Employee-Related Workplace Litigation in New York
Employee-related workplace litigation in New York and around the country appears to be on the rise. Many attribute the increase in claims due in part to the tough economic times facing many companies. Concerns over job security, retaliation against an employee for raising employee-related workplace discrimination and most recently, genetic discrimination related to an employee’s medical history are mounting. If workplace discrimination is suspected, it is important to keep copious notes and consult an attorney experienced in employee-related workplace litigation.

The Equal Employment Occupation Commission
There has been a steady rise in the filing of discrimination claims during the last ten years. The Equal Employment Occupation Commission (EEOC) is a federal agency that enforces federal employment discrimination laws. According to the EEOC, there were approximately 95,000 claims of discrimination reported in 2008. The most common discrimination claims were related to age, disability, national origin, race, sexual discrimination, retaliation and unequal pay for equal work. The claim process, however, can be cumbersome, so it is important to have qualified legal representation to guide the process.
