Dedicated New York Employment Lawyers Protect Workers From Hostile Work Environments


Safeguarding employee safety and well-being

Everyone deserves respect and peace of mind while at work. When you are hired to perform a job for an employer, there is an expectation that the working environment will be free of harassment of any kind. Unfortunately, too many employers allow, and at times even promote, hostile work environments that employees must endure. Employees often feel trapped and fearful. The New York employment law attorneys at the law firm of Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth represent victims suffering in hostile work environments. We take legal action against employers to recover the compensation you deserve. If you are being harassed at work, do not sit in silence—contact our employment attorneys today for compassionate, confidential guidance.

What is considered a hostile work environment in New York?

There are many ways that a hostile work environment can manifest itself. Widespread offensive conduct in the workplace is never acceptable. New York law makes it illegal for companies to allow or engage in such conduct because it is an unfair abuse of power over employees. The main components to having a viable lawsuit against an employer for a hostile work environment are that the conduct must be offensive, severe and pervasive. Generally, a single isolated incident or comment would not be enough to justify a hostile work environment claim. Our New York City hostile work environment lawyers help you decide whether pursuing legal action against your employer is in your best interest. We help you put an end to the harassment.

The most common ways that people experience a hostile work environment include pervasive harassment based on:

  • Race

  • Sex

  • Ethnicity

  • Age

  • Disability

  • Sexual Orientation

  • Pregnancy
