Passionately Fighting For Employees In Discrimination Claims
When an employer treats an employee worse than other employees due to race, national origin, gender, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation or other characteristics, it must be held accountable. Discrimination can involve many actions, including:
- Firing or failing to hire someone
- Demoting or failing to promote an employee
- Creating a hostile or abusive working environment
- Retaliating against an employee for complaining about discrimination
In these or other situations, it is critical to work with lawyers with the knowledge and experience to right these wrongs. At the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates, we are a powerful resource for employees across New York City and beyond.

Helping Our Clients Overcome Obstacles In Discrimination Claims
Workplace discrimination cases are rarely easy. There is almost never a “smoking gun.” Supervisors do not admit to being racist, sexist or homophobic, and they are good at coming up with plausible-sounding reasons for firing you. Further, the New York statute of limitations requires that most employment discrimination cases be filed in court within three years, or filed with the New York State Division of Human Rights within one year. Most federal employment discrimination claims must be filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 300 days.
Former New York State Attorney General G. Oliver Koppell has made fighting employment discrimination a focus of his long career. He has the experience, toughness, and legal sophistication to take on powerful corporations and win.
