We Handle the Full Range of Employment Discrimination Claims
As an employee in Connecticut or New York, you should be assessed on your own qualifications and performance”not on stereotypes. Unfortunately, discrimination in the workplace remains a serious issue. In far too many cases, employees are treated less favorably than similarly situated coworkers based solely on legally protected characteristics. At Carey & Associates, P.C., we handle the full spectrum of workplace discrimination claims in Stamford. No matter your circumstances, our firm is prepared to help you find the best path forward. Some notable examples of employment discrimination claims that we have experience handling include:
- Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment is a form of sex-based discrimination. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act, and the New York State Human Rights Law all prohibit sexual harassment in the workplace. Sexual harassment can take two forms: Quid pro quo harassment and hostile work environment harassment. Notably, an employer can be held responsible for sexual harassment committed by a business owner, supervisor, co-worker, and even a customer. Employers have a proactive responsibility to protect workers against sex-based harassment. Contact our Stamford, CT sexual harassment lawyers today for immediate help with your case.
- Wrongful Termination: Most U.S. states”including Connecticut and New York”operate under an at-will employment doctrine. In effect, this means that the employer-employee relationship is voluntary. Unless there is a contract stating otherwise, either party can terminate the relationship at any time”even without œgood cause. That being said, employers cannot fire or lay off workers for illegal reasons, such as on discriminatory grounds or in retaliation. If you were the victim of an illegal firing/discharge, contact our Stamford wrongful termination attorneys for help.
- Racial Discrimination: Race-based discrimination remains an issue of concern in U.S. workplaces. Sadly, in far too many cases, workers are treated less favorably than similarly situated co-workers/job applicants based on their race, color, or national origin. State and federal employment laws protect workers against racial discrimination. If you were treated poorly in the workplace because of your racial background, contact an experienced Stamford, CT employment lawyer for help.
- Age Discrimination: Age should not be a barrier in the workplace. Unfortunately, in many industries, workers over the age of 40 fail to receive fair treatment. We handle age discrimination cases in Connecticut and New York. If you or someone you know was the victim of job-related age discrimination, our Stamford employment law team is available to help.
