It’s against the law in California to possess, produce or distribute “obscene matter” depicting children younger than 18. This would be a violation of PC 311, the state’s child pornography law. In cases where both parties are under 18, state courts have been known to show some leniency....Read more »

A license to California attorney can represent you anywhere in the state. It makes sense however to hire someone who is local to you as they are familiar with local court processes, judges and prosecutors. The fee you would pay would correspond with the charge you have any criminal history you...Read more »
One of our managers knows I’m on my period and yet every time I mention that I need to “go to the back” he pulls me aside and asks my why multiple times a day. I’m really uncomfortable and don’t know how to handle the situation. Is this legal in the state of California?
If you are using the facilities at times other than your meal and rest periods, it is lawful for an employer to determine why you are not working and leaving your work area. That said, if you believe this supervisor is asking for a more creepy reason, you should report it to HR.
I was sexually assaulted in the Anaheim area this year. It resulted in me going to planned parenthood, which unbeknownst to me led to the police coming in to the room I was in with an iv in me and everything. A report was made, and I got a letter recently from the Chief of Police. I’m told to... Read more »
You never need to give a statement to police. Politely decline. The police are only doing their job; they want rapists off the streets and don't want anybody else hurt. If the police continue then call a lawyer. Best of luck.
Your question is unclear. If you are asking if you have a case, the answer is likely no. If you are asking if the offended employee has a case against the ex-employee or you, more would need to be known but possibly. Of course, the nature of the pictures would be important to understand. A...Read more »
But apparently, he did not. He just keep talking he will pay me back, he will work hard, but nothing paid back. I let him use my credit card for daily life, but he used for sports betting without my consent. He kept promised me he won't do it again but it is still happening and he even do cocaine....

Hello. So I made a list to help sum things up to allow future questioning if possible. Besides that, these are the main issues I’m curious as to what options I have to take action in perhaps a lawsuit of some sort. Hope to hear back.
1). Harassment by employee and supervisor.... Read more »
You present many issues that need to be addressed. This question and answer site is not the place to address such diverse and complicated matters because for each issue far more would need to be known to give you competent answers. And this Q&A forum is not the place to ask an attorney to work...Read more »
First of all, provide sufficient details to permit a reasoned analysis of your situation. Conclusory statements are unhelpful. Facts and details are most important, but nothing is more important than a chronological statement of who did what, to whom, when, where and how.
To constitute sexual harassment in the workplace you must prove you were subjected to unwelcomed comments or conduct of a sexual nature that was so severe or pervasive so as to fundamentally alter the workplace rendering it hostile toward you...Read more »
What you describe is a crime. Report it to the police. It is also a civil wrong, and if you think you can prove it, you may well be able to find an attorney to assist you. You need to locate and consult with one or more personal injury attorneys to see if they are willing to handle your matter....Read more »
Someone I work with is accusing me of sexual harassment. We are both girls, I'm a feminine lesbian. So we got one another numbers from work. I messaged her telling her " Your underpants are showing, just looking out for you." she sends an emoji. I said " nice underwear " and send a laughing emoji.... Read more »
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. There may not be much you can do from a legal standpoint unfortunately. If you work for a private company, you are most likely an at will employee, which means that you can be terminated at any time, with or without a reason, so if the company decides to fire...Read more »
