Putting The Law To Work For Employees
As an employee working in New York, you have rights. If your rights are violated, you have options for holding your employer or other parties accountable. Although it may sound relatively straightforward, the truth is that it can be difficult to assert your rights for fear of retaliation, harassment or other repercussions stemming from co-workers, managers and employers.
Some common types of employment law matters we handle include:
- Overtime claims
- Noncompete agreements
- Tip pooling and other claims affecting restaurant workers
- Failure to pay bonuses, wages, overtimes and severance
- Claims affecting nannies
- Employment contracts
- Discrimination and workplace harassment, including on the basis of one's disability or sexual orientation
- Whistleblower claims and retaliation
Perhaps you have been denied appropriate compensation or you inexplicably lost your job, and you suspect discrimination. If you are being treated unfairly or illegally at work, we can explain how you can hold negligent, discriminatory or abusive employers and co-workers accountable.
When you reach out to our firm, we will listen as you explain your situation and provide you with advice and representation.
