Retaliation Discrimination in New York State
Have you been the victim of Retaliation Discrimination at work in New York City or New York State?
State and Federal Laws forbid an employer from retaliating against an employee because that employee filed a report or claim against his or her boss or employer.
Say for example, an employee files a sexual harassment claim against his, her or their employer, the employer might terminate the employee on the spot as punishment.
The good news is that New York Laws and Federal Laws are in place to protect an employee’s position and career, should he, she or they need to file a claim that might upset the employer.
At Stillman Legal, we know that Employers have been known to punish an employee for filing a sexual harassment claim, which may have injured that employer’s reputation or pride.
Another thing Employers do, is they might also try to prevent the employee from filing a complaint by terminating the employee before they get to file.
Another popular retaliation tactic is for an employer to demote or diminish wages for an employee who returns from disability or family leave. All of these actions count as retaliation and are not allowed under the law.
