Civil Rights Lawyers in Rockland County and Orange County, New York Protect Municipalities and Public Employees
Raising immunity defenses against federal, state and local claims
Municipalities and the public employees who work for them are under constant scrutiny. Recognizing that a high risk of liability could interfere with the government’s ability to function, the concept of immunity arose during the last century. Several federal and state laws protect public workers and governments from lawsuits under certain circumstances, and place caps on the amount of recoverable damages available through the civil courts. These statutes govern claims against the United States, New York, Orange County, Rockland County, New City, Goshen and other Hudson Valley municipalities.
Burke, Miele, Golden & Naughton, LLP has represented government agencies and public employees throughout the Hudson Valley, New York region for over 30 years. Our Rockland County and Orange County attorneys fight for justice for governments and the people who serve our communities.
Title VII claims
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age or disability. Although this landmark statute protects the rights of workers, unfounded claims under this provision often generate unnecessary civil litigation. Our lawyers assertively defend the government and its employees in these complex employment matters.
