Helping Employees Stand Up Against Mistreatment
Employees are protected from workplace discrimination under state and federal laws. But what can you do if your employer is the one violating the law or your boss will not take your side?
You can turn to The Law Office of Thomas S. Mirigliano for compassionate support and aggressive representation. We advocate for employees in New York City and New Jersey who have suffered employment-related discrimination, harassment or retaliation. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your rights and remedies.
Employment Litigation For Discrimination And Harassment
Under the federal Civil Rights Act, the New York City Human Rights Law, the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, the Americans with Disabilities Act and other statutes, employees cannot be subjected to discrimination on the basis of race or color, ethnicity or national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, family status, age (over 40), disability or pregnancy.
This includes discriminatory treatment in hiring, pay, job assignments, promotion, discipline, layoffs and other facets of your job. You are also protected from adverse action such as demotion or termination for reporting discrimination, whistleblowing on illegal activity, filing a workers’ compensation claim or taking medical leave or maternity leave.
Aggressive Pursuit Of Justice
Attorney Thomas Mirigliano enjoys taking employers to task for failing to do the right thing. He is an accomplished trial lawyer with experience in state and federal courts in employment litigation, including:
- Employment discrimination
- Sexual harassment or hostile work environment
- Failure to make reasonable accommodations for a disability
- Violations of the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Wrongful termination or constructive discharge
- Whistleblower retaliation
The employer is obligated to investigate and take appropriate action against the wrongdoer if you report discrimination or harassment by a co-worker, supervisor, owner or customer. If the employer failed to follow through – or retaliated against you – you may have grounds to sue. If you prevail, you can be compensated for lost income, damage to your reputation or career, and the infliction of emotional distress.
We Are With You Every Step Of The Way
Reporting abuse or suing your employer can be a scary undertaking. Thomas Mirigliano will personally meet with you and handle your case from start to finish. He will explain the legal process and what to expect at each stage. Many employment discrimination and harassment cases are resolved out of court, but we are definitely prepared to go all the way to trial to tell your story and hold the employer and wrongdoer(s) accountable.
If you are a member of a protected class and you believe that you were mistreated on that basis, arrange a free consultation, either by phone or at our Manhattan law office. We practice in all five boroughs of NYC and the surrounding areas of New Jersey. Call 646-978-9945 or contact us online.
