Employees have the right to work free of harassment, discrimination, and unlawful workplace conduct. However, there are some employers in New York City and Long Island allow or even foster unlawful conduct in their workplace. When an employee brings attention to unlawful workplace conduct, many employers act out in fear, retaliating against that employee in the hopes that he or she won’t speak up again. In almost every employment-related case we’ve handled, we’ve seen employees standing up for their rights only to find themselves penalized, or retaliated against, by their employer.
