Sexual Harassment in Employment
In the topic of sexual harassment, there is two main forms, quid pro quo and hostile environment. Quid pro quo is when an employer offers a benefit (vacation days, day off, raise, overtime) in exchange for the completion of a sexual task. Generally, when these types of offers are given and the offeror’s requests aren’t met the employee will be terminated. Another form of sexual harassment in employment is called a hostile environment. A hostile environment in employment occurs when your employer allows a co-worker or co-workers to use hostile language or harass you in general. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was put in place, in part, to prevent workers from being discriminated by their employer based on their gender.
This Civil Rights Act of 1964, prohibits quid pro quo harassment and/or create a hostile environment harassment. Therefore, opening up an opportunity for you to seek justice if you are a victim of sexual harassment in an employment setting. Our Staten Island sex discrimination attorneys are highly reputable and will fight to ensure you get compensation for your troubles as a victim of sexual discrimination.
Wage Differences Based on Gender

Our Staten Island sex discrimination attorneys will fight to the very end if you have a valid claim against your employer. The Equal pay act of 1963 has been passed for over 50 years now.

There are many ways you can be discriminated in the workplace based upon your sex such as being forced to complete sexual favors to keep your job, being talked to in a vulgar way by co-workers, or just as simply being paid less than your co-workers of the opposite sex, you deserve better. You shouldn’t have to worry about losing your job if you don’t sleep with your boss, you shouldn’t have to worry about being harassed vulgarly by your co-workers, and you most definitely shouldn’t have to be paid less for doing the same work just because of your gender.
