Hostile Work Environment Lawyers in N.Y.
New York State and New York City are governed by the New York State and City Human Rights Laws, respectively, which state that no employee should have to work in a hostile environment caused by repeated inappropriate comments, behaviors, or suggestions. These comments or behaviors may be sexual in nature, or discriminatory, but they are illegal and can be subject to a hostile work environment lawsuit. You can file a claim whether you are the person being harassed or if the harassment is directed at someone else. If you experience this hostile behavior at work, you should contact us right away, regardless of whether your harasser is your boss, supervisor, co-worker, or a client.
