Employment Discrimination

The NYC Commission on Human Rights protects New Yorkers from discrimination in employment for a wide range of protected groups. Organizations must have four or more employees to be covered by the law, but the Commission works with businesses of all sizes to promote understanding and combat discrimination.

As an employee, you have a right to reasonable accommodation for your religion and are protected from sexual harassment. With the Fair Chance Act, employers may not ask about your criminal history until they have made a conditional offer of employment.

If you file a complaint with the Commission, your employer may not retaliate against you. Our attorneys and Community Relations team are ready to help you follow your obligations and know your rights. Please contact us to find out more.
