    I would definitely recommend finding an attorney right away. Talk to both a criminal defense attorney if criminal charges are pending and a civil attorney for the possible civil ramifications that can follow the criminal proceeding. Because they are both minors, the female victim has many years to file a lawsuit.

    You should consult with an employment attorney right away to discuss your case in further detail. While it seems that your interactions with your boss began as mutually wanted communications, it is unlawful retaliation for your boss to punish you at work now for refusing to send him further photos. An experienced employment attorney can assist you in going over the specific facts of your case and advising you on all of your options.

    In California, most employees are "at will" employees, which means that they can be fired for any reason, or for no reason at all, so long as they are not fired for a discriminatory reason or a reason that is against public policy. While it may not have been fair, it does not appear from your description of the facts that your coworker has an actionable legal claim.

    I would consult a local sexual harassment attorney who can advise you after hearing all the details of your case. While California Civil Code section 51.9 protects students from sexual harassment, this statute is generally used in the school context for students that are sexually harassed by teachers. However, depending on the acts of your professors or other school authorities, you may have a case against the school. You may also have a strong defamation case against the student spreading...

    Sexual harassment is not limited to the workplace, and in California there are laws that prohibit sexual harassment in professional relationships. California Civil Code Section 51.9 prohibits sexual harassment that occurs as a part of a business or professional relationship. To succeed on a claim under this section, a plaintiff must prove several elements. First, there must be a business, service, or professional relationship between the plaintiff and defendant. Professionals who may be...

    Do not sign the release. Talk to an employment attorney right away. Your employer must pay you all your wages due within 72 hours of you quitting. To withhold your pay is a violation of the Labor Code, and is another claim you have against the employer in addition to sexual harassment, failure to prevent sexual harassment, and constructive discharge. A constructive discharge claim means that your employer forced you out of the workplace by creating conditions that were so intolerable you...

    I would continue your attempts to find an attorney to assist you. There are relataively short statutes of limitation for bringing sexual harassment and/or retaliation claims, so I would suggest filing administrative complaints with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the Federal EEOC to protect your rights. Also, while your recording may have problems, you should speak with an attorney to determine how it may be useful to your case. I would hold off on the blog for...

    As the attorneys above have mentioned, it is difficult to anaylze your case without knowing more about what has happened, but it definitely sounds like you are suffering in the workplace, and you should consult with an employment attorney right away to determine what your next steps should be. I would advise consulting with an employment attorney about your case before you go to the owner, so that you can be fully preared and advised regarding your rights.

    You should consult with an employment attorney right away to discuss the details of your case. An experienced employment attorney can help you make claims for your unpaid wages, for penalties against your employer for violating the Labor Code, and for damages for the distress you have suffered as a result of the sexual harassment.

    If he has told lies about you within the last year that are harmful to your reputation, you may have a civil case against him for defamation. I would contact an attorney that is experienced in defamation law regarding your defamation claims, and an attorney that is experienced in sexual abuse cases to discuss the viability of any theory regarding the sexual abuse you suffered in the past. I wish you the best of luck in finding the justice you deserve.
