Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and Bronx Employment Attorneys
At the Law Offices of Nussin S. Fogel, we work for the injured and their families. Not all the cases we handle arise from accidents, however, and we take the harm people suffer due to discrimination and unfair treatment at work very seriously. If you have been subjected to inappropriate touching, offensive language or other types of sexual harassment, we can apply the relevant laws, offer guidance and take strong legal action.
Women and men subjected to sexual harassment often feel intense emotional pain but are reluctant to report what is happening to them. As a victim, you may fear for your job and worry about retaliation. You can depend on our professional legal team to treat you with respect and take action, including taking your case to trial if that is what is required to win relief and justice for you.
Defending Workers' Rights and Dignity
Sexual harassment is not an isolated problem. It occurs in office environments, industrial and warehouse settings, in schools and elsewhere. If someone is harassing you, that person may have done the same to others and will likely continue if not held responsible for actions that are not only degrading but illegal, such as:
- Demanding sexual favors under threat of disciplinary action, demotion, firing or other consequences
- Making unwanted sexual advances, including physical contact or pressuring a co-worker for dates
- Making lewd, suggestive or sexually explicit comments
- Displaying or sharing pornography or other offensive material in the workplace
Reporting Sexual Harassment Is Important and Courageous
If you believe your right to work without being subjected to a hostile work environment is being violated, we encourage you to contact a knowledgeable New York City sexual harassment attorney today. Federal and state employment laws are in place to protect you against this type of treatment and from retaliation by your employer.
