The New York Employment Lawyers at Rapaport Law Firm are committed to representing employees whose rights have been violated by their employer, co-employee or supervisor. Because of the cutting-edge employment discrimination issues that we frequently take on, our firm can regularly be heard in the local and national media. We have tenaciously fought to make sure that New Yorkers receive the full benefits of the New York City Human Rights Law, which is one of the most liberal anti-discrimination laws in the country. Our published decisions in the areas of pregnancy/gender discrimination, race discrimination, disability discrimination, wrongful termination, unpaid wages, overtime, age discrimination, hostile work environment and sexual harassment reflect our commitment to enforcing the rights of employees in New York. Our law firm was founded by Marc Rapaport, a New York employment lawyer with 25 years of experience. We represent employees in all New York state and federal courts, as well as in proceedings before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, New York State Human Rights Commission, and New York City Human Rights Commission.
