If You Were Sexually Harassed At Work, You May Be Eligible For Workers' Comp

As anyone who has experienced sexual harassment on the job can tell you, it causes an immense amount of stress. Fears about what will happen, what you can do to stop it, whether anyone will believe you if you bring it up with your employer and whether you can keep your job is enough to keep anyone in a constant state of anxiety.

Unfortunately, sexual harassment, particularly the kind defined under the law as a "hostile work environment", continues to be a problem in the workforce. And medical research is continually discovering the harmful effects of prolonged stress.

That is why California workers' compensation law allows workers who are suffering from medical conditions related to their workplace harassment to obtain workers' compensation benefits.
