Title VII Civil Rights Act Attorneys Jersey City

Handling Federal Discrimination Claims in New Jersey

Are you a victim of workplace discrimination or harassment? Several federal laws protect you from these situations, the most important of which is Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. Under this law, an employer cannot refuse to hire, fail to promote, fire, or otherwise treat an employee differently due to his or her race, color, religion, sex or national origin. If your employer violated this law, you have a right to file a civil rights claim.

Representing Employees Since 1956

For more than 50 years, the attorneys of Krumholz Dillon, P.A., have been fighting on the behalf of victims of workplace discrimination, retaliation or harassment in Hudson County and throughout New Jersey. We have a thorough understanding of the federal laws protecting our clients, and work hard to skillfully apply them to their cases.

As our client, you will benefit from comprehensive services in employment law and a strong commitment to protect your equal employment rights. We will explain your rights and seek redress under the law for any violations of your employment rights. Depending on the specific employment law violation, we may negotiate for you to receive:

  • Compensation for emotional suffering and financial loss
  • Reinstatement to your job
  • Hiring or a promotion if you were denied a job opportunity due to illegal discrimination
  • A reasonable accommodation for your disability, religious beliefs or other legally protected circumstances
  • Other reasonable terms to protect your continued employment or ability to seek another job

Filing a Federal Claim

If your employer violated your rights under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, you must first file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). There is a statute of limitations, so do not sit on your rights. Contact a lawyer at our firm right away, so we can help seek justice on your behalf. After you file an EEOC claim, one of two things will happen: either the EEOC will investigate your claim or you may request a right-to-sue letter so you can bring a civil lawsuit against your employer. We will advise you on the best course of action given your situation.
