Can You Sue Your Employer For Unfair Treatment?

Employment Discrimination

Whether or not an employee can sue his/her employer for “unfair treatment” depends on the circumstances. In order for “unfair treatment” to be illegal, it must be connected to discrimination. In short, if you are being targeted unfairly because of your race, age, gender, sexual orientation or other protected category, that unfairness would violate the Federal, New York State and New York City Human Rights Laws.

The law does not guarantee you will have a nice place to work. It does not contain a promise that your boss will treat you fairly and with respect. You are, however, protected from being discriminated against or retaliated against because you stood up to discrimination. Remember, discrimination is typically committed secretly and behind closed doors. We do not expect to see a smoking gun or direct evidence. Sometimes there is a fine line between unfairness and discrimination and the attorneys at Schwartz Perry & Heller have the experience and know-how to fully examine the circumstances and uncover what may really be happening.
