New York Sexual Harassment
Under New York sexual harassment law, it is unlawful to harass an individual based on their sex. Unwelcome sexual advances, touching, sexual jokes, sexual innuendo and any other sexual conduct that creates a hostile work environment is unlawful.
Nowadays, sexual harassment can be contained in electronic form and can include sexually offensive statements in an e-mail, instant message, blackberry message, Facebook, Twitter or MySpace posting. We have recently handled just such cases.
It used to be that the sexual behavior had to be severe and pervasive to rise to the level of sexual harassment. Now, because of a Law Offices of Louis Ginsberg, P.C court victory in this area, under the New York City Human Rights Law, a victim of sexual harassment no longer has to show the sexual harassment was severe and pervasive.
Now, a victim need only demonstrate that the sexual harassment was unwelcome. This makes it much easier for victims of sexual harassment to win.
