As a subcategory of employment law, harassment is a prevalent problem in the workplace. If your work environment is hostile, uncomfortable or otherwise unacceptable due to harassment, this can have a negative effect on other aspects of your life. Our team understands this and works hard to obtain justice for our clients who are victimized by workplace harassment.
Workplace Harassment in NYC
Workplace harassment is prohibited by law on all levels of government. The Americans With Disabilities Act, the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act are federal laws that spell out anti-harassment policies. They prohibit harassment based on various characteristics, such as disability, gender, genetic trait, race, age, national origin, religion or color.
In New York City, the New York State Human Rights Law and New York City Human Rights Law extend these protections to smaller companies with four employees or more. The state and local laws also add additional protected categories to the federal protections: domestic violence victim status, sexual orientation, military status, and marital or familial status. The New York State Division of Human Rights is the local governing body for these laws, accepting harassment complaints and conducting investigations. This Division may issue civil penalties amounting up to $50,000. If you are the victim of harassment, you may also pursue your complaint via civil suit in court to seek compensatory and equitable relief.
