Some companies taking quicker action for sexual harassment claims

As more and more individuals come forward as victims of sexual misconduct in the workplace, many other people may find themselves feeling the courage to do the same. Reporting sexual harassment can be difficult for a number of reasons, but New York residents may want to remember that they do not have to stand quietly and accept mistreatment. Filing a report with superiors may be a beneficial first step.

Higher-ups do not always address sexual harassment properly

Dealing with any type of harassment in any environment can be difficult. When the scenario involves sexual harassment in the workplace, it may seem even more appalling that such acts are occurring in a place that should promote professionalism. Unfortunately, as too many New York residents already know, this type of situation is not uncommon.

Each person certainly has conditions that cause him or her to feel uncomfortable. Any type of undesired behaviors directed at people can easily cause discomfort and sometimes fear. Unwanted sexual advances can often result in these feelings, and unfortunately, sexual harassment rampantly leads employees to feel unsafe in their workplaces.

New paid leave policy may bring relief to New York families

If you can't afford to take off work, you are in the same boat with many in New York. This is why you dread getting sick or when someone in your family falls ill. However, it may be that a situation is imminent, and you will have to take some time to get your family through it. It could be something tragic like the terminal illness of a loved one or joyous like the impending birth or adoption of a child.

Whistleblowers may be compensated under Federal False Claims Act

When a company fails to properly handle its financial obligations, a myriad of issues could arise. In cases where companies cause the federal government to cover costs that the companies themselves should have paid, they may be violating the law. The Federal False Claims Act holds companies responsible for defrauding governmental programs. If an individual believes that a company is carrying out this type of fraud, that person may file a claim.
