There are many laws and government agencies whose purpose is to protect against discrimination. The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Equal Pay Act (EPA), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act are more than just alphabet soup — they are intended to protect people from being treated differently by employers on the basis of their age, race, gender, religion, disability, national origin, sexual orientation and other factors.
And while these and other important laws do not always stop discrimination from occurring, they do give members of protected classes of people a way to pursue and obtain justice.
At Leeds Brown Law, P.C., we believe that discrimination at work, or anywhere else, has no place in a free and democratic society. The law agrees. More employers might agree too — if only they could feel the same kind of personal devastation, loss of self-esteem, desperation and depression that their victims do.
Our firm has won precedent setting decisions involving employment discrimination and is an established authority on this subject. And although our practice is based on Long Island, our lawyers serve clients throughout the New York City area and routinely represent people from other parts of the country as well.
In every matter, whether it involves filing an EEOC complaint on behalf of one individual or litigating a class action lawsuit — we take great pride not only in providing outstanding legal service and representation, but also in simply being there for clients at a time when they need it most.
