I Was a Victim of Employment Discrimination

The State of Connecticut has in place a very comprehensive statutory scheme to deal with employment discrimination, the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act, which strictly prohibits discriminatory practices in employment based on race, color, religious creed, sex, age, gender identity or expression, marital status, national origin, ancestry, present or past history of mental disability, mental retardation, and learning disability or physical disability.

In all practices by an employer, including hiring and firing, an employer’s decision cannot be based on one of the above bases.  In Connecticut, an employer with just 3 or more employees is subject to the state anti-discrimination laws and can be persecuted for violating them.  If an employer is found guilty of employment discrimination there are very serious consequences, both at the state and federal levels.

To ensure your rights are protected in such a discriminatory instance, a Connecticut employment law attorney is a necessity.  The sooner you contact an experienced Connecticut employment law attorney, the sooner they can help you prevent further discrimination by that employer and remedy the discrimination you have already experienced.

If you are the victim of discriminatory practices and treatment in the workplace, the lawyers at Maya Murphy, P.C., can assist you effectively and efficiently.  To schedule an appointment with one of our Employment Law Group attorneys, contact Joseph Maya at 203-221-3100 or by email at
