Attorneys Representing Victims of Sex Discrimination
At Leeds Brown, we also represent victims of sex discrimination that occurs when employment decisions are based on gender or when one sex receives treatment that differs from another. Sex discrimination can be intentional or can result from neutral policies that have a disparate impact on a particular gender.
If you work in New York, and are facing discrimination in the workplace because of your sex, sexual identity, pregnancy or status as a transgender individual, you may be entitled to receive monetary damages. As with sexual harassment, if your employer punishes you for trying to protect your rights to receive equal treatment and work in a safe environment, you may also have a retaliation claim.

Leeds Brown Lawyers Fight for the Rights of those Suffering Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
There are federal, state, and local laws that protect employees from sex discrimination and sexual harassment. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its amendments prohibit employment discrimination because of things like sex, race, religion, age, pregnancy and disability. But New York and New York City have laws as well that protect even more employees from discrimination in the workplace. New York State Human Rights Law (NYSHRL) or New York City Human Rights Law (NYCHRL) prohibit discrimination based on characteristics such as gender identity, sexual orientation, familial status and more. At times, the laws overlap and determining how to proceed in your case, is a decision that should be made with counsel.
You may also have a claim for unlawful retaliation if you have received adverse treatment after complaining about sexual harassment or refusing to acquiesce to sexual advances. You are not alone. Leeds Brown can help.
Having attorneys like the ones at Leeds Brown, who thoroughly understand the various rules and regulations that apply to your case is essential to formulating a successful plan of action. Call us to learn more about the laws that protect you from gender discrimination.
