Are you being sexually harassed by a customer or client? Noted NY Sexual harassment lawyer Jack Tuckner explains your rights.
Don’t quit. If you’re dealing with discrimination in the workplace, a hostile work environment, you’re being treated differently as a woman, a person of color, because of your age, because your disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, there are a number of protected categories under federal and almost every state’s law, that will protect you from being treated differently.
Quitting your job is just giving up and doing your employer a favor, and most of the time when you quit you’ll also be ineligible to even collect unemployment benefits, never mind being able to take your employer to court, which is near impossible once you’ve voluntarily resigned.
New York law already prohibits sexual orientation and gender identity discrimination, but it was not until this 2020 decision that federal law has included both of these categories of people in its definition of “sex” discrimination in employment and elsewhere. Now, NYC employers who discriminate against LGBTQ employees based on their sexual orientation or gender identities violate NY state, NY city and federal law. LGBTQ employees around the country can enforce their newfound rights through filing EEOC “charges” as well as through private lawsuits.
US Supreme Court has ruled that federal sex discrimination protections extend to gay and transgender workers, making it clear that employees cannot be fired under federal law simply because of their gender identity or sexual orientation.
