Employment Discrimination Attorneys for
Federal Employees in New York State
Employees of the federal government are not immune to discrimination, but they do have recourse if they are covered under the Civil Rights Act and other federal laws. Federal employees also have extended rights if they are terminated or disciplined as backlash for filing a discrimination claim.
The lawyers of Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C., can skillfully invoke all of your rights as a federal government worker and as a member of a protected class under equal employment opportunity (EEO) laws. We will aggressively pursue justice for your employer's unjust treatment, and we will fiercely protect your federal employee benefits and career.
We can represent federal employees in New York City and Long Island, Albany and upstate New York, Buffalo and statewide. Contact us today for a consultation.
Accomplished Employment Law Attorneys Who Know Your Rights
We have helped hundreds of federal workers assert claims for discriminatory practices in hiring, compensation, promotion, job assignments and other facets of employment. We have brought actions under:
- Title VII of the Civil Rights Act for discrimination on the basis of race, national origin/ethnicity, gender or religion, or for sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination.
- The Age Discrimination in Employment Act for discrimination against 40-and-over workers.
- The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Rehabilitation Act for disability discrimination or failure to accommodate.
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) for sanctioning workers who take job-protected family or personal health leave.
- The Pregnancy Discrimination Act for for termination or discrimination on the basis of pregnancy.
Federal employees are entitled to formally challenge any disciplinary action. This includes unwarranted removal, demotion or suspension as retaliation against a worker who files a discrimination claim. If you were targeted for reprisal in connection with an EEO claim, you have the right respond to the proposed action before it is executed or contest removal or discipline after the fact in a Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) claim.
