We can assist you with any of the following:

  • Wage and hour disputes

Fighting back against your employer’s unjust and wrongful actions can be intimidating, but with our Rochester employment law attorneys on your side, you can trust that your best interests are being protected.

What Is Workplace Discrimination?

Both federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against employees based on certain protected classes.

In the state of New York, these protected classes include:

  • Race
  • Color
  • Creed
  • Age/perceived age
  • National origin
  • Citizenship/immigration status
  • Gender
  • Gender identity/expression
  • Sexual orientation
  • Marital/partnership status
  • Military status
  • Disability
  • Pregnancy
  • Caregiver status
  • Arrest/conviction record
  • Domestic violence/stalking/sex offense victim status

If you have been discriminated against or are the victim of harassment, including sexual harassment, you have grounds to take action against the liable party. The same is true if you were fired or retaliated against—including have benefits taken away or denied a promotion—on the basis of any protected class.
