Legal Advocacy for Employee Rights

You should be aware of the state and federal laws that protect you as a New York resident and employee. With nearly a decade of experience, the award-winning lawyer at The Law Office of Kimberly A. Glennon has helped countless Rochester employees defend their rights. In fact, our firm is exclusively focused on this area of law, unlike other firms in the area. If you have reason to believe that your workplace rights have been violated, don't hesitate to secure the legal assistance and advocacy that you need from a dedicated Rochester employment lawyer. Some of the areas of employment that the firm is prepared to help you with include:

Disability
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) protects those who suffer from disabilities. Employers do not have the right to refuse employment to qualified individuals because of a handicap. In addition, if you are physically able to perform the required job, your employer does not have the right to terminate your employment because of the disability.

Discrimination
Workplace discrimination can take many forms, including refusal to promote an individual or to increase his or her compensation because of an external or preferential factor on the part of the employee. You should be evaluated based on your ability and your work ethic - not on an illegal basis of discrimination such as ethnicity, gender, or age.

Family & Medical Leave Act
You should not have to worry that pregnancy or a medical emergency will jeopardize your employment. The Family & Medical Leave Act of 1993 (FMLA) requires employers to grant leave to an eligible employee in the event of certain types of family and medical situations.

Fair Labor Standards Act
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is a federal law that determines such employment-related issues as overtime hours, child labor protection, and minimum wage. Among other things, the FLSA requires that employees be paid minimum wage in addition to overtime pay for hours worked in excess of 40 hours per work week.

Employer Retaliation
Under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, employers may not discriminate against their employees or prospective employees. In addition, they are prohibited from retaliating against employees who file discrimination claims with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

Sexual Harassment
If you were the victim of sexual harassment by a supervisor, manager, co-worker, or even a customer, it is crucial that you take action to defend your rights as well as your safety. This type of workplace harassment is considered to be a form of gender discrimination and is prohibited by both federal and New York state laws.

Wrongful Termination
In certain circumstances, being dismissed from your job could be an illegal and actionable offense. For example, if your employer terminated you because you reported a civil rights violation or as a means of denying your earned benefits, you could be eligible to make a wrongful termination claim.
