How does New York Law Prohibit Sexual Harassment?

First, White Plains employers may be required to create company policies concerning sexual conduct and post them for employees to see.

There are also agencies which are formed by federal and New York law for the specific purpose of handling sexual harassment cases. Such agencies have the authority to investigate work sites to determine if the complaints they receive in White Plains are true.
