At the Law Office of Lindy Korn PLLC, we always ask our clients what they want out of their case. Some seek an apology, training for an individual supervisor, termination of a management employee, compensation, a chance to tell their side of the story to their employer, or psychological counseling for the alleged harasser, to name a few. Whatever your desired result, we can help you get there.
Under New York State and federal laws, employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees on the basis of national origin. National origin discrimination can occur when an employer treats an employee differently because of the employee’s country of origin, ethnicity, or because the employee possesses an accent or characteristics typically associated with a certain part of the world.
Sex discrimination can refer both to disparate treatment and disparate impact. Disparate treatment involves an employer actively treating certain employees differently based on the employee’s sex. Disparate impact involves policies or other rules and behavior that has the effect of resulting in disparate, or unfair, outcomes for employees of a certain sex.
