Putting A Stop To Workplace Harassment
Experiencing harassment at work can be incredibly stressful. Nobody should have to dread going to their job because of ongoing harassment. Nobody should have to choose between their job and feeling safe and supported at work.
At my firm, the Law Offices of Yale Pollack, P.C. in Long Island, I represent employees throughout New York City facing harassment on the job. I understand the stress and pressure you’re facing, and I will work hard to help you resolve the situation. Drawing on more than 15 years of employment law experience, I understand how to stand up for employee rights, including going to court when needed. I am often able to resolve these cases favorably outside of court, in a way that minimizes stress and headaches.
Understanding Your Rights When It Comes To Harassment
You have the right to a workplace free from illegal harassment. You also have the right to report harassment and take legal action without facing retaliation.
There are many types of harassment. Sexual harassment is a big one. Illegal harassment can also be based on race, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or other protected grounds.
Harassment might involve:
- Jokes or comments
- Unwanted touch
- Inappropriate posters, photos or videos
- Sexual advances
- Requests for sexual favors
- Pressure to engage in sexual activity in order to get a promotion or other favorable job opportunity
You shouldn’t have to endure any of this behavior at work. I can help you protect yourself and your livelihood.
