Work-related injuries are not always physical. For instance, workers who are discriminated against (because of their sex, religion or ethnic background) may experience emotional or financial damages if they are prevented from moving up in a company or making the amount of money their colleagues make.
No matter what the circumstances of your specific case, if you feel that you have been wronged in any way at your place of work, contact Gacovino, Lake & Associates for help.
Types of Employment Law Cases
We have extensive experience in handling cases involving employment law, including:
- Labor Law 240/241—The labor law sections 240 and 241 of the New York statutes concern individuals who are injured or killed in incidents involving scaffolding or a ladder.
- Discrimination in the Workplace—Although highly illegal, discrimination in the workplace occurs way more often than we would like to admit. Discrimination can be subtle or extremely obvious, and can be due to a person’s sex, race, religious beliefs, age and more.
- Wrongful Termination—In many states, employees are hired on an at-will basis, meaning that they do not need to enter into a contract when accepting a job. This no-contract agreement allows either the employer or the employee to terminate the working relationship at any time for any nondiscriminatory reason. However, sometimes employers abuse this law, using it as an excuse to fire an employee whom they have no other justifiable reason to terminate.
