The New York Sexual Harassment Attorneys at Leeds Brown Law have decades of successful experience fighting workplace sexual harassment. In the workplace, there are two common types of sexual harassment. The first is known as quid pro quo harassment. This is a situation that may be a one-time occurrence or involve repeated behavior that requires one person to tolerate some form of sexual harassment in order to get a job, keep a job, get a raise or promotion, or to receive some other benefit. This harassment can come from a prospective employer, a current employer, a manager or supervisor, or a co-worker. The sex and sexual orientation of your harasser does not matter.
The second situation that gives rise to sexual harassment claims is a hostile work environment. Hostile work environments involve repeated behaviors that are abusive or offensive, or that interfere or alter a victims’ ability to perform their job. Employers that foster or otherwise allow these conditions to continue can be found liable for the conduct of the offending employees.
In either situation, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and many New York State and New York City anti-discrimination and sexual harassment statutes prohibit sexual harassment and provide victims with the means of pursuing and obtaining justice. Though, it is highly suggested that victims of sexual harassment obtain legal counsel in order to obtain the maximum legal and financial justice they’re entitled to.
If you are experiencing sexual harassment at work, you should consider both emailing and verbally expressing your concerns with your employer or Human Resource representative. Your employer may remedy the situation before any legal action becomes necessary. It’s important to keep records of your correspondence between you, your employer, or your Human Resource representative. It’s important to note that it is unlawful for your employer to retaliate against you in any employment-related decisions (ie., termination, demotion, denial of benefits, etc.), for expressing your concerns or filing a claim against them for workplace sexual harassment. Should your employer fail to remedy the situation or ignore your concerns, call us today. You must fight to protect your personal wellness, your job, and your career. You require experienced legal counsel – and that’s what we offer.
