New York City Gender Discrimination Lawyers
Gender discrimination can be overt in some cases and incredibly subtle in others. Time and again, employers let someone’s gender influence the important decisions they make about his or her career and life. There are numerous federal, state and local laws that protect employees from discrimination based on their sex or gender. At the law office of Taubman, Kimelman & Soroka, LLP, our New York City gender discrimination attorneys help men and women protect their right to fair employment free from discrimination.

New York law provides progressive discrimination protections above and beyond those provided by federal statutes such as Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Equal Pay Act of 1963. When it comes to gender, employers cannot discriminate based on gender or perceived stereotypic gender roles in matters such as:
- Hiring or firing
- Compensation and overtime
- Advancement and promotion
- Layoffs and demotions
- Access to facilities
Pregnancy Discrimination Attorneys Working Hard for You
Unfortunately, our New York employment law attorneys continue to see cases where employers discriminate in numerous ways such as not offering promotions based on pregnancy discrimination, refusing to hire women for certain jobs, denying jobs to individuals who are married or unmarried, and maintaining an all male environment or an all female environment. Sometimes, sexual harassment is involved in discrimination, though not always, and it can be men who are the victims as well as women.
If you suspect that you may be the victim of discrimination, a hostile work environment, or have suffered a wrongful termination, it is important to get professional counsel and assistance sooner rather than later. Even if you don’t have a strong case right away, particularly where the discrimination may be more subtle, we can help you build the evidence you need to show as pattern of abuse and discrimination.
