Understanding your rights in the workplace and how to protect them can be a challenge, but you can seek the assistance of an employment discrimination lawyer. At the Law Office of Yuriy Moshes, P.C., we work hard to help workers learn about their rights and how they might be able to receive compensation if they have been wronged by an employer. We will sit down with you and explain the process of employment discrimination and the legal remedies that may apply to your case.
Know Your Rights
Under the law, employers are expected to treat workers fairly, which includes dealing with discrimination issues in the workplace. If you feel that your employer, manager or fellow co-worker has wronged you, you may be able to seek compensation under the laws governing workplace discrimination.
What is Employment Discrimination?
The concept of employment discrimination covers an entire class of legal wrongs committed in the workplace or the hiring or firing process that may be addressed through the civil court system. This includes many forms of discrimination that are unfortunately common, including practices and behaviors that target workers because of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, or age. It also includes wrongs that have been committed because of a worker’s illness, disability or medical status. In certain states, such as New York and New Jersey, discrimination based on sexual orientation, marital status, or citizenship status is also illegal. If you believe that you have been the victim of this type of mistreatment in the workplace, then you should get in touch with an employment discrimination lawyer as soon as possible in order to review your options under local, state and federal laws.
How the Process Works
The most common goal in a discrimination case is to establish a pattern of behaviors or to provide evidence of an institutional bias. You can discuss your situation with us at our firm and outline your workplace issues or concerns, and we will explain what we feel are your best options. If we feel you have the basis for filing a discrimination claim, we will work tirelessly to obtain the award or settlement that you deserve.
