Aggressive Advocacy in Sexual Harassment Claims throughout New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
Proven Employment Lawyer in New York City
Though great strides have been made to make employers aware of the prevalence and the devastating consequences of sexual harassment in the workplace, it’s still a serious problem, in New York and across the country. People in positions of power still seek sexual favors in exchange for workplace benefits or threaten/punish workers who won’t submit to sexual advances. Bosses and supervisors still encourage, condone or intentionally ignore workplace environments where sexual innuendo and impropriety are rampant. If you or someone you love has been a victim of sexual harassment on the job in the greater New York City metropolitan area, attorney Justin A. Zeller can help.

We’ll keep you fully informed and involved at all times, making certain you understand where you stand, what your options are and your prospects for success. We will immediately advise you of any developments in your case and will swiftly respond to your emails, text messages and phone calls.
Our Representation in Claims Alleging Sexual Harassment at Work
We protect the rights of women and men who have been subjected to sexual harassment on the job, handling claims involving:
- Quid pro quo sexual harassment—From the Latin phrase meaning “this for that,” quid pro quo sexual harassment involves an attempted exchange, either of sexual favors for a work-related benefit or the promise of or use of work-related punishment for failure to submit to sexual advances
- The creation of a hostile environment based on sex—This involves the creation of a work environment where sex, sexual innuendo and sexual themes are either pervasive or sufficiently severe to be perceived by a reasonable person as hostile and abusive. It typically involves encouraging, condoning, or allowing jokes, pictures, objects, emails and other inappropriate references to sex or sexual topics.
