Protections For Victims Of Domestic Violence

New York State and City laws prohibit employers with four or more employees from discriminating on the basis of an individual’s status as a victim of domestic violence. New York employers may not fire, refuse to hire, harass, or otherwise discriminate against an employee because he or she has been the victim of domestic violence, including stalking. There is no similar federal law for this protected class.
