It is illegal under federal legislation and the laws of New York to discriminate against employees on the basis of race or color, national origin or religious beliefs, gender or sexual orientation, age or disability. This includes discrimination in hiring, pay, promotions, discipline, work assignments or harassing behavior, as well as termination or retaliation for filing claims.
But employers are crafty about disguising the discrimination or justifying unequal treatment by fabricating “performance issues.” Suing for damages requires documentation, and that usually means staying on the job and enduring more abuse. If you have to suffer, you need a lawyer who will make it worth your while.

EEOC Claims and Other Legal Remedies
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) was created to handle employment discrimination claims under the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It also hears cases brought under the Age Discrimination Act and Americans with Disabilities Act.

He is backed by a skilled team of lawyers and paralegals who help draft the complaint and shine the light on the discrimination you have suffered.
If you wish to stay at your job, we can represent you in these confidential negotiations or mediation via the EEOC. If the employer fights the claim or offers unacceptable reparations, Mr. Sack can advise on the best venue for your specific case.
One of Our Many Success Stories: We represented an employee of Tiffany & Co., the only African-American among a group of 15 engravers. After 10 years with the company, operations were relocated from New York City to Parsippany, New Jersey. He soon found he was held to a higher standard of conduct than his white counterparts, such as being reprimanded for coming in late when co-workers were not. Mr. Sack helped the man document the pattern of arbitrary discipline and differential treatment, filed an EEOC claim for racial discrimination under Title VII, and reached a settlement with the company.
