Manhattan Employment Discrimination

Phillips & Associates is a workplace discrimination law firm dedicated to serving victims of discrimination in the workplace in Manhattan, and throughout the greater New York City area. Our firm is dedicated to zealously representing the victims of sexual harassment and discrimination. We have successfully represented clients facing discrimination in a wide variety of settings across the employment spectrum.

EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION IS ILLEGAL IN MANHATTAN

Discrimination is generally defined as the unlawful or unequal treatment of an individual based upon an immutable characteristic. Discrimination can take many forms, and can be based upon any number of characteristics. These can include discrimination based upon: age, criminal conviction, disability, gender, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, and sexual orientation. Additionally, sexual harassment can constitute unlawful discrimination, as federal law considers it to be a form of gender based discrimination.

Federal laws protect employees against discrimination under the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other statutes. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is the main governmental agency charged with upholding these various federal protections. In many cases, employees who have faced discrimination will have to first file a claim with the EEOC before proceeding any further.

The New York City Human Rights Law also provides additional protections for employees working in Manhattan, especially for those working with employers that may not be covered by federal laws.

Workplace discrimination can happen at any time in the employment process, including during the application phase, and in relation to decisions regarding hiring, firing, promotions, and layoffs. If you believe you have been a victim of workplace discrimination, you should not hesitate to contact an employment discrimination attorney.

RETALIATION IS ILLEGAL

Many people are afraid to complain of discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace for fear of retribution. The law prohibits your employer from retaliating against you because of a complaint you made regarding discrimination or sexual harassment. In addition to our mission of fighting discriminatory and harassing behavior in the workplace, our office can assist you if you feel you have been unfairly punished or retaliated against for alleging violations of this kind against your employer.

WE FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHTS IN THE WORKPLACE

The experienced employment discrimination attorneys at Phillips & Associates are well aware of the difficulties associated with making an allegation in the workplace. However, workplace discrimination can undermine your job performance and personal life, as well as damage your sense of well-being and dignity. At Phillips & Associates, we are committed to seeking justice on behalf of our clients, and obtaining the outcomes they deserve. If you have been subject to unfair treatment on the basis of a protected characteristic, or believe you have been subject to sexual harassment, you may have grounds to pursue legal remedies against your employer. However, the statute of limitations to bring job-related claims is short, so you should pursue your claim as soon as possible to avoid having it barred.
