New York Employment Attorneys Fighting for the Rights of LGBTQ+ Community Members
Throughout the years, members of the LGBTQ+ community have fought hard to obtain rights and recognitions they had been denied by those who saw their lives as less than. And while great strides have been made, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (questioning) individuals and couples still face challenges in today's society. Any negative differential treatment or violence against members of the LGBTQ+ community is abhorrent and should not be tolerated.
At Nisar Law Group, P.C., we stand with the LGBTQ+ community and work tirelessly to address and fight acts of discrimination directed at these individuals. We celebrate and respect all people, no matter their sexual orientation or preferences, and we will continue to take legal action against anyone who engages in unjust conduct that negatively affects them.
At Nisar Law Group, P.C., our goal is to help to create lasting change and challenge workplace discrimination based on a person's gender or sexual orientation. To discuss your case, call us at (646) 760-6493 today.
Sexual Orientation and Gender Discrimination in the Workplace
Sadly, erroneous and harmful thoughts about members of the LGBTQ+ community seep into the workplace, creating uncomfortable and hostile environments. People may face various types of discrimination based on their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity. Not only does New York law prohibit this type of conduct, but in Bostock v. Clayton County, Georgia decided in June of 2020, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that sexual orientation and sex discrimination in the workplace is barred under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Employers can and should be held accountable for allowing such discrimination to continue.
If you've been subject to unjust treatment at work, our attorneys are here to help you understand your legal options. We have extensive experience in employment law and an in-depth understanding of your rights and legal protections. We will fight toward a favorable outcome on your behalf.
Celebrating Pride Month
In June of 1970, the first Pride celebration was held to recognize the first anniversary of the Stonewall Uprisings. Just a year earlier, police raided a gay club known as the Stonewall Inn, which sparked protests against such conduct. Members of the community sought safe places for gay men and women to gather without fear of persecution or arrest.
Today, Pride Month is celebrated throughout June. People from all walks of life come together to remember not only the Stonewall Uprisings but also to recognize progress and change members of the LGBTQ+ community have made. Pride is celebrated worldwide, with millions of people joining in on festivities.
At Nisar Law Group, P.C., we stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community and respect and support celebrations such as Pride Month, as well as groups and organizations that fight for legal gains for these individuals and couples.
