Challenging discrimination in the workplace
Employment should be based upon your skills, knowledge and experience, not on arbitrary characteristics that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Under the New York Human Rights Law and comparable federal statues, employers are prohibited from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, pay, disciplinary action and termination on the basis of:

-Race
-Gender
-Pregnancy
-Age
-Religion
-Nationality
-Disability
-Sexual orientation*

*Not applicable under federal law

Fighting against Sexual Harassment
You do not have to put up with unwelcome sexual advances, sexist comments, or degrading images and emails at your workplace. Sexual harassment creates an unpleasant unemployment atmosphere and perpetuates the impression that gender relegates you to a lower status and position. Although women are most commonly targeted, men can be victims of sexual harassment as well. Responsible parties can include coworkers, supervisors, executives, human resources personnel and even the corporate entity itself. Harassment can take the form of inappropriate physical contact, visual images, email transmissions, derogatory statements or unwanted advances. We advocate for your right to work in a professional environment free from harassment.
