Sexual Harassment Lawyers in Brooklyn
Quid Pro Quo Harassment | Hostile Work Environment | Employment Discrimination
Though companies report nearly full compliance with mandatory sexual harassment training, the pervasiveness of sexual impropriety remains a problem in the workplace. In 2012, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reported more than 12,000 new allegations of sexual harassment on the job. Some studies indicate that one in three women and one in six employees have been subjected to sexual harassment at work. Don’t be another victim. Let Leeds Brown Law, P.C., protect your rights.

Our Brooklyn Sexual Harassment Practice
We offer comprehensive legal counsel to men and women who have been victims of sexual harassment on the job, taking claims involving:
- Quid pro quo, or “this for that,” sexual harassment — This type of sexual harassment can take the form of promises of a job-related benefit in exchange for sexual favors or threats of a job-related sanction for refusal to submit to sexual advances.
- The creation or existence of a hostile work environment based on sex — This occurs when an employer encourages, fosters or condones an atmosphere in which inappropriate jokes, pictures, gestures, comments, innuendos, touching or other acts/communications lead to an environment in which sex is pervasive.
