New York Attorneys With Experience On All Sides Of Workplace Discrimination Issues
Many different municipal, state and federal laws and regulations protect employees from discrimination. Some of the main regulations in this area of law include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the New York State Human Rights Law (NYSHRL) and the New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL). Generally, these laws state that employers may not discriminate against employees when hiring, assigning work, granting promotions or discharging a worker. They specifically protect against discrimination based on an employee’s:
- Race and Color
- Military Status
- Creed or Religion
- Sexual Orientation
- Country of Natural Origin
- Marital Status
- Family Status
- HIV/AIDS Status
With our detailed understanding of these and other discrimination issues from both the employee’s and employer’s perspectives, we skillfully pursue cases for clients throughout New York.
