Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in Irondequoit, NY

Sexual harassment is defined under New York law as unwelcome conduct that is of a sexual nature, which includes both verbal and physical actions. Employers are most often involved in the following types of sexual harassment acts: demanding sexual favors in exchange for promotions, creating a sexually offensive work environment, and making sexual advances.

How does New York Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, employers in Irondequoit are often required to implement company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. Company polices might include such matters as contact information to be used in reporting sexual harassment, filing procedures, and remedial measures in the event that a claim is proven to be true.

The laws of the state of New York and federal law have both appointed agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given Irondequoit work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Also, these laws prohibit employers from firing an employee for alleging sexual harassment or taking any action in retaliation to a claim.

How can a New York attorney help?

A claim for sexual harassment may be difficult to investigate and prove without the proper expertise in the relevant areas of law. It's not uncommon for federal investigators to be too busy to handle individual claims. Therefore, hiring an attorney in Irondequoit can be the safest way to file your claim within the deadlines for sexual harassment claims that New York has defined.
