Sex Discrimination & Sexual Harassment
Popular culture would lead many Americans to believe that sexual harassment was a thing of the past. But a sometimes silent majority of women and men know that sexual harassment is still an all too real element of the modern workplace.
For conduct to qualify as sexual harassment it does not have to take the form of blatant physical touching. More subtle, but persistent or pervasive action, such as pressuring an employee to go on a date or socialize, requiring an employee to work or socialize in a sexually charged environment, or only giving preferential treatment to employees with whom an employer has a sexual relationship, may sometimes qualify as harassment under federal, state, or at least, NYC local law.
If you feel that you are being affected by harassing behavior you may have a claim for sexual harassment.
