Employment discrimination based on factors like age, race, national
origin, gender, pregnancy, religion, and
disability violate federal and state law.
Before a lawsuit can be filed, federal law
requires that a charge must first be filed
with the Equal Employment Opportunity
Commission. Charges may also be filed with
a state agency like NYS Division of Human
Rights. State-law requisites significantly
differ from Federal provisions. Time limits
for such filings are 180 days, which most
states extend to 300 days, and complaints
with the Division of Human Rights have a
one-year limit. Make sure to have your case
evaluated early. If you're running out of time, call me now.
