New Rochelle Sexual Harassment Attorney

Find the right Sexual Harassment attorney in New Rochelle, NY

Sexual harassment is defined by New York law as unwelcome conduct that is of a sexual nature, which includes both verbal and physical actions. Employers are most commonly involved in the following forms 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 New Rochelle are often required to create company policies regarding sexual conduct, which must be posted and visible to employees. The policies should at least include: contact information for the reporting of sexual harassment incidents, an outline of policies to be followed in filing a claim, and the remedies available when a claim successfully proven.

The laws of the state of New York and federal law have both established agencies with the authority to investigate sexual harassment claims. These agencies conduct investigations at a given New Rochelle work site in order to verify if a complaint that they have received is true or not. Furthermore, under these laws, employers may not fire or retaliate against any employee who has alleged sexual harassment in a claim.

How can a New York attorney help?

Without expertise in the applicable laws, both investigating and showing a sexual harassment claim can be difficult. The federal officers who investigate claims of sexual harassment are, unfortunately, frequently too busy to give much attention to any one claim. Therefore, hiring a lawyer in New Rochelle may be the ideal way to ensure that your claim is filed within the deadlines specified by New York for sexual harassment matters.
