Sexual Advances

Leeds Brown Law: Promoting Gender Equality In The Workplace
Touted as leaders in our industry, we at Leeds Brown Law are devoted to instituting justice in the workplace. As distinguished employment lawyers, we’re well-versed in the dynamics of our trade. When it comes to sexual misconduct in professional settings, it’s imperative for victims to seek legal counsel. When employers allow immoral habits to endure without consequence, it fosters a sordid and inharmonious environment.

Unfortunately, sexual harassment is exceedingly prevalent in the workplace and is detrimental to professional success. Sexual advances are wildly common, and they perpetuate gender discrimination. It’s for this reason why we’ve made it our mission to seek justice on behalf of those who are victims of work-related sexual assault. We offer free and confidential evaluations, and you can receive your consultation by giving us a call today.

Sexual Advances Take Many Forms
Sexual advances involve any unsolicited remarks or physical gestures that allude to sex. These run the gamut from jokes about sexual preferences to sexually suggestive comments. In the hopes of better identifying when you’ve encountered sexual harassment, below are some of the most common occurrences of sexual advances.

  • Crass jokes
  • Sexual storytelling
  • Opinions on sexual fantasies
  • Emails that contain lewd language
  • Offensive gawking
  • Catcalling
  • Whistling
  • Unsolicited advice on how to dress
  • Sharing inappropriate videos
  • Sexual jokes

When these instances arise, it can make the victim feel wholly uncomfortable. Meanwhile, the perpetrator will likely maintain that they were merely joking around. However, there’s truth in jest. Above all else, sexual harassment is no joke and shouldn’t be taken lightly. With our fair and trusted representation, we strive to furnish our clients with the compensation that they deserve. With our guidance, you won’t feel helpless or undervalued. Employ our services if you’ve been exposed to any form of sexual assault.

Laws That Protect You
Both state and federal laws prohibit sexual advances in work environments. Those who aren’t in compliance with these laws are violating both the New York Human Rights Law and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Failure to adhere to these regulations will result in a lawsuit. At Leeds Brown Law, we know which steps to take to ensure that our clients receive optimal representation.

If you’ve been approached by a colleague or superior in a sexual manner, it’s critical to keep records of these encounters. From unwarranted remarks to inappropriate touching, everything should be documented. Should the case go to court, you’ll have detailed accounts of when the misconduct transpired. Help us help you by contacting us today. We proudly serve the Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Nassau County, and Suffolk County areas.
