Our Hempstead Sexual Harassment Practice
We handle all types of sexual harassment claims arising out of employment, including:
- Quid pro quo claims — If you have been promised a job-related benefit in exchange for sexual favors, or have been threatened with a demotion, pay cut or other work-related punishment if you refuse a coworker’s sexual advances, you have a right to seek compensation. If the actions of your supervisor or a coworker have made your job so unbearable that you have decided to quit, you can also seek damages for wrongful discharge. You may even be able to seek compensation for sexual harassment by vendors or customers if your employer knowingly tolerates or condones such action.
- The existence of a hostile work environment based on sex — Your employer has a duty to ensure that the environment in which you work is not a threatening one or one that creates an offensive atmosphere based on sex. If your employer allows or condones unwanted sexual advances or touching, the dissemination of sexually oriented e-mails or communications, the posting of sexually provocative pictures, or the communication of sexual jokes or innuendos, you can pursue legal remedies.
