Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Laws

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is the primary law under which federal discrimination lawsuits are filed. This law prohibits employers from discriminating against workers based on sex, race, religion, and national origin. At the state level, the New York Human Rights Law also bars employers from discriminating against workers. These laws additionally protect workers from being retaliated against for complaining about perceived discrimination.

Sexual harassment is recognized as a form of sex discrimination. That includes unwanted sexual advances, requesting sexual favors, sexually motivated physical actions, as well as other physical or verbal conduct that is sexual in nature. Harassment is generally categorized into two types of behavior:

Quid pro quo harassment covers situations in which a supervisor tries to get a worker to accept sexual advances in exchange for a tangible employment action, such as a promotion or to avert the threat of being fired.

Hostile environment harassment, on the other hand, refers to circumstances in which sexually harassing conduct is so severe and pervasive that it creates a hostile workplace. This category encompasses a broad array of behavior, such as repeated sexual innuendo and other off-color remarks, unwelcome touching, or pornographic displays, along with leering, whistling, or other suggestive actions.

The law prohibits employer retaliation against an employee who complains about sexual harassment.
