New York Employment Discrimination Law Attorneys

A Fresh Approach to Employment Law

The New York City employment law firm of Maduegbuna Cooper LLP represents employees and employers in discrimination cases. We appear in federal and state courts throughout New York and before government agencies. This includes the New York State Human Rights Commission and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, as well as various arbitration forums such as the National Association of Securities Dealers.

Our lawyers have successfully resolved a number of high-profile employment discrimination cases and we are available to help you.

What is Employment Discrimination?

You should be judged by the quality of your work, not by traits that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against you on the basis of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Genetic information
  • National origin
  • Pregnancy
  • Race or color
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Sexual Harassment

We empower you to take action against employers who engaged in such discriminatory practices involving hiring, promotion, pay, assignments, discharge or harassment based on your membership in a prescribed class.

Americans with Disabilities Act litigation

The Americans with Disabilities Act requires employers to reasonably accommodate your disability. The statute also prohibits employers from discriminating against you or harassing you because of your disability. Our lawyers demand that employers comply with these important laws.

Helping Businesses Form Sound Employment Policies

Your company can create a discrimination-free workplace and avoid litigation by developing sound employment policies and maintaining thorough records. We advise you on such crucial issues as:

  • Instituting clear corporate policies
  • Revising personnel manuals
  • Drafting waiver and release forms
  • Determining the adequacy of your severance packages
  • Developing procedures for reprimanding and terminating employees
  • Implementing a well-organized record-keeping system

If a discharged employee filed a claim against your company for discrimination or sexual harassment, we help you investigate the facts of the case and build a strong defense against untruthful allegations.
