In New York, employers are required to provide a safe work environment that is free of harassment, hostility or discrimination. It is not uncommon for employers and co-workers who are being accused of harassment and discrimination to try and attempt to distort the truth as to the facts of the case. When that happens, you need to know your rights and what constitutes as improper behavior.
Workers are protected against discrimination and retaliation by Title VII of the Federal Civil Rights Act, the New York State Human Rights Law, and the New York City Human Rights Law. These laws prohibit discrimination in employment on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and a number of other protected categories.
