As one of the largest minority-owned firms in New York State, Faruqi & Faruqi is deeply invested in protecting employees from discrimination and harassment. Employees have the right to a workplace free of derogatory, abusive, and discriminatory treatment.
Employers engage in unlawful discriminatory practices when they treat workers differently on the basis of certain protected categories, such as race, sex, age, religion, disability, pregnancy, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity. Such laws also prohibit compensating employees differently on the basis of these protected categories. Harassment includes unwanted advances or other conduct that can be subjectively interpreted as offensive, intimidating or abusive – all of which can create a hostile work environment. Such discrimination and harassment must never be tolerated.
We are devoted to empowering employees to speak out against such unlawful practices. As we grow closer to a more tolerant world, Faruqi & Faruqi will continue to champion equal rights in the work place. If you believe that you have been subjected to discriminatory practices or a hostile work environment, it is your right to speak out and we are here to help. Please contact our attorneys for a free and confidential consultation and we will explain your options and help protect your rights: (877) 247-4292.
