How can you know if what you are experiencing is harassment?

New York workers have the right to work in an environment that is free from harassment, mistreatment and discrimination of any kind. There are both state and federal laws in place that protect individuals against these things, yet it still happens in many different types of workplaces. As an employee, you may need to know about the behaviors that qualify as harassment or discrimination.

Employers can protect themselves via sexual harassment prevention

In New York and throughout the United States, sexual harassment and how it impacts employees has taken center stage in the news regarding how the issue has been ignored for so long. Employers are commonly held responsible for the behavior of people in the workplace and are forced to deal with lawsuits and take steps to tighten up policies so it does not happen again. This is when it is imperative that employers understand the minimum standards to prevent sexual harassment so they are shielded in case allegations do crop up. Having legal assistance in these cases is not just important for the victim, but for the employer as they might be blameless.

Lawsuit filed for illegal workplace discrimination over sexuality

In New York and across the nation, people are granted greater freedom to express themselves without hiding their sexual preferences for fear of a negative impact in the workplace. It has become easier to maintain a job or to gain employment regardless of their sexual orientation. Still, the problem of illegal workplace discrimination over a person's sexuality has not gone away. It still happens and employment claims are filed to seek justice for violations of their civil rights. With any form of workplace discrimination, discussing the case with a lawyer can yield information on how to proceed.

Employment claims for discrimination based on criminal history

New Yorkers who have problems in their past will inevitably be concerned that they will impact them in the future. For those who have a criminal history, getting a job can be a challenge. However, it is important to note that illegal workplace discrimination against those who have a criminal history can warrant a legal filing. Mistakes do not mean that a person does not have the right to be treated fairly and within the law. Understanding important points about how those with criminal records are protected when they seek employment or already have employment can help when there is a belief that discrimination has taken place.
