Helping you take action against workplace discrimination

When individuals in New York are interviewed, hired or terminated at a workplace, they believe that these employment decisions are based on their qualifications, experiences and work performance. However, in some unfortunate situations, employees can experience employment decisions that are not based on their qualities but rather characteristic traits that are protected by civil rights laws. Workplace discrimination could happen at any phase of employment, and it is important for employees to note that this is not legal and remedies are available to them.

Federal laws that are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ensure that there is an equal treatment of employees across the nation. In the state of New York, the State Division of Human Rights further enforces their rights. Despite having these enforcement agencies in place, discrimination in the workplace still occurs. Thus, the attorneys at Mitchell, Pollack & Associates, PLLC, are dedicated to assisting employees in the Westchester area protect these rights and take legal action.
