What can be done about the verbal and physical sexual harassment I've experienced on the job over the years?
I don't know what the current statute of limitations is for New York State or if a future one will change the current one - how far back does it go?
I have a list of experiences but some of them go back further than 10 years, some situations were more serious than others and I'm no longer employed by any of these employers.
Because of the strict word limit and formatting here I can't go into detail yet, but I can continue with comments below including the experiences within the current statute of limitations if there is anything that needs to be clarified and is allowed to be clarified here.
Thank you for your time.

The statute of limitations in New York State for sexual harassment is three years. If you have even one act that occurred within that period, however, then all the actions that occurred, even the ones that go back more than 10 years, will be timely. I would urge you, to the extent you have not done so already, to contact an experienced employment attorney to discuss your situation in more detail as soon as possible so as to make sure you can proceed on any timely claims.

If any of the sexual harassment you experienced occurred in the last 3 years within, an attorney in New York State may be able to bring a claim on your behalf to address what was done to you.
