A Resource for NY Government Employees
NOW-NY is calling on women and men who currently and previously worked in government in Albany and throughout the state to speak out about their personal experiences with sexual harassment or assault while on the job through our new hotline at 518-362-7857 or submitting their story online at nownys.org.
This fall, NOW-NY launched a state-wide hotline for government employees to report sexual harassment in response to the wave of complaints coming out through the #MeToo movement and the lack of recourse available to survivors. There must be accountability for our elected leaders and those in positions of power so that sexual abuse, harassment, and assault are handled immediately and appropriately – not with secret agreements in forced arbitrations and with payoffs made with taxpayer funds.
For those of you in the New York City metropolitan area, we will soon be re-instigating our monthly Workplace Harassment Legal Clinics to provide free legal counseling to those in need. To get signed up for the next session, email us email@example.com for more information.
