Protecting The Rights Of Victims Of Discrimination
Being discriminated against or harassed due to your race, nationality, gender, age, disability, religion, or sexual orientation is one of the most emotionally troubling and challenging events in one’s life. In the most serious cases, employment discrimination or harassment can have long term effects on your mental and emotional well-being. In addition, when you are discriminated against or harassed at work, whether by your employer, a supervisor, or a co-worker, there can also be devastating economic consequences, including termination, missed promotions, lost wages and benefits, or the denial of employment.
Discrimination In The Workplace
Employment discrimination and harassment are illegal under both New York State and federal law. It is also illegal for an employer, supervisor, or co-worker to retaliate against you for complaining about, or taking some other type of action, to address workplace harassment or discrimination, whether directed towards you or someone else. While New York State and federal law provide comprehensive protection against all types of discrimination or harassment in the workplace, there are often many pre-requisites and important deadlines that you need to be aware of before you can take advantage of your legal rights. Some of these deadlines are as short as ninety (90) days after you have suffered an act of discrimination or harassment at work. It is very important that you contact an experienced attorney like the lawyers at The Jon Louis Wilson Law Office so that you can take full advantage of your legal rights, prevent future employment discrimination or harassment, and seek full compensation for all of your losses and damages.
