Many commonly accepted employment practices violate the law; on the other hand, not every unfair hiring or management practice constitutes illegal discrimination.

It is best to consult with an employment law attorney with experience in workplace discrimination before discussing your claim with anyone or taking any action. At Ury & Moskow, potential clients are provided with complimentary consultations. Contact our office to make arrangements.
Federal employment discrimination law involves a body of statutes, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; the Equal Pay Act of 1963, designed to prevent gender-based discrimination; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, which protects workers who are 40 years of age or older; and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which requires employers to make reasonable accommodations and prevents discrimination against employees with disabilities. Most states have laws that closely parallel these federal statutes.
Ury & Moskow’s success in recovering for our clients is the result of both the skill of our attorneys in the court room and our ability to demonstrate how the specific facts surrounding a unique case, interpreted in light of these statutes, constitute a violation of the employee’s right to freedom from discriminatory hiring or management policies.
