What is Sexual Harassment?

Sexual harassment knows no gender. The victim or perpetrator of the harassment may be a man or a woman. It can happen in the office or outside at an office holiday party. Sexual harassment comes in many forms, all of which are prohibited under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This federal law includes protection against gender discrimination of all types.

How Do I Know if I am an Exempt or Nonexempt Employee?

Most jobs are governed by the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). One of the many benefits protected by FLSA is the right to overtime pay. However, not all jobs governed by the FLSA can receive this benefit. Employees with these types of jobs are “exempt” from FLSA overtime rules. An exempt employee, while entitled to their base salary paid on time for each pay period, is not entitled to be paid for overtime work.

What To Do If You Are Being Sexually Harassed

A question we receive frequently is what should someone do if they are being sexually harassed at work.  Being sexually harassed is a traumatizing experience that victims often bottle up out of fear of speaking out against a superior or out of embarrassment. 

            There are a few general suggestions that apply to most sexual harassment situations:

  • Check Your Employee Handbook:  Some companies have handbooks which dictate what to do if you have been sexually harassed by a co worker or superior. 
  • Go to your HR department (if one exists): this seems like common sense but, more often than not, victims of sexual harassment do not go to HR.  The reasons we commonly hear are “they are on the boss’s side” or “they will retaliate against me”.

Animal Rights Activist and Town Employees Sue Town of Hempstead for Corruption and Abusing Animals

A well known animal rights activist Diane Madden and three Town of Hempstead animal shelter employees Dolores Stormo, Nancy Giris, and Wendy Cariello retained our firm to sue the Town and its supervisor for creating a hostile work environment at the animal shelter that punished people who dared speak out against its totalitarian supervisor.   The town and its agents violated the Plaintiffs' first amendment rights.  For Madden, this is not the first time she has been down this path, this lawsuit is eerily reminiscent of a prior lawsuit she brought and won against the Town.  This behavior is unacceptable from our elected officials and the worst part is the defenseless animals are the real victims here.  Media links as follows:
