Our Mineola Sexual Harassment Practice
We handle all types of sexual harassment claims arising in the workplace, including:
- Quid pro quo harassment actions — This involves a promise of a job-related benefit, such as a raise or promotion, in exchange for sexual favors. It can also take the form of a work-related punishment, from a demotion to termination, for refusal to submit to a sexual request.
- The existence of a hostile environment — If your employer knows or has reason to know that an environment exists at work in which sexual references, pictures, jokes, innuendos or other actions are pervasive or prevalent, your employer must take steps to put an end to it. You have a right to seek compensation when your employer fails to act.
