Why workplace harassment victims may wait to speak out

In cases involving sexual harassment in New York workplaces, it may take a victim a long time to speak out about what happened. This may be because the person who commits the act may be in a position of power while the victim may be someone who society may look down upon or otherwise value less than others. Over time, such behavior may become commonplace and another part of the social order.

New York women still face sexual harassment

More than half of women working in advertising across the U.S. and who were surveyed by 4A have faced some form of sexual harassment on the job. The industry trade group released its preliminary findings on Aug. 11 and will release a full report later this year.

LGBTQ people lack legal protection against job discrimination

The impact of job discrimination is often intense for people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning community. This is because federal and many state laws do not offer questioning and transgender individuals protection from job discrimination. Thirty-one states do not offer inclusive protection. This includes New York, which only prohibits employment discrimination based on sexual orientation.

EEOC considers English-only rule to be discriminatory

Many New York residents who are searching for work do not speak English. This is especially true for recent immigrants. Because the immigrant population is increasing, some employers have added rules that require employees to only speak English in the workplace.
