What can you do if you're the victim of sexual harassment at work? What evidence do you need to prove sexual harassment? How can you increase your chances of receiving a fair settlement? Charles Joseph, a graduate of NYU Law, has over two decades of experience defending victims of sexual harassment. He shares his advice on how to win your sexual harassment case in this video.
In New York, employees benefit from additional sexual harassment protections that can make a difference in your case. The New York State Human Rights Law (NYSHRL) protects workers across the state, and the New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL) offers some of the strongest protections in the country.
Under federal law, victims of sexual harassment have to prove that the harassment was "severe or pervasive." However, under NYC law, victims of sexual harassment must only show that they were treated "less well" than their coworkers. This law upholds the rights of people to work in harassment-free environments. In New York City, employees harmed by sexual harassment may have an easier time proving their case.
