    We Fight for the Rights of those Suffering Sexual Harassment in the Workplace

    There are federal, state, and local laws that protect employees from sex discrimination and sexual harassment. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its amendments prohibit employment discrimination because of things like sex, race, religion, age, pregnancy and disability. But New York and New York City have laws as well that protect even more employees from discrimination in the workplace. New York State Human Rights Law (NYSHRL) or New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL) prohibit discrimination based on characteristics such as gender identity, sexual orientation, familial status and more. At times, the laws overlap and determining how to proceed in your case, is a decision that should be made with counsel.

    You may also have a claim for unlawful retaliation if you have received adverse treatment after complaining about sexual harassment or refusing to acquiesce to sexual advances. You are not alone. We can help.

    Having attorneys who thoroughly understand the various rules and regulations that apply to your case is essential to formulating a successful plan of action. Call us to learn more about the laws that protect you from gender discrimination.
