Staten Island Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Employment Discrimination Claims | Hostile Work Environment Actions | Promises or Threats Based on Sexual Demands in the Workplace
Though statistics from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) show that the number of sexual harassment claims filed every year has come down in the last 10 years, there were still more than 12,500 sexual harassment claims filed in 2011. Furthermore, many legitimate claims simply go unreported, either because the victims are fearful for their jobs or safety, or because of the deep sense of shame that can be tied to sexual harassment. Don’t let yourself be a victim. The attorneys at Leeds Brown Law, PC can help.

Our Staten Island Sexual Harassment Practice
We represent people who have been exposed to any type of sexual harassment at work, including:
- The promise of a work-related benefit or the threat of work-related punishment based on compliance with sexual demands or requests. Known as quid pro quo (“this for that”) sexual harassment, this can include promises of raises or promotions, or threats of termination or undesirable job assignments.
- The creation of a hostile work environment based on sex. If your employer allows or condones sexual innuendos, jokes, pictures, e-mails, touching or other acts or references, you may have the right to seek compensation for any losses.
