When to File a Discrimination Claim in New York
Federal and state laws protect people from discrimination by their employer. This means that every employee has the right to be treated fairly regardless of their protected characteristics, including disability, gender, age, race, and religion.
To file a discrimination claim against an employer, an individual must have experienced some type of adverse employment action initiated because of their protected characteristic.
Adverse actions can include:
- Failure to promote
- Reassignment to lesser duties
- Reduction in compensation benefits
If you have experienced any of these injustices and would like to file a complaint, you must do so within 180 days of the time the discrimination took place. It can also be beneficial to do this through a representative, such as an experienced lawyer. An attorney can help ensure that all your information is correct and filed on time.
Proving Workplace Discrimination
The fact is, not many employers admit that they discriminate against applicants or employees. But employers often leave clues on on how employment discrimination is affecting their workplace, if it is happening in the first place. Some of these clues that indicate discrimination would be a bias verbal statement such as “Young people always get it done.” or “Leave this one to the boys.” Other forms of employment discrimination can be statistics showing executive teams being all the same age, race, and gender, or a recent firing of a group of older employees. If you have any concrete proof of circumstances like these, you may have a valid case.
