Suffolk County Sexual Harassment Attorneys
Promises or Threats Tied to Sexual Demands | Hostile Work Environment | Employment Discrimination
Even though the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) reports 97 percent compliance with mandatory sexual harassment training, the incidences of sexual harassment in the workplace are still pervasive. As recently as 2011, the EEOC received in excess of 12,000 new sexual harassment claims. One study found that nearly one in three women (31 percent) said they had been subjected to sexual harassment on the job, but that fewer than 40 percent reported the wrongdoing.
