NYC Workplace Harassment & Discrimination Laws
In New York, workplace discrimination and harassment violations are governed by various local, state, and federal laws.
Some important local and state laws that prohibit workplace harassment and discrimination in workplaces in New York City, for example, include:
- New York State Human Rights Law (NYSHRL): The NYSHRL prohibits discrimination and harassment based on several protected characteristics, including race, color, national origin, sex, age, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and marital status, among others. This law applies to employers with 4+ employees.
- New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL): The NYCHRL provides broader protections than the NYSHRL, as it extends to any employer with at least 1 employee. The law prohibits discrimination and harassment at work based on a wide range of protected characteristics. In addition to the aforementioned protected classes under the NYSHRL, the NYCHRL also prohibits workplace discrimination or harassment based on caregiver status, credit history, and unemployment status.
