Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
We represent people defending and bringing workplace harassment claims, giving us a unique perspective on the most expedient way to resolve sensitive matters while respecting client rights. We consult with employers on how to comply with new New York State and New York City anti-sexual harassment laws, including drafting compliant policies and providing trainings. Our attorneys also are available to investigate claims, or represent clients who are being investigated.
