Sexual Harassment and Gender Discrimination in New York: What is it Not?

1h 28m

Created on June 11, 2020





The #MeToo era has inaugurated a long-overdue acknowledgment of sexual harassment and gender discrimination. But one result of this necessary conversation is that many people are unaware that these terms are not mere conversational English, but have specific legal definitions. On top of that, New York City and State have laws that go further than federal law. 

This presentation, taught by Valerie Ferrier, Partner, head of the Labor & Employment Practice Group at Martin Clearwater & Bell, LLP is directed primarily at employer-side attorneys, and will clarify what is, and just as importantly, what is not, unlawful sexual harassment and gender discrimination in New York.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Evaluate the relevant terminology used in this area of the law
  2. Review New York City and State sexual harassment and gender discrimination laws, and how they compare with federal protections
  3. Define sexual harassment, gender discrimination, hostile work environment, and retaliation under federal, state, and City law
  4. Analyze examples of what is not sexual harassment and gender discrimination
