Employment Law Defense

American businesses are experiencing a significant increase in claims made by employees (or former employees) asserting wrongful employment termination or discrimination on the basis of gender, race, age, disability, sexual harassment or other legally-protected status. The proper response to such claims, both at the onset and working toward resolution, is central to a business' ability to minimize the potential for significant liability exposure. The Firm offers its clients a wealth of experience before all federal and state courts and equal employment administrative agencies regulating employment discrimination issues. We also provide effective counseling which can minimize the occurrence of such discrimination claims under the New York State Human Rights Law, federal civil rights laws and federal laws mandating equal employment opportunities, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.

Employment law defense also includes advice, counsel and representation of employers with respect to state and federal wage and hour laws, union organization campaigns, proceedings before various administrative agencies such as the National Labor Relations Board, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, federal and state Departments of Labor, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, New York State Division of Human Rights, etc.
