CIVIL RIGHTS LAW
Were you denied a promotion or equal pay at work, or an apartment rental because of your race, age, gender or sexual orientation? Do you constantly receive unwanted sexual propositions at work?
New York City, State and Federal Laws make these, and many other types of discrimination and harassment, illegal. Agencies such as the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission), Division of Human Rights (DHR), Attorney General, and NYC Commission on Human Rights have offices all over New York where you may file complaints, without hiring a lawyer.
However, navigating the agencies, forms and time limits to file your complaint, and evidence necessary to prove your case may be difficult without a lawyer. The Law Office of Lori Nevias can help. We will help you gather the evidence you need, ensure your case gets the attention it deserves and move it into the court system for resolution, which often becomes necessary, or we may immediately file a lawsuit on your behalf if that is the best strategy for you.
Some of the types of cases we handle include discrimination, harassment and other violations of the law based upon:
- Sexual orientation
- Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) violations
- Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) violations
- Equal Pay Act (EPA) violationsPregnancy Discrimination Act casesGenetic Information Non-Discrimination Act (GINA) violationsSexual harassment in the workplace
