At Mitchell Pollack & Associates PLLC, we offer skilled, knowledgeable legal representation to people who have suffered employment discrimination based on age, race or other protected classifications. Our Bergen County and Westchester County employment discrimination attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of employees located throughout the Tri-state area.
Providing Representation For All Discrimination Claims
Employment discrimination laws aim to prevent discrimination based on:
- Race and national origin
- Age and disability
- Gender and sexual orientation
Equal treatment of employees is governed by federal law and enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). In New York, these rights are also enforced by the State Division of Human Rights; in New Jersey, the Office of the Attorney General handles all discrimination complaints. Depending on the circumstances of your claim, you may also be protected by other statutes. With more than 25 years of legal experience, we understand the specific laws that may apply in your situation.
We Will Help You Determine If You Have A Case
Discrimination may have occurred if you have suffered based on your inclusion in one of the protected classes. Examples of prohibited, discriminatory conduct include bias in:
- Hiring practices
- Promotion and compensation
- Job assignment
Employment discrimination may have occurred if the employee experiences retaliation, including harassment and termination, for complaining about misconduct or exposing a company’s wrongdoing (also known as whistleblowing).
