If you’re being sexually harassed, subjected to unwelcome sexual attention, a hostile work environment due to your sex – up until April 2018, you wouldn’t be covered if you weren’t a W-2 employee.
Glamour Magazine for its Solidarity Issue of June/July 2018 reached out to Jack Tuckner, Esq. with the question — How should the average person handle sexual harassment at work?
Even if there is only one employee, one 1099 employee and that’s you, and you are being sexually harassed, you can fight back. Also under the same new revised law, effective July 2018, mandatory arbitration will no longer be mandatory for sexual harassment claims in New York.
If you are being sexually harassed and you work for an employer in New York, it doesn’t matter now how small your employer is. Even if there is only one employee, and you’re that employee, and you’re experiencing unwanted sexual attention – any kind of sexualizing conduct, or sexist hostility – you can now hold your employer accountable. And, if you prevail, you are entitled to your attorney fees for holding their feet to the fire.
By Jack Tuckner, Esq. You know, the whole hashtag #metoo movement – reckoning, awakening – it’s about time, super important….
If you are a nurse and you are being sexually harassed by patients, its still illegal sexual harassment.
If you are being sexually harassed in the workplace and you work for a tiny mom-and-pop employer with let’s say 3 employees, what do you do?
“Is it sexual harassment if my boss stares at me all day?” By Jack Tuckner Esq. Yes, its sexual harassment…
If you work anywhere in New York and you’re experiencing unwelcome sexual attention in the workplace, it’s now illegal, even if you work for a tiny company and you’re the only employee.
Employees in the state of New York have several avenues for filing a sexual harassment complaint. Civil rights attorney Jack Tuckner writes about the available options.
