Fired from job based on race, disability, sexual orientation in NYC

Asked about 1 year ago - New York, NY

I was fired from my job because of my race, disability, gender, sexual orientation. I was able to collect unemployment compensation here in NY due to the unjust termination from the job. Now I want to file a lawsuit against my former employer for all the unjust pain and suffering I had to endure before they finally terminated my employment unjustly. I need legal help

    Answered . To discuss whether you have a case, and how strong it is, you can contact the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the NYS Division of Human Rights, and if your job was in NYC, the NYC Commission on Human Rights. You can also contact an employment attorney for a consultation. There are time limits for filing discrimination lawsuits, so the sooner the better.
