New York Sexual Harassment & Assault Lawyers

Cases regarding sexual harassment and assault have been increasingly prevalent in our society. This is mainly due to the bravery of those coming forward with the rise of the #MeToo movement and with landmark legislation such as the Adult Survivors Act.

If you are a survivor of sexual harassment or assault in your workplace — or you were fired due to retaliation following sexual harassment or assault — you could be entitled to compensation.

We understand it can be challenging to come forward after facing sexual harassment or assault, which is why you need someone in your corner who believes in you.

At Filippatos PLLC, our sexual harassment and assault lawyers work tirelessly to ensure you receive the protection you need, both personally and financially. We aim to hold your company and your harasser(s) accountable for the unlawful actions taken against you and protect your place within the company should you want to stay there.

Fighting Against Sexual Harassment & Assault in the Workplace

No matter the company’s size, some laws safeguard you from sexual harassment and assault in the workplace. The New York State and New York City Human Rights Laws apply to companies with four or more employees, while Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 covers employers with 15 or more employees. As of 2015, the state and local Human Rights Laws apply to all employers, no matter how many employees they have on their payroll. Additionally, domestic workers such as nannies and maids, as well as other independent contractors, now have protection under these laws.
