Sexual Harassment and Discrimination
Sexual Harassment is when a person is subjected to comments or conduct of a sexual nature while at work or a place of public accommodation. It can range from sexual comments about a person’s body, to continuously asking a person out on a date, to comments about wanting to have sex with the person, all the way up to forced sexual contact or even rape. It is all illegal and you do not have to take it. Furthermore, the New York City Law is so much more protective of employees with respect to Sexual Harassment. For example comments or conduct that may not be considered Sexual Harassment under the state or Federal law, may be covered by the New York City law. New York City has some of the best employment laws for people subject to discrimination based on Sexual Harassment. Whether it is Man on Woman, Woman or Man, Man on Man, or Woman on Woman, Sexual Harassment is illegal.
