Employment Discrimination

Numerous state and federal laws protect employees and prospective employees from discrimination on the basis of race, color, nationality, gender, religion, age, disability status, pregnancy or sexual orientation. It is illegal to treat an employee differently, to refuse to hire someone, or to create a hostile work environment because the employee or job applicant is a member of one of these protected groups.

If you were subjected to discrimination in the workplace, you have the right to take legal action and collect damage from those responsible.

We at Morelli Law Firm have handled employment discrimination cases throughout the country. Our attorneys know how to protect our clients' rights effectively and we are passionate about doing so.

In 2000, Benedict Morelli and Martha McBrayer represented five plaintiffs of minority backgrounds who claimed they were discriminated against because of their race at their workplace, NBC.

We successfully defeated NBC's motion for summary judgment. U.S. District Judge Shira Sheindlin began her order denying NBC's motion by saying, " Something is rotten in the offices of NBC."

After the order was issued, NBC quickly came to the negotiating table and we were able to resolve each of our plaintiffs' cases satisfactorily.

This case is not unique. Our attorneys have litigated on behalf of victims of discrimination against some of the largest and most powerful companies in the country. Our success rate is unparalleled, and our clients' interests are always paramount.
