Workplace Discrimination and Retaliation
Protecting Victims of Workplace Discrimination and Retaliation
Proven Employment Lawyer Serving New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
Under New York and federal law, workers are protected from discrimination on the job based on certain “suspect classifications,” such as race, gender, age, religion, disability, and sexual orientation. There are also laws prohibiting employers from engaging in retaliatory acts when workers seek to enforce their legal rights. If you or someone you love has been treated differently at work because of membership in a protected class or has been subjected to punishment or retribution for engaging in protected activities, the Law Office of Justin A. Zeller can help.
At the Law Office of Justin A. Zeller, we offer nearly 20 years of experience to men and women in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut who have been victims of workplace discrimination. We understand the important role work plays in everyone’s life, and the stress that can result when you’re treated unfairly on the job. We take a thorough approach to employment law disputes, taking the time to learn the details of your situation, as well as what you need to be made whole. We’ll promptly notify you of all changes or developments in your case, as well as your options and likelihood of success, so that you can make smart decisions about how you want to proceed. We are committed to being available and accessible when you need answers to your questions, and will strive to return all calls, emails and text messages in a timely manner.
Our Advocacy in Workplace Discrimination Claims
We will carefully review the facts and circumstances of your case to confirm that you are a member of a “suspect class” and that the discrimination was based on your membership in that class. We’ll take all steps necessary to seek appropriate remedies for any discriminatory treatment, filing the necessary documentation with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, as well as any pleadings or other documents in court.
Protecting Victims of Workplace Retaliation
We aggressively fight for individuals in New York who have been subjected to punishment or other adverse work consequences for asserting their legal rights, including people who have been retaliated against for:
- Reporting unethical, illegal, or wrongful acts by an employer or co-worker

- Participating in legal proceedings involving the employer, whether as a party or a witness
