New York City Employment Discrimination – NYCHRC Lawyers

Employment discrimination can be seen in all types of businesses across New York City. Fortunately, there are attorneys who can offer assistance if you feel that you have experienced discrimination while working. Most employers cannot exhibit discrimination against employees based on several components, such as race, age, pregnancy, gender, and religion. Sexual orientation and national origin are also included in the discriminatory elements that employers have to abide by and can’t use as a reason to fire someone or not hire someone.

Domestic violence victims can’t be discriminated against by employers. They deserve an equal opportunity to gain employment just like someone who has not dealt with this kind of lifestyle. There are different laws that cities and counties have in addition to the federal discrimination guidelines that employers have to abide by regarding employees. With the assistance of an attorney who understands all of the discrimination laws in New York City, employees can receive the compensation that they deserve as well as the proper employment that they deserve.

Discrimination can take place before someone is hired for a position. An example would be an employer not hiring a potential employee based on that person’s race. Discrimination can also occur after the person is hired to work for the business if the employer decides to terminate employment because of an element that employees are protected against, such as gender or race. Employers are not to conduct any acts of discrimination when asking questions during the interview process, when determining a promotion or transfer, or when there are compensation issues at hand. These issues include the pay rate based on gender, religion, national orientation, or race. Employers are not to discriminate when choosing people to layoff or when making decisions about benefit or pay reductions.

There are a few examples to consider regarding employment discrimination that an attorney can examine and use when going to court if you feel that you have been met with this act while working for the employer.

Race:
Any kind of stereotyping or use of racial slurs in the place of employment can be seen as discrimination. Employees should be able to work in an environment where they don’t hear these statements or where they feel like they are isolated from other races. Other examples include a denial of a promotion based on race or being paid less than someone who is of another race.

Gender:
It is common for male employers to discriminate against women or those who identify themselves as women. An example of this kind of discrimination would be calling female employees names that represent ownership or flirting with female employees. Another way that employers can discriminate based on gender would be if males are promoted or are paid more money compared to females. It is also considered discrimination when females are unable to have their hours adjusted due to childcare or if they are pregnant while males are able to modify their hours for the same reasons.

National And Religious Origin:
This is a type of discrimination that has come to light in recent years because of the number of people who are looking for work and are from other countries. An example would be not hiring someone from another nation to work in a business that is owned by someone from a different country. A common example would be if an employer were to fire an employee who is an Arab simply because of terrorist threats in the country or if there have been arrests of people who are Arabic. The same type of discrimination can be exhibited based on religion. Examples include not allowing employees of a certain religion to participate in their celebrations by taking time off of work.

Other examples of discrimination that an attorney can offer assistance with include not hiring someone because the person might be seen as too old or too young. Employers can’t discriminate solely because a female is pregnant. Employees who are disabled are to have the same accommodations as others in the business and are protected from discrimination, especially if an employer denies the person leaving for doctor’s appointments or doesn’t install facilities that make it easier for the person to work. Employees are to be treated like humans in New York City and are protected against the Family and Medical Leave Act as well as other acts that have been put in place by the federal government as well as state and local governments.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
