Employee Rights Services

Thomas D. Shanahan, P.C., is a New York law firm assisting clients who are victims of employment discrimination. We excel at fighting for fair results in situations involving illegal and unfair treatment at job sites across the state.

We take seriously our commitment to generating the best possible results. We provide thorough and practical evaluations of each client's case, followed by vigorous trial advocacy.

Since our firm was founded, we have zealously defended and protected the rights of those subjected to injustice in the workplace. Attorney Thomas Shanahan has more than 15 years of experience handling cases involving illegal discrimination on the basis of characteristics protected by law, including:

  • Gender
  • Ethnicity
  • Race
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation
  • Gender identity (under New York City law)

Our practice covers all employment law discrimination claims alleged under city, state and federal law. We also represent women who have experienced workplace discrimination based on their pregnancy status. Each law differs slightly in its language. We have worked extensively with claims falling under these provisions and have a clear understanding of the nuances.

We find that our clients are often surprised to be in an employment discrimination situation. When it happens to them, they are unsure where to turn for help or what course of action to take. We assure our clients that we understand their concerns. We understand how easily the outcome of a case can affect a person's career, livelihood, reputation and family security.
