Labor and Employment Attorneys that Work Tirelessly in Defending your Business
Labor and employment litigation at both the federal state and levels are one of the most common types of litigation seen today. When an employment matter cannot be resolved through negotiation, our litigators have the knowledge and experience to help your company achieve a strong result at cost efficient rates.
Wage and Hour Litigation
There has been a tremendous rise in wage and hour lawsuits brought against small and mid sized businesses. Such cases are among the most dangerous source of employment related liability facing business owners today as under the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Law, an employers’ liability can stretch back as far as six years. Our attorneys provide effective representation in lawsuits involving unpaid overtime claims including FLSA collective and state class actions.
Unlawful Termination Actions
Our employment attorneys vigorously defend our clients against alleged violations of discrimination before federal and state courts and government agencies. This representation includes claims of sex, race, age, disability, religion, pregnancy, hostile work environment, and all other forms of discrimination.
Retaliation and Whistleblowing
Over the last ten years there has been a significant amount of new legislation that has resulted in numerous protections for whistleblowers. These retaliation laws provide protections from wage and hour to discrimination claims. Our attorneys can assist your business in navigating the muddy waters of retaliation and whistleblower laws.
Employment Contract Enforcement and Trade Secrets
When an employee leaves a company, they often seek to directly compete with their former employer. Our attorneys have experience seeking temporary restraining orders and cease desist actions in state and federal court. We can help ensure that your former clients do not illegally directly compete against your company through the use of your company’s trade secrets or confidential client lists.
