Several laws exist to ensure the protection and fair treatment of employees in the workplace. In New York, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the New York State Human Rights Law, and the New York City Human Rights Law all offer employees protection against discrimination, which comes in various forms, including, among others, race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, and genetic information.
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is tasked with enforcing Title VII. The New York State Division of Human Rights enforces the New York State Human Rights Law, and the New York City Commission on Human Rights enforces the New York City Human Rights Law.
We understand the challenges an employee faces when discrimination occurs in the workplace. Often, the victim is hesitant to say anything for fear of retribution. It is wise to contact a lawyer as soon as discrimination becomes apparent. Our attorneys will work to ensure you are protected while fighting on your behalf.
