Types of Discrimination We Can Help You Sue for
Do not suffer in silence because you are unsure whether you are experiencing employment discrimination. Various forms of discrimination are unlawful under state and federal laws, such as those enforced by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). However, keep in mind that not every challenge at the workplace amounts to discrimination.
There are many unlawful forms of discrimination based on a variety of factors, such as:
- Racial background
- Nationality or origin
- Family responsibilities
- Political affiliation
- Sexual orientation
- Religious beliefs
Also, employment discrimination lawyers help people who face retaliation for opposing discrimination in the workplace under LAB §740. Sometimes your employer can subject you to retaliation because you are against the discriminatory behaviors you have witnessed. Some of the forms of retaliation may include demotion or transfer to an undesirable department.
Even though the move may be illegal, it is never easy to fight. An employment discrimination lawyer at our firm who handles cases on Long Island can help you with your fight.
An Employment Discrimination Lawyer Can Protect You from Retaliation
The main aim of employment discrimination lawyers is to pursue justice and compensation for the victims. Our attorneys help those who experience discriminatory practices before and during employment, including during a promotion. Our team will also:
- Help protect you against discriminatory behaviors that lead to the premature termination of jobs
- Help protect you from unlawful practices that result from the taking of protected leave from work
- Represent employees facing retaliation by their employers
Typically, attorneys base their arguments on state and federal laws, such as those under LAB §201-D. Hence, they will ensure that you get fair treatment as an employee and that employers also comply with workplace laws and regulations.
As an employee, you will understand your rights if you seek the assistance of an employment discrimination lawyer from our firm. If you experience discrimination or are unsure whether your employer discriminates against you, the team at Morelli Law Firm can help you figure it out.
As a result, you will get legal advice and even gain confidence when filing a charge with the New York-based office of the EEOC.
We Can Help You File Your Discrimination Action
Always file your employment discrimination claim with the government agency that has jurisdiction. At the state level, it is the New York Department of Labor. The agency will carry out an investigation and provide a suitable remedy.
However, in some instances, the solution may not be enough. An employee can then proceed with a private lawsuit that must also go through the government agency or other similar organizations.
Proving discrimination can be a daunting task, but success is still achievable. For example, you can always provide documents (e.g., employment contracts) or verbal communications (e.g., statements made in an interview.) Also, documents like human resource records can be essential in supporting your claim. There are plenty of other forms of evidence that may be relevant to your application.
The first step to filing employment discrimination is gathering evidence that can prove your case. An employment discrimination lawyer at our firm can help you collect all the information needed for you to win your Long Island case.
Tips for Hiring an Experienced Employment Discrimination Attorney
Do not rush to hire any lawyer. Consider the qualities necessary for an attorney to handle your case. You want an attorney knowledgeable of federal and state employment laws, an office with positive reviews, and the availability of a team of professionals and legal assistants to help with the legal processes.
Look for an attorney who can create time for you and discuss all the nitty-gritty of your case. A good lawyer understands your pain and commits to finding a remedy to your uncertainties. Having an attorney on your side is an assurance that you have an ally to assist you in your case.
