How can I protect my rights if I have been sexually harassed?

How can I protect my rights if I have been sexually harassed?

First and foremost, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced employment lawyer as soon as possible. This is important because the statute of limitations (the time you have in which to bring a case) is not clearly defined in sexual harassment cases. You should act quickly and consult an attorney. Second,  do not sign a release. If you sign a release, you will have most likely given up your ability to bring a claim for sexual harassment. However, before bringing a lawsuit, you must file a claim with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The employee then has a choice of allowing the administrative agency to investigate or immediately obtain a right to sue letter. Again, all of these decisions have ramifications. To best protect your rights, you should involve a lawyer to help navigate you through all these decisions.
