Each year, tens of thousands of employment discrimination and harassment lawsuits are filed across the country. Brown Kwon & Lam specializes in these types of cases.

In recent years, the #metoo movement has shed light on the systemic abuses that pervade employer-employee relations. In New York, there are federal, state, and local laws that protect employees from unlawful harassment and discrimination. To allege a claim for discrimination, you must be a member of a protected class and suffer an adverse employment action as a result of being a member of that protected class.

​New York employees may be able to bring claims for discrimination on the basis of their race, national origin, color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, citizenship status, genetic information, pregnancy, military status, criminal record, or age. Contact Brown Kwon & Lam now if you have been discriminated against.
