New York Sexual Harassment Lawyers
Protecting You From Sexual Harassment
Offensive comments, inappropriate physical contact and offers of advancement in exchange for sexual favors are examples of sexual harassment that are illegal in the workplace. Protection from sexual harassment is provided by federal, city and state anti-discrimination and employment laws.
At Westermann Sheehy Keenan Samaan & Aydelott, LLP, we take sexual harassment seriously. If you believe you have been a victim of any form of sexual harassment or discrimination at work, contact us at 888-866-0425. We represent clients in sexual harassment lawsuits in White Plains, on Long Island and throughout the New York City metro area.
Quid Pro Quo Sexual Harassment
Quid pro quo sexual harassment occurs when circumstances of employment are made contingent upon sexual favors. If you were offered a job, promotion, salary or improved work assignments in exchange for an inappropriate sexual act, seek legal counsel immediately. Our experienced attorneys can represent you if you were fired, demoted or subjected to unreasonable performance expectations based on your rejection of a sexual proposition.
Hostile Work Environment Harassment
When an employee is subjected to unwelcome sexual advances, including verbal or physical conduct, the employee may be working in a hostile environment. Other factors that may constitute sexual harassment due to a hostile work environment include the presence of sexual images in the workplace or sexual innuendo, such as inappropriate e-mail.
What exactly constitutes a hostile work environment is the subject of many legislative and judicial actions. At Westermann Sheehy Keenan Samaan & Aydelott, LLP, we stay up-to-date on recent legal actions, and carefully craft our cases based upon evidence and the law.
