    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...

    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.

    Seek out a local employment attorney to review the agreement prior to signing it. You can look for an employment attorney right here on the Avvo site, or you can check with the referral service from the Bar association for your county. An attorney is likely to charge you an hourly fee to review the agreement for you.

    Based on the phone calls you describe it sounds like you have a defamation claim against your sister-in-law. Contact a defamation attorney or an employment attorney right away to protect your rights and discuss a plan of action, as the statute of limitations in California for defamation is only one year. I would be happy to schedule a free initial consultation to discuss the details of your case with you. You can reach me via email at katrina.telfer@brodericklaw.com or by phone at (650) 857-9000.

    From the face of what you describe, it sounds like you have a sexual harassment and retaliation claim against your employer. However, I would like to know more about what type of hearing and appeal you were involved in. Was this a union matter? You should speak with a sexual harassment attorney right away to discuss the specific facts of your case. Whether or not an attorney will take a case on a contingency fee basis often depends on many factors, including the specific facts of your case....
