Any unwanted conduct of a sexual nature from a supervisor or fellow employee is considered sexual harassment and is unacceptable and illegal. If you’ve been the victim of unwanted sexual comments, jokes, or touching, you may be eligible to file a sexual harassment claim.
It is not only the responsibility of the offending party, but the responsibility of the employers to address such situations when they arise without retaliation against the person making the claims. Many employees are aware that reporting such conditions often results in this sort of retaliation and are therefore reluctant to do so.
You have the right to work in an environment free of sexual harassment according to federal, state, and local laws. If you feel you’re the victim of sexual harassment at your workplace, contact the New York sexual harassment lawyers at Lisa Michael and Associates, P.C. to discuss your case today during your free initial consultation.
