Many employers ignore their legal commitments to their employees. Employer misbehavior can include discriminating against or harassing employees who are members of protected classes, as well as failing to pay employees the minimum wage and overtime required by law. Employers may retaliate against employees who have complained about their abuse in some instances.

What Should I Look For When Choosing A Lawyer?
Take into account the following:
Are you comfortable sharing personal information with the lawyer? Is the lawyer genuinely interested in resolving your issue?
Credentials – Has the lawyer been practicing for a long time? Is the attorney experienced in cases comparable to yours?
Cost – Is the lawyer’s fee based on an hourly rate or a flat charge? Is it possible for the lawyer to provide you with an estimate of the cost of your case?
Is the lawyer’s office in a convenient location for you?
Other Practice Areas and EEOC Representation
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which is responsible for enforcing federal anti-discrimination laws, reviews complaints filed by employees alleging violations of Title VII and comparable legislation. Within 180 days of the conduct on which your complaint is based, you must submit a charge of discrimination with this agency. The EEOC will initially attempt to resolve the case through conciliation, an informal process. It also offers a mediation program that, if both parties agree, can be used as an alternative to litigation. If conciliation and mediation fail, the EEOC may file a claim against the employer or notify the employee of its decision not to pursue the issue further, as well as the employee’s right to sue. The EEOC frequently declines to pursue a good case because crucial evidence has yet to be revealed. You should be aware that even if the agency does not sue your employer, you may still have a good case.
The attorneys at Yale Pollack La Office can also help you with representation before the New York Division of Human Rights, which is comparable to the EEOC but operates on a state level. We can also represent you in an arbitration hearing or while negotiating a severance arrangement with your employer.
