Sexual harassment
Back to Practice Areas
Sexual harassment includes unwelcome sexual provocations, sexual requests, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature, including text messages and emails.
The harasser can be a supervisor, a colleague, or in some cases, a person who is not an employee. Usually, the stalker is in a position of power or authority over the victim. After a person refuses to be sexually provocative, sexual harassment may lead to retaliation.
If you experience sexual misconduct at work, remember you are not alone, you have options, and you are entitled to compensation. Contact Human Rights Advocacy Firm in New York at +1 718-280-9545 and we can help determine if you are entitled to compensation and we will make sure that your rights are confidentially protected.
Sexual harassment in the workplace may even occur outside the office, such as during holidays or office gatherings. Some industries, such as the fashion industry, are particularly vulnerable to sexual harassment in subtle but harmful ways.

Sexual harassment is considered a form of gender discrimination because it is harassment that occurs because of a person's gender.

Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits all forms of gender discrimination, including sexual harassment. Sexual harassment reports are handled by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Compared with the civil rights law, the New York State Human Rights Law and the New York City Human Rights Law also prohibit sexual harassment and apply too much smaller employers. Within a year, 11,717 complaints of sexual harassment were filed with EEOC across the country.

Sexual harassment cases are complicated and require experienced New York sexual harassment lawyers.

Inevitably, there will be a high degree of discomfort when testifying to the fact of harassment. Sexual harassment cases usually involve a "he said she said" type of testimony, so credibility and any written evidence or email are fundamental. Although retaliation based on submitting a sexual harassment report is prohibited, the workplace is still uncomfortable.
At Human Rights Advocacy, we understand the difficulty of filing a sexual harassment lawsuit, but we also know that no one should tolerate unwelcome sexual provocation in the workplace. We are active advocates for our clients and have extensive experience in harassment and discrimination claims.
