EMPLOYMENT LAW

Discrimination Law

Employment Discrimination Still Exists – Unfortunately

Discrimination can affect someone’s employment. When an individual is terminated, it may not be readily apparent that the reason for termination was the result of discrimination, whether it be race, gender, religious, sex, disability, age or whistle-blower retaliation. However, when the pieces of the puzzle are put together, it becomes more apparent that the real reason for termination was discriminatory and therefore a violation of the law.

Goldman Davis Krumholz & Dillon, P.C. is well versed in all aspects of Employment Discrimination Law. Additionally, partner Evan L. Goldman, is a Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney, a designation given to less than 2% of all attorneys in the State of New Jersey.

We recognize the emotional distress a victim who has been wrongfully discharged undergoes. We also understand the economic harm that can not only affect the person who has been discharged, but also those who rely upon that person for economic support.

Discrimination claims must be prosecuted carefully and thoughtfully. Many times, a discrimination claim has to be tried before a Judge and Jury; therefore, it is important that the attorney you choose be well versed in all aspects of discrimination law, as well as having the requisite trial experience.  Evan L. Goldman has tried to conclusion well over 125 trials before a Judge and Jury. Based in Bergen County, and Hackensack, all of our employment attorneys have the requisite knowledge and experience to handle your employment case, whether it is on behalf of an employer or employee.

Although employers are prohibited by federal and state law from discriminating against an individual because of a disability, employers do not always comply with the laws. If you are a victim of disability discrimination, the attorneys at Goldman Davis Krumholz & Dillon, P.C., can help you file a claim.

You Have Rights…

Together We Can Protect Them

American Disabilities Act

In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was created to protect the rights of employees with disabilities. Employers are required under the ADA to make accommodations for individuals with a wide range of disabilities such as:

Physical handicaps
Mental disabilities
Emotional disabilities
Serious illnesses

Accommodations include providing handicap accessibility in buildings and allowing time off for medical appointments. In addition, the   ADA also prohibits public and private employers from discriminating against qualified individuals because of a disability. Unfortunately, some employers do not care about what the law says.

Forms of Discrimination

We also have comprehensive knowledge of the various state and federal laws applicable to employee rights and discrimination, including:

Title VII
Sexual Harassment
Age, Gender, Racial, Sexual Orientation, Religious, National Origin/Ethnic, Pregnancy Discrimination

  • FLA (Family Leave Act)
    FLSA (Fair Labor Standards Act)
