Discrimination can take many forms and can be caused by various prejudices that employers, supervisors or co-workers have against certain groups of people. Discrimination in the workplace is absolutely prohibited by law, and it is my job to help you prove that discrimination and try to get some justice for you.
At my firm — the Law Office of Matthew S. Porges, Esq. — I take on this challenge with confidence as a Brooklyn, lawyer with extensive experience handling workplace discrimination matters. I have achieved favorable results in a wide range of employment law issues, including discrimination based on race or nationality, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability or a criminal record.
What Constitutes Discrimination?
Not all actions that make an individual feel uncomfortable in the workplace constitute discrimination or harassment. When we will meet, we will discuss the specifics of your case. However, some examples of discriminatory behavior include:
- Using language that directly or indirectly shows a bias against members of a group.
- Treating members of a specific group (race or nationality, gender, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or criminal record) are less favorably than those who are not members of that group
- Making transfer, promotion or dismissal decisions based on discriminatory criteria
My primary goals in all cases are to fight for the rights of my clients to the greatest extent possible. I will relentlessly work to try to obtain the justice you deserve.
