Protecting yourself against workplace discrimination

| May 4, 2016 | Workplace Discrimination |


In a perfect world, workers in New York and throughout the United States could work in safe working environments, free of abuse, harassment and discrimination. Unfortunately, humans are not always kind to their fellow man and woman, and workplace discrimination exists.

Workplace discrimination may take many forms. It includes, but it is not limited, to race discrimination, age discrimination, gender discrimination, religious discrimination and wage discrimination. There are both federal and state laws in place to protect an employee’s rights and ensure that he or she works in an environment free of bias and discrimination.

Since 1989, the law offices of Mitchell Pollack & Associates PLLC have been serving the tri state area in individual, family, corporate and business law. Our team has two convenient locations in Tarrytown, New York and Mahwah, New Jersey. We are capable of handling all sizes of cases, whether it involves an individual employee, an entrepreneur, or a business involved in complex litigation. We strive to provide personalized relationships with all our clients, as well as impeccable and individualized service to suit their needs.

Whether it is litigation in state court, federal court, or a matter that may be resolved through mediation or arbitration, it is crucial to have a strong legal team on your side to protect your interests and to fight to obtain the results you seek and deserve. The importance of protecting yourself against employment discrimination cannot be overstated, and addressing the problem today may help your coworkers in the future as well.
