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.
Examples of employment discrimination include:
- 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.
