Victims of Workplace Discrimination Can Find Help Here

Posted by Scott M. Peterson | Apr 24, 2014 | 0 Comments

Many employees who take medical or family leave under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) are often treated poorly when they return to work. Although this shouldn't happen, many hard-working employees have suffered workplace discrimination and retaliation as a result. If you went out on leave only to come back to being unfairly written up or terminated, you may be a victim of workplace discrimination and retaliation. If your employer has unfairly fired you or retaliated against you following a pregnancy or medical leave, you have rights. You should never be treated differently because of your family or medical situation or as a result of your race, age, gender, or disability. If you are, you need to speak with an employment attorney. At D'Orazio Peterson, we have handled employment law cases at all levels including the New York State Division of Human Rights, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), as well as in New York state and federal courts. Hire a lawyer who has successfully litigated employment discrimination cases and knows what it takes to get the results you are looking for. Call us for a free consultation today at 888-706-9765 or contact us online at www.doraziopeterson.com.
