Sensitive Legal Representation For Victims Of Sexual Harassment, Workplace Abuse And Discrimination In NY
Under the law, sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Sexual harassment can take many different forms. Many women, and increasingly men, have been subjected to sexual discrimination and harassment throughout the United States. Sexual discrimination may involve denying an employee benefits (such as a promotion) based on the employee’s sex, or failing to provide a safe work environment for employees. Sexual harassment may also include offensive jokes, unwanted sexual advances, and bribing employees with raises in exchange for sexual favors.
The harasser may be a man or a woman, and the victim does not have to be of the opposite sex. The harasser can be a supervisor of the victim, a supervisor in another area, a co-worker, or a non-employee. Furthermore, a sexual harassment victim is not defined as the person harassed; it can be anyone affected by the offensive conduct. Lastly, harassment can occur without economic injury or discharge to the victim. In all cases, the harasser’s conduct must be unwelcome.
Employment Discrimination In New York
It is illegal to discriminate in any aspect of employment, including hiring and firing, compensation, assignment or classification of employees, transfer, promotion, layoff, employment benefits, and more.
There are many federal laws that prohibit job discrimination:
Bars employment discrimination based on sex, race, religion, color, or national origin.
Prohibits sex-based wage discrimination for men and women who perform substantially equal work in the same establishment.
Protects people 40 years of age or older from age discrimination.
Bars discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities.
Provides monetary damages in cases of intentional employment discrimination.
Under the law, discriminatory practices also include harassment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, or age; employment decisions based on stereotypes about various groups; and retaliation against someone for opposing discriminatory practices, and more.
Despite strict and wide-reaching anti-employment discrimination laws such as these, some employers are still failing to hire, terminating, or mistreating employees based on their race, color, nationality, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. Such discrimination is illegal and punishable by law. We encourage victims of discrimination to file a lawsuit, recover compensatory and punitive damages, and force the employer to comply with anti-discrimination laws.
If you or a loved one has been a victim of employment discrimination and are considering filing a lawsuit, please contact the attorneys at our New York City law firm today to discuss your case.
