The world is constantly changing – laws, rules, the social climate. We use our social media platforms to share information about current events, provide tips for employees, and proclaim our stance on social movements. We hope to encourage and inspire individuals to take responsible action against injustices.
At Nisar Law Group, P.C., our New York employment lawyers believe in workplace fairness. Any injustice occurring within a company must be addressed and remedied. Allowing discrimination or retaliation to continue endangers the mental and physical health of victims of such atrocities as well as their colleagues. That is why our team stands up for those subject to mistreatment suffered because of their age, race, gender, or any other protected characteristics. We represent employees at all levels and have presented cases in New York state courts and Federal Courts of the Eastern and Southern District of New York.
Our employment attorneys in New York recognize that coming forward about unfair workplace practices can be difficult, but we encourage victims to speak up. By allowing your voice to be heard, you can effect positive change within your company and pursue remedy for the injustices you suffered while also making the environment better for others. We will stand by you, providing compassionate and well-informed guidance. We have an in-depth understanding of state and federal employment laws and are seasoned negotiators and litigators. We are prepared to fight for justice through arbitration or mediation, litigation, or alternative dispute resolution methods.

Speaking Out Against Unfair Employment Practices Should Not Come With Consequences
As an employee, you have a right to be free from discriminatory conduct creating an unfair and hostile work environment. State and federal laws protect employees from facing adverse employment actions because of their race, nationality, religion, sex, disability, age, or membership in other protected classes. New York law also protects workers based on familial status, gender identity, and political affiliation, among other characteristics. Thus, it is also your right to report practices violating these laws.
Yet, employees who speak up might face retaliation from their employers, further impacting the individual’s ability to work in a place free from adverse treatment. Forms of punishment for reporting or refusing to participate in discriminatory activities include, but are not limited to, being demoted, giving a poor performance evaluation, and making the workplace unbearable. Know that retaliation for reporting discrimination is illegal. An employer that engages in such should be held accountable for its actions.
