Employment Law

Employment Law

Employment litigation is one of the most common expenses for businesses in New York. State and federal employment laws, Department of Labor regulations, and administrative regulations can seem convoluted and confusing.  We regularly assist employers and employees with a range of matters including:

+ Employment Agreements, Confidentiality Agreements, Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDAs) and termination agreements
+ Non Competition and Non Solicitation Agreements
+ Employment litigation including religious, gender, sex, age based discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, disability, harassment
+ Wage claims including bonuses, overtime, and minimum wage
+ Breach of employment contract
+ Drafting employment manuals and other employment documents
+ Harassment and discrimination training

Examples of some of our recent work include:

We obtained a dismissal for our client in the fashion industry who was sued by a former contractor for benefits, back wages, overtime, and other claims.

We have assisted numerous individuals obtain more favorable terms and compensation in their severance packages.

We obtained a favorable settlement for a client who alleged racial and religious discrimination and pregnancy discrimination.

We have handled numerous Department of Labor investigations on behalf of clients in the food and restaurant industries regarding failure to pay wages, overtime, and other alleged employment violations.
