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.

Among many federal employment discrimination statutes are Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act.  Despite
these various protections,
unless there is an employment
agreement or collective
bargaining agreement, an
employer can refuse to hire,
or can fire, a worker for any
reason that is not unlawful.

  Employment discrimination
  lawsuits require evidence
that shows discriminatory practices, proof of motivation, or statistics suggesting a particular bias by the employer.  Employers
that discriminate rarely admit bias toward a specific group.

That's why I'll analyze not
only the employer's direct
statements, but also the
company's hiring and firing
decisions as well as other
trends.

An employee who was fired,
or who was not hired, due
                                       to unlawful employment
discrimination, must act
promptly to protect his or
her rights. It is thus
important, at the time of
the first consultation, that
we pinpoint the exact dates
of all of the discriminatory
acts.

    
   Did you know . . .

      - That the Age Discrimination in Employment Act 
     was designed to protect workers at least 40 years
     old?

     - Sometimes a defendant that is not actually one's
      employer can be sued as though it were the
      employer, if it maintains a large degree of control
      over plaintiff?
   
     -  In order to sue for most forms of employment
    discrimination under federal law, a charge must
    first be filed with the Equal Employment
   Opportunity Commission or a state agency such
   as the N.Y.S. Division of Human Rights?

     -  A person can be fired for the color of his tie but
     not the color of his skin?

Tip:  Employment Discrimination involves conduct that deals with the reason that a person was fired or was not hired.  In other words, to constitute actionable discrimination, the employer's decision to fire or not to hire must be "because of" the discriminatory mindset.
Don't sleep on your rights.    Time limits are short for filing a charge of employment discrimination.
