Employees in Westchester County and other parts of New York state are protected from discrimination in employment based on a number of personal characteristics.
Some of our most vulnerable populations are experiencing increasingly stressful employment situations. In fact, many workers in America (up to 1 in 5) feel they work in a hostile or abusive work environment.
While many businesses have openly acknowledged the problems of discrimination and inequity facing black workers in America as a result of the Black Lives Matter movement, racial discrimination still regularly occurs in the workplace.
Whether your position is being eliminated in corporate downsizing, or you are getting laid off or fired for another reason, at some point in your life you may find yourself reviewing a severance agreement.
The last thing you need when you’re starting a family – or growing one – is financial uncertainty or the stress and anxiety that comes from becoming the target of discriminatory treatment at work because of your pregnancy.
New York Labor Law §194, requires that employees of a particular establishment be paid a wage that is equivalent to the wages paid to employees of the opposite sex, or of a different race or sexual orientation, or who are members of any other class of employees.
I consider myself fortunate to have been introduced to Claudia, who performed flawlessly on my behalf in extremely difficult and trying conditions. As a senior level executive, my expectations for professionalism and service delivery are high and I can honestly say that Claudia went far above and beyond my expectations to represent my best interests. She is tenacious and fights for her clients rather than pursuing the path of least resistance. Her case preparation was extremely thorough and diligent. When combined with her experience and high level of competence in employment law, she is a formidable adversary to any employer, large or small, who exercises digressions in employment tactics. It is without reservation that I recommend Claudia’s services to handle any employment matter, large or small, that requires legal finesse.
She puts the needs of her clients first.
Claudia knows the law and she explained to me every step of the way what she was doing and why… I slept very well at night knowing that she was on my side.
