Former LAPD Officer Settle Sexual Harassment Suit for $1.25 Million

The Los Angeles City Council recently approved the payout of a $1.25 million settlement to settle a lawsuit filed by two former LAPD officers who claimed they were sexually harassed by their supervisor.  The women both claimed they were subject to repeated sexual harassment, including vulgar sexual harassments and proposition, from their male supervisor, despite both being openly gay.  In support of the Los Angeles City Council’s decision, the LAPD reportedly conducted in an investigation and found several other officers who witnessed the abuse and were prepared to testify at trial on the plaintiffs’ behalf.

In California, the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA)   prohibits a hostile work environment created by sexual discrimination and/or harassment, in addition to discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, age, ancestry, religion, disability, marital status, medical condition, national origin, sex, and sexual orientation. In addition, FEHA also prohibits retaliation for complaining about such discrimination and/or harassment.

If you feel you have been discriminated against you can file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC, please contact us for a confidential  consultation.
