Sexual Harassment Law

Sexual harassment is prohibited by federal, state, and city laws in New York. The behavior does not need to be severe or pervasive in order to be sexual harassment.

Federal and New York law recognize two forms of sexual harassment:

  • Quid pro quo
  • Hostile workplace

Quid pro quo harassment is telling a person they will be promoted if they grant sexual favors to a supervisor. Hostile workplace covers unwelcome verbal or physical sexual conduct that interferes with the ability to perform job duties or creates an intimidating environment in the workplace.

Common examples of sexual harassment include:

  • Granting sexual favors as a basis for employment decisions

  • Sexual comments

  • Pressure for dates

  • Jokes and innuendo

  • Sexual gestures or touching

  • Sexual graffiti

Employees may hesitate to report sexual harassment out of fear of retaliation. You should know that it is unlawful for an employer to retaliate against an employee for opposing an unlawful discriminatory practice or making a charge of sexual harassment. As long as the employee believes that the employer’s conduct is unlawful, the law offers protection against retaliation from the employer.
