LA Attorney Toni Jaramilla Featured in Workplace Sexual Harassment Documentary, ‘Nevertheless’

Los Angeles workers’ rights attorney Toni Jaramilla continues her support for the #MeToo movement by bringing her legal expertise to Emmy Award-winning Sarah Moshman’s documentary film, “Nevertheless.”


Nevertheless,” which is slated to be released in 2019, examines the social, legal, historical and masculinity aspects of the workplace sexual harassment crisis in America.

Los Angeles attorney Toni Jaramilla was interviewed about sexual harassment law and was chosen, she said, “Because of my expertise and many years of experience practicing since 1994, litigating sexual harassment cases.”

Moreover, she was chosen for this documentary project due to her assisting in legislative work at the Capitol on laws inspired by the #MeToo movement. During the on-camera interview for “Nevertheless,” Jaramilla was asked about new laws and about what an employee should do when she feels she’s being sexually harassed.

According to the “Nevertheless” website, the legal side of sexual harassment is where we find a call to action. The film follows people like Jaramilla in the frontline battle on Capitol Hill fighting to change laws and practices. Organizations may request a screening of “Nevertheless” on their website.

“Those with privilege and power must step up and make change,” Jaramilla stated. “Meaningful progress can certainly be accomplished in this Me Too era if we utilize our positions of privilege, whether it is racial, gender, economic, educational, or political privilege.”

Jaramilla is known for her work legislatively to ban “secret settlements,” also called non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), “gag order provisions” or “hush money” settlements in sexual harassment and assault claims, as well as legislation that will prohibit employers from requiring employees from releasing their sexual harassment and assault claims in exchange for a small benefit such as a raise or bonus. She is also working on legislation that would extend the statute of limitations for filing sexual harassment and discrimination claims.
