What Is Workplace Sexual Harassment?
While many cases of sexual harassment are directed at women, the truth is anyone can be a target. Any type of harassment at work can make it difficult to do your job. This can lead to poor performance reviews and attendance issues. The personal fallout can be undue stress that causes anxiety, depression, PTSD and even suicidal ideation.
Our sexual harassment attorneys are committed to providing the legal support you need to move up and out of your situation, while holding the responsible parties accountable. We can help with:
- A hostile work environment created by your refusal of a sexual advance or request
- Quid pro quo requests
- Gender/sex-based hostility
- Unwanted advances or requests for dates
- Sexual jokes, comments or actions
- Denial of advancement due to nonengagement of sexual requests
New York State’s workplace harassment laws are fairly progressive. This means that all workers are eligible to file a suit, including domestic workers, contractors and subcontractors, vendors and consultants, regardless of their citizenship status. We can also advise on issues regarding workplace retaliation, mandatory arbitration clauses or nondisclosure agreements.
