Does an employment discrimination claim have a time limit?

New York seeks to legally provide equal opportunities for workers, despite differences in gender, race, religion, age and political beliefs. Regardless, some New York companies may not have the same goals. When employees encounter these exclusive policies and believe they are victims of employment discrimination, labor law and civil rights provide the opportunity to file a discrimination claim as soon as possible after experiencing discriminatory treatment.

What should New Yorkers know about ERISA and retirement plans?

New York employees should be aware of their employee rights, particularly their right to an Employee Retirement Income Security Act and other retirement plans. Retirement plans assure that workers have something to look forward to when they finally hang up their boots and enjoy the fruits of their hard work.

Gender discrimination case could affect women across the country

Workplace discrimination can take many forms. Many New Yorkers are familiar with the obvious cases of racial and gender discrimination, but other forms of employment discrimination occur frequently, including against pregnant women. One recent case of alleged pregnancy discrimination could send ripples throughout the country's workplaces and determine how much protection the federal 1978 Pregnancy Discrimination Act and state laws offer women in today's workforce.

Making sure sexual harassment cases are handled with sensitivity

Many things have improved in terms of equality and gender sensitivity in the workplace, but there are still some illegal practices that fall through the cracks. Sexual harassment is one of them. Despite labor laws that prohibit sexual harassment and discrimination, some workers still feel that they are in a hostile workplace. Our New York law firm is more than willing to pursue justice on behalf of our clients.

What should New York workers know about employer retaliation?

New Yorkers are passionate about many things, including their sports teams and their civil rights, especially when these rights are violated in the workplace. It is not uncommon for a New York worker to voice concern when an employer is doing something that tramples on employee labor rights, such as filing a complaint against the violations. However, even if the problem is sorted out, some employers do not appreciate being forced to comply and in return subject their workers to retaliation. Workers should know their options if or when this kind of situation arises.
