Employment Discrimination

The Firm both defends employers and businesses, and pursues claims on behalf of individuals in employment discrimination cases involving race, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, age, national origin or disability.

We provide our clients guidance whether they have a claim under the Federal Civil Rights Act, the American with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the New York Human Rights Law. Our experienced attorneys routinely appear before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), New York State Division of Human Rights, Federal District Court and New York State Courts when representing our clients in employment discrimination matters.

Examples of employment discrimination include: Firing, Terminating, Demoting, Failing to Hire or Promote an Individual due to Race, National Origin, Gender, Age, Handicap, Disability, and/or Religion.

* Employment Discrimination also includes Sexual Harassment Claims resulting from Quid Pro Quo Discrimination and/or a Hostile Work Environment. Unwelcome Sexual Advances involving Verbal or Physical Conduct, Sexual Jokes, Slurs and Innuendoes are potential grounds for a Claim of Employment Discrimination.

Federal and State law have strict time requirements to bring a claim. Victims of employment discrimination should promptly seek legal guidance to assure that their claim, if valid, is timely made.

Whether you are an employer or business defending against such claims, or an individual bringing a claim, our experienced and capable attorneys will conduct an initial review of any claim or potential claim and advise you of your rights in a prompt, confidential manner with no cost or obligation on your part.
