Is this sexual harassment?

2 Answers. Asked on Mar 11th, 2017 on Labor and Employment - New York
More details to this question:
My supervisor, a man, referred to my nipples as "highbeams" and said he could not stop looking at them, he also exclaimed that they were full and perky. He did this in front of two of my fellow associates and it left the group of us feeling awkward. I was embarrassed and my therapist told me that this is indeed sexual harassment. After reporting the supervisor, no action was taken by my management team. I cannot afford a lawyer and was also wondering if there was other legal representation I could look into. Thank you.

Employment lawyers work on contingency.  However, proof is an issue, as the two people present may be unwilling to back you up publicly.  Also, you have no damages that are clear, like termination.  That said, call around if you want to sue.

Generally, sexual harassment is unwanted comments or conduct of a sexual nature.  Your situation sounds like it can be sexual harassment.  You really should contact an attorney.  Many attorneys, like me and my firm, work on a contigency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we get you some form of compensation.  Feel free to contact me (212) 248-0120.  I hope this helped.

Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests.
