A Trusted Small Business Working To Protect Your Professional Practice And Your Business

Taking Action On Discrimination Complaints

One of the most common types of issues related to employment law is discrimination. It is against federal and state law for an employee to be discriminated against and as such, these are very severe allegations. It is important to take all of these matters seriously and address them as efficiently as possible to ensure your business is protected.

At the Buffalo, New York, office of The Tarantino Law Firm, LLP, our lawyers aggressively stand up for our clients’ rights in discrimination and other employment law cases. We believe our expertise in representing both employer and employees provide us with unique insight which is invaluable for our clients.

Protected Classifications

Discrimination cases are based on the allegation that an individual was discriminated against due to his or her status in one of the protected classifications as defined by federal law. These can include:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Race
  • Disability
  • National origin
  • Sexual orientation
  • Pregnancy

Discrimination can also be alleged retaliation for other issues, and can lead to accusations of a hostile work environment and even sexual harassment.

Counseling Employers To Avoid Litigation

Through structuring of rules and regulations stated in an employee handbook, it may be possible to minimize discrimination and other employment law issues. Our attorneys can assist in the creation of the handbooks with an eye on the future of the business.

When a situation arises and you find yourself facing a potential discrimination case, it may be possible for us to help you before it becomes a lawsuit. We can assess the situation, gather all the facts and arrange for a discussion to be had with the employee. Through negotiation, we may be able to minimize the impact to your business while ensuring the employee’s concerns are effectively addressed.
