exchange ideas about California Employment Law and a toolbox to Fight Harassment.

Under California Law the harasser is personally liable to the victim of the harassment. If the harasser is a supervisor, or in a supervisory position, the employer is also liable to the victim. For example, if a manager of a fast food restaurant is found liable of sexual harassment for giving unwelcomed massages to the employees, the owner of that fast food restaurant is also liable. This is the case even if the owner has no knowledge of the manager's actions. The owner may be an individual, a partnership, a corporation, or some other kind of legal entity.
