The city, state and, in most cases, federal law each contain strong protections that prohibit any employer from discriminating against any employee on the basis of race, religion, color, age, national origin, citizenship status, gender (including sexual harassment), gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy, marital status, arrest or conviction record, status as a victim of domestic violence (including stalking and sex offenses), unemployment or credit history. This means an employer should not illegally treat an employee adversely or differently on the basis that the employee is a member of any of the above categories (including not granting equal pay as those outside of these protected classes who are at the same level of experience and qualifications). In these unfortunate circumstances it is important to choose legal counsel who will work with the the precise balance of sensitivity, understanding, advocacy, professionalism and a focus on results to help the parties move on. Our attorneys have represented both employees and employers with successful outcomes in these instances. Please contact us if you would like a free and confidential consultation.
