Bronx Employment Discrimination

The Bronx employment discrimination attorneys of Phillips & Associates are dedicated to providing the highest quality representation to victims of employment discrimination. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act and New York State laws protect individuals from all different types of workplace discrimination, including sexual harassment, sex/gender discrimination, and retaliation for complaints of discrimination/harassment. Policies and practices in the workplace should be neutral with regard to race, religion, and national origin. Like gender, these are protected characteristics that cannot form the basis of adverse employment decisions. All employees must be treated equally in matters of hiring, firing, compensation, layoffs, promotions, job training, working conditions, benefits, and other privileges. This means employers cannot refuse to hire or promote you just because you are pregnant, or deny you leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act. Our workplace discrimination attorneys handle cases in the Bronx and the New York City area. Call today and speak to a discrimination attorney at (866) 229-9441.

History of the Bronx

The Bronx was home to the Siwanoy and Lenape Indians before Dutch settlers took over in 1639. Jonas Bronck, a Swedish sea-captain from the Netherlands, settled on the mainland with a small group of Dutch, German, and Danish servants. The Indians left the area soon after 1700, giving way to the English and first black inhabitants. The 1800s brought Irish and German emigrants who abandoned severe famines and failed revolutions to pursue the American Dream. Home of the New York Yankees, including Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, and Mickey Mantle, the Bronx offers tourists and residents a magic slice of American pie. After the Second World War, the Bronx offered rent control apartments and public housing to tenants displaced by Manhattan’s slum clearing. The borough’s preservation of affordable housing and attractive rents has drawn 1.4 million residents. The diverse population of blacks, Latin Americans, and Asians has grown to include Koreans, Vietnamese, Indians, Pakistanis, Cubans, Jamaicans, Russians, and Albanians. The Bronx was awarded the designation of “All-American City” in 1997.

Look For Help if You Are a Victim of Discrimination

Phillips & Associates exclusively practices employment discrimination law. It has established a reputation as one of New York’s top workplace discrimination law firms. Sexual harassment and discrimination is illegal and can lead to a hostile work environment. We have helped clients in the Bronx and New York recover damages for unfair or inappropriate treatment at work. We understand it is frightening to complain about discrimination when you think your job is on the line. Victims often ask “Who else would hire someone of my age or with my disability?” But laws such as the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibit age and disability discrimination and provide for legal recourse against employers who violate these rules. Our experienced Bronx employment discrimination lawyers can explain your legal options and help you file a complaint with the EEOC or Division of Human Rights, government bodies responsible for enforcing antidiscrimination laws. We have successfully handled cases, recovering substantial compensation for our clients through settlement, mediation, or trial. Our consultation is free and there is no fee unless we recover.
