New York Employment Lawyers

Serving Clients Throughout New York City and the Surrounding Areas

Over the past several decades, the workplace in the United States has become increasingly regulated. Dozens of federal and state statutes, such as the Family Medical Leave Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Occupational Safety and Health Act, and the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, set forth strict guidelines on employment procedures which impact both employers and employees. With the web of federal, state and local regulations becoming more complex, it is important that you consult an experienced employment lawyer regarding all workplace-related issues.

Employment Lawyers Serving New York City and Beyond

Understanding and obtaining your rights in the workplace can be challenging and intimidating. With counsel on staff and human resources teams on site, the legal resources available to employers often exceed those available to the individual employee. We understand the legal tactics used by small and large employers and are able to provide effective counsel to employees to help protect their rights.

Our firm is available to review your employment agreement, including assessing the terms of salary, commission, bonuses, non-solicitation covenants and non-compete agreements which may be included. If the terms of this agreement are unsuitable or inequitable, we will assist you in the negotiations or even litigation to amend the terms of the contract.

If you have been wrongfully terminated or victimized by unlawful business practices, our lawyers will work with you to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve. In addition to representing employees who have suffered from breach of contract claims, wrongful discharge and various employment torts, we have extensive experience in discrimination claims.

Keeping Up With State and Federal Regulations

The United States Congress enacted the first federal employment law in 1888. Now, more than 180 federal laws mandate how employers may and may not treat their employees. In addition, every state in the union has its own employment laws that employers must comply with.

Federal employment laws cover every phase of the employee-employer relationship: applying, hiring, training, working, paying, promoting, disciplining, and terminating the employer-employee relationship.

Serving Your Best Interests

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1974 prohibits employers from discriminating against employees because of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Despite the efforts of the federal and state government to outlaw these unfair practices, employment discrimination continues to persist in many workplaces. If you think you have been the victim of discrimination at work, you should contact an experienced attorney immediately. Our firm can work with you to determine if there are grounds for a Title VII claim, assess damages and determine just compensation, draft the necessary documents, and represent you in all trial proceedings.
