The California Democratic Party has recently settled lawsuits filed by a leader who used to work in the organization. There were three lawsuits filed, all naming Eric Bauman as an aggressor in incidents involving sexual harassment, unwanted physical contact and other unacceptable situations. The discrimination, harassment and retaliation lawsuits were recently settled, one of which was settled for a sum of $1 million.

Bauman resigned his post in the organization in 2018 after an investigation revealed wrongdoing and various types of inappropriate behavior instigated by Bauman. Ten different people came forward claiming that he touched them in a sexual manner or made sexually offensive comments in professional settings. The plaintiffs claimed that the political party did not do enough to protect them against these types of incidents.

Any type of sexual harassment in the workplace is unacceptable. Unfortunately, employees are often reluctant to speak out because they fear retaliation or that others will not believe their claims. These lawsuit settlements serve as positive examples of how those who suffered this type of treatment can fight for justice and restitution through the civil justice system.

It is possible to hold liable parties and organizations accountable for discrimination, harassment and retaliation in a professional setting. California employees who experience physical or verbal harassment of any kind do not have to suffer in silence or simply hope that things get better on their own. Victims may seek legal guidance regarding the best way to proceed, which may include moving forward with a claim against the employer and other liable parties.
