New York Blacklisting Attorneys
In some cases, the circumstances leading up to the termination of employment can strain your relationship with an employer. When ending a business relationship, both workers and employers can say and do things that they normally wouldn’t. While a business relationship may suffer when you leave a job, this should not dictate whether you are able to secure a job in the future.
If a former employer is actively working to undermine your ability to get a new job, they are infringing on your rights as a worker. Blacklisting employees is one way that employers attempt to block their former employees from moving on and obtaining employment elsewhere. The practice of blacklisting is an abuse of power, and employers who engage in it should be held accountable and face legal consequences when they try to threaten the livelihoods of their past employees.

We stand with working people who face the categorical discrimination of blacklisting and fight for their rights to earn a living. If you believe you have been blacklisted, call our office today at (212) 779-0057 to discuss your case.
Do I Need a Blacklisting Lawyer?
Employers have a certain amount of power and credibility in their industries. They have access to other businesses and are able to use their influence to drive certain outcomes. There is a practical and advantageous function to businesses working together, but when employers conspire to block workers from getting a job, their power needs to be checked.
In a brief conversation, a lawyer can evaluate if there is obvious legal action that can be taken against your previous employer. Additionally, if your former employer is in part attempting to prevent you from getting a job based on your gender, race, disability, or religion, this is also a serious form of discrimination.
