New York Employment Discrimination Attorney
Alena Shautsova helps clients to restore their rights and receive compensation for wrongs they suffered or suffering at work. The United States laws as well as laws of the States and sometimes Cities (like New York City) prohibit harassment, hostile environment and disparate treatment of employees on certain protective grounds such as race, sex, national origin, religion, disability, age, sexual orientation, marital status, past convictions, pregnancy. For each ground there is its own Statute. For each protective ground there is its own body of case law (decisions rendered by various courts). The laws are not set in stone and are constantly developing. For example, through recent cases, it has been recognized by the EEOC that a gay person who is feeling discriminated at work may bring his/her claims against an employer under the Federal Title VII Statute using “sex” discrimination ground. Previously, people who were discriminated based on sexual orientation could use only state laws to protect themselves. The same is true for transgender individuals.
