Licensed in New York and New Jersey State Court, the Southern District of New York, Eastern District of New York and District of New Jersey, Mr. Salaman’s most recent accomplishments include successfully arguing a summary judgment motion in a race discrimination case in New York County, a significant victory which reinforced the broad protections of the New York City Human Rights Law.

Unfortunately, many employers in New York and New Jersey continue to fail to meet their legal obligations to their workers. Their misconduct ranges from discriminating against employees because of their sex, race, religion, pregnancy or sexual orientation to failing to pay the proper minimum wage and overtime compensation.
Furthermore, some employees, justifiably, may be afraid that they will lose their jobs if they complain about being mistreated at work. Thankfully, anti-retaliation laws protect employees who complain of discrimination in the workplace.
