What is Harassment/Hostile Work Environment? Find a New York City employment lawyer. 

Are you uncomfortable going to work because of the offensive behavior of people at work, whether that behavior is directed at you or others? Federal law prohibits harassment in the workplace based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), or disability. These laws apply to employers with more than 15 employees (more than 20 for harassment based on age).

Unlawful harassment is offensive conduct that you must put up with as a condition of working in a particular workplace. It also includes offensive conduct that is so intolerable or pervasive that reasonable people would conclude your workplace is intimidating, hostile or abusive.

The New York State and New York City human rights laws also prohibit harassment and expand the coverage of the federal laws to all employers with more than 4 employees, and in the case of age discrimination, to all employees over the age of 18, and include harassment based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
