What is Sexual Harassment in the Workplace?

Sexual harassment in the workplace is a form of discrimination based on sex. It encompasses unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature that creates a hostile or offensive work environment. It is prohibited by federal and state laws, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the New York Human Rights Law.

If you are terminated in retaliation for reporting sexual harassment, you have legal rights:
