Federal, state, and New York City laws prohibit workplace discrimination on the basis of protected categories. Employment discrimination occurs when employees are unfairly treated or harassed concerning hiring, promotions, compensation, layoffs, or forced retirement. Discrimination also occurs when it leads to a hostile work environment.

 

Federal, state, and New York City laws also recognize employer retaliation as a violation of worker rights. If you have engaged in a protected activity by complaining about discrimination, your employer cannot terminate your employment or take other adverse or negative action against you for those complaints of discrimination.

 

New York City has the strongest laws against worker harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. New York City’s anti-discrimination and anti-retaliation laws provide even more protection than the New York State laws against workplace misconduct. We can assist you with claims in New York State and in New York City.
