Sexual Harassment Claims in New York

Federal and New York state laws, as well as the New York City Human Rights law, provide varying levels of protection against sexual harassment in the workplace. Generally speaking, a person subjected to offensive conduct of a sexual nature that creates emotional distress and intimidation on the job may have cause for legal action.

Such legal action may be directed toward an end to conditions that created a hostile work environment and restoration of employment status, as well as recovery of financial and other damages, depending on specific circumstances. At Jacobowitz and Gubits, LLP, experienced attorneys investigate sexual harassment and gender discrimination allegations, provide insightful analysis, and stand ready to prosecute or defend these complex employment claims.
