Syracuse’s Passionate Advocate For Equality
Fairness, equality and open-mindedness inform laws prohibiting discrimination. These federal and state statutes strive to protect marginalized peoples from practices informed by bigotry. The victims of discrimination most often include minority populations like women, the elderly, people of color and those with developmental disabilities. The primary offenders are often entities that consider themselves above the law, like government agencies and large corporations. Fortunately, Syracuse residents suffering due to discrimination can come see me, attorney Graeme Spicer, to take legal action. At Spicer Law, I am ready to take on the big guys and secure your due justice and compensation.
Civil rights offenses occur most often in the workplace or during interactions with law enforcement.
There Is No Excuse For Workplace Discrimination
If you have been denied employment opportunities or faced unfair treatment in the workplace, you may be able to take legal action against your employer. I can help you file a claim with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and pursue further litigation.
Federal and state laws prevent employer discrimination based on:
- Race or color
- Religious beliefs or creed
- Mental or physical ability
- Gender identity
- Sexual orientation
- Immigration status
- Military status
- Marital status
- Familial status, including pregnancy
- Prior convictions or arrests
If you or a loved one has been negatively impacted by the discriminatory actions of an employer, you deserve compensation for your hardships.
Did A Police Officer Violate Your Rights?
Civil rights violations can also come from the police or government officials. Many violations occur during routine traffic stops, when an officer unlawfully searches a person or their vehicle, or arrests them based on discriminatory beliefs. All too often do these situations escalate to lethal levels, where an officer’s discrimination leads to a civilian’s unjust death.
