Employment Discrimination 
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits employers from discriminating against their employees on the basis of one of the protected classes. Employment discrimination comes in many forms. Our skilled New York City employment discrimination attorneys have years of experience dedicated to the preventing employment discrimination. Our talented attorneys practice the following areas of employment discrimination: 
Race/National Origin/Color
Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals on the basis of their race, color or national origin. While it may seem odd, members of the same race, from the same place of origin or of the same color can discriminate against each other in the workplace. 

Age
Under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), an employer is prohibited from discriminating against an individual’s 40 years or older. However, many states, such as New York, protects individuals of all ages from discrimination. 

Disability
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals with a qualified disability. Employers are required to make reasonable accommodation for employees with qualified disabilities unless that would cause an undue hardship. 
 
Sex
Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against individuals based on that individual’s sex. Sexual harassment is the most common form of sex based discrimination, however, inequality in pay is also a common form of sex based discrimination. 

Sexual Orientation
Currently, it is up in the air as to whether Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against individual’s base on their sexual orientation. Two landmark cases are making their way to the Supreme Court, and Trump’s DOJ has made a very public stance against Title VII prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination. However, the Derek Smith Law Group, PLLC agrees with the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission (EEOC) that Title VII prohibits sex based discrimination and will fight vehemently for our clients in order to protect their rights.  

Gender 
Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on their gender. Specifically, Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against employees who fail to conform to traditional gender norms. 

Religious
Title VII prohibits employers from discriminating against an employee or potential employee based on their sincerely held religious beliefs. Under Title VII, an employer is required to make reasonable accommodations for its employees sincerely held religious beliefs, so long as those accommodations don’t cause that employer an undue hardship. 

Pregnancy
The Pregnancy Discrimination Act (PDA) is an amendment to Title VII which prohibits employers from discriminating against an employee or potential employee based on pregnancy, childbirth, or medical conditions associated with pregnancy. The PDA requires employers to provide a place for new mothers to pump their milk. 

Title IX Violations
Title IX of the Education Act of 1972 protects individuals who have been discriminated or harassed based on their sex in federally funded educational institutions. Title IX covers students, faculty and staff. The skilled Title IX attorneys at the Derek Smith Law Group, PLLC, have years of experience litigating Title IX violations. If you feel you have been discriminated or harassed based on your sex in a federally funded educational institution, please give our talented Title IX attorneys a call, toll-free, at 1877 4NYLAWS, for a free consultation. 

Wrongful Termination 
Title VII, Title IX, the ADEA, the PDA and various analogous state and city laws prevent individuals from being wrongfully terminated for participating in protected activities, such as reporting violations of any of these acts, internally or externally, or participating in any investigation, hearing, trial, etc. in association with a protected activity. If you feel you were wrongfully terminated, please give our skilled New York City sexual harassment attorneys or our talented Philadelphia sexual harassment attorneys a call, toll free, at 1877 4NYLAWS for your free consultation.

Wage & Hour Violation 
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) was designed to regulate wage standards, including, minimum wage and overtime. The FLSA sets the majority of wage and hour laws at the federal level.
