What is Employment Law?

In New York, employment law is in place to protect workers from discrimination and harassment as well as regulate wages, hours worked, leave rights, safety and health, and unemployment insurance.

If you suspect that your employer is not following these guidelines or that your rights have been violated in some way at work, the attorneys at Mizrahi Kroub can help. Our goal is to hold your employer accountable for violating any employment laws and get you compensation for any damages incurred by those violations.

What Would be Considered a Violation of Employment Law?

In New York, various things can be considered employment law violations. Some examples of violations include:

  • Discrimination: Whether it’s discrimination based on race, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or other protected classes, your current or potential employer can not make decisions regarding your ability to be employed based on any of those as mentioned above.  
  • Harassment: Workplace harassment includes any unwanted or unwelcome conduct relating to a protected class with the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with the workplace environment.
  • Retaliation: If an employer retaliates against you for speaking up against discrimination, harassment, wage theft, or illegal or dangerous activity, you should reach out to an attorney immediately.
  • Safety Violations: If your safety is at all violated at work, you may have been subjected to an employment law violation. As an employee, you are entitled to a safe and hazard-free work environment.
  • Misclassification of Employees: This occurs when your employer treats you as an independent contractor instead of an employee. As an employee, you have certain rights, including minimum wage and overtime laws, workers’ compensation coverage, and unemployment insurance benefits. You might be entitled to make a claim if your employer does not uphold these rights.
  • Failure to Accommodate Disabilities: Every workplace needs to be able to provide reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. If your employer does not provide reasonable accommodations, you are within your rights to make a claim.

If your employer has exhibited any of these violations, it’s important that you reach out to an employment law attorney.
