Filing Employment Discrimination Lawsuits

When employees encounter discrimination in the workplace, they can enter mediation or negotiations with their employers to resolve their differences outside the courtroom. But if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached through amicable means, it then becomes necessary to file an employment discrimination lawsuit. A New York employment discrimination lawsuit gives our clients the legal means to recover monetary losses caused by unfair or discriminatory treatment on the job. This mistreatment can take many forms such as sexual harassment, discrimination based on race, and treatment based on other physical traits. We have years of experience mediating and litigating employment discrimination cases and can assist you in New York City sexual harassment lawsuits.

Reasons to file an employment discrimination lawsuit

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, an employment discrimination victim could suffer losses in a number of ways including the following:

  • Unequal pay or compensation due to discriminatory employment practices
  • Being denied a job despite qualifications because of age, race, or other personal traits
  • Being forced to resign from a job because of unwanted sexual advances or a hostile work environment affecting job performance
  • Wrongful termination or other retaliatory measures in response to a discrimination complaint or legal action filed by the victim
  • Being passed over for raises or promotions primarily because of workplace discrimination

Successful litigation of Discrimination and Sexual Harassment lawsuits

Besides filing a discrimination lawsuit in instances of general discrimination, such as based on age, gender, sexual orientation or race, we are also able to file a sexual harassment lawsuit to help clients who have been sexually harassed. The courts consider all of the facts and circumstances surrounding the offensive conduct or unfair employment policies to determine if discrimination laws were broken.
