Employment Law Disputes

Most employees are hired at-will, meaning they can be terminated for any reason not prohibited by law. However, Federal, New York State and New York City laws protect employees and job seekers from discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, gender, age, disability and pregnancy. New York State law also prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and marital status. If you live in NYC or any of the five boroughs, the law is even more expansive, covering gender identity, citizenship status, criminal history and credit history. If you believe you have a claim of workplace discrimination, please contact our office today.
