Queens New York Transgender Discrimination Attorneys
Transgender men and women face some of the most daunting challenges in the workplace—largely because many of the rules protecting transgender individuals are still being formed. Many lawyers do not handle cases involving transgender issues, but at Ricotta & Marks, P.C., we do.
Though transgender discrimination is an evolving area of the law, it does not mean that you as a transgender individual do not have rights. You do. Our lawyers are dedicated to enforcing them.
Transgender individuals often face the same forms of harassment and discrimination that cisgendered people face, including sexual harassment, sexual orientation discrimination, gender stereotyping and gender discrimination. Other issues that transgender workers might encounter include:
- Unfair workloads
- Bad performance reviews that are unwarranted
- Dress code issues
- Restroom issues
- Physical requirements, particularly for police officers and fire fighters
Transgender Harassment in the Workplace
Harassment of transgender workers can be quite severe, but you do not need to battle it alone. You have the right to work in an environment that is free of harassment. Our attorneys will take action to ensure that your right to a harassment-free workplace is respected. We will take forceful action to protect your rights.
