Your post does not disclose what kind of hearing you missed. Was it an EDD appeal, or a workers compensation hearing, or a court hearing in a lawsuit? Each of these forums would require a different answer.
Given some of the things you have reported, you may well have legal rights that need to be preserved and prosecuted. At this point it would be wise for you to locate and consult with an experienced employment law attorney as soon as possible to explore your facts and determine your options. I would suggest you look either on this site, or go to www.cela.org, the home page for the California Employment Lawyers Association, an organization whose members are dedicated to the representation of employees against their employers.
Most employment attorneys who practice this area of law offer a free or low cost consultation in the beginning and then, if the matter has merit and value, will usually agree to work on a contingency basis, meaning you can hire an attorney without paying any money until the matter results in a positive outcome for you. Many advance all the costs of the litigation as well. Do not let fear of fees and costs keep you from finding a good attorney.
Good luck to you.

I agree with my colleague's excellent answer.
It is unclear whether you are referring to a Court hearing, a Labor Commissioner hearing, an EDD appeal or a Worker's Compensation hearing. Further, it is unclear what remedy you are seeking. If it was a Labor Commissioner hearing, you may still have time to file in Court. Further, you mention sexual harassment, which you should discuss confidentially with an attorney off line, so it remains protected by the attorney client privilege.
You should speak with an employment attorney about your remaining avenues of relief. Most provide free consultations.
