Ines Sainz and the New York Jets: Employer Liability for Third Parties?

By Andy Gruber and Matt Tait The recent story involving the New York Jets and the alleged harassment of Mexican sports reporter Ines Sainz has raised the issue of harassment in the workplace by non-employers. 

In Sainz’ situation, still under investigation, members of the Jets allegedly made cat calls and engaged in other boorish conduct towards Sainz as she watched a Jets practice.  Sainz may not have independent claims against the Jets for workplace harassment, but she may have claims against her employer. 

Federal law gives employees the right to bring harassment claims against their employers for the conduct of third parties, including customers and vendors.
