If You Have Been a Victim of Harassment, Get a Lawyer Involved
Sexual harassment continues to be a serious problem in New York City and state businesses, where workers of both genders and sexual orientations are exposed to abuse both subtle and explicit. The sooner you get an attorney involved in your situation, the better equipped you are to take action, stop the abuse and hold your employer accountable.
At the law office of Philip Taubman , our employment law and discrimination attorneys offer years of experience and a client-focused approach to getting results for clients who have experienced sexual harassment in the workplace. We help you take control of the situation and protect your rights.
What Kind of Behavior Is Considered Sexual Harassment?
Sexual harassment is legally defined as “unwelcome verbal, visual, or physical conduct of a sexual nature that is severe or pervasive and affects working conditions or creates a hostile environment.” It does not matter if you are a man or a woman, and it does not matter if you felt compelled to accept or reject the unwanted behavior. As long as the questionable conduct was unwelcome, you may have a strong claim for sexual harassment.

Even if you don’t have a case yet, we can help you gather the documentation you will need and know when to take action. We offer years of experience helping clients avail themselves of the progressive New York employment laws in cases involving:

If you have been regularly subjected to sexual comments, unwanted physical contact or offensive sexual material that creates an offensive environment, then you are suffering from a hostile work environment. Our attorneys can help you put a stop to it.
