Speaking Out Against Employment Discrimination

Discrimination in the workplace happens far more frequently than many people would think. It can feel hopeless to fight it. However, there are laws designed to help individuals facing unjust discrimination. Lombardi Walsh Davenport & Amodeo, P.C., helps clients hold employers accountable for their actions.

What Can You Do About Discrimination?

It is important to understand what classes are protected under state and federal law. Protected classes include:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Race and/or color
  • Pregnancy
  • National origin
  • Religion
  • Citizenship status
  • Disability

If you are a part of a protected class, your employer cannot discriminate against you based on this characteristic. If you believe that you are suffering discrimination based on a protected class, you should first and foremost speak with your firm’s human resources department. Make sure to keep a detailed record of all correspondence. If human resources fails to resolve the situation, contact an attorney.

Lombardi Walsh Davenport & Amodeo, P.C., is uniquely positioned to help people facing discrimination. Attorney Richard Walsh has been selected for inclusion to New York Super Lawyers annually for labor and employment law for more than a decade, and the firm has achieved multimillion-dollar results for clients.
