We represent corporate and executive clients in the full range of employment disputes, ranging from discrimination, harassment and wrongful discharge claims, to disputes involving employment contracts, and restrictive covenants.
We help employers comply with, and face challenges under, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and equivalent New York State, New York City and New Jersey human rights laws. We also counsel on compliance issues falling under federal, state and local wage-hour and employment laws, and related employee notice requirements such as those mandated by the WARN Act.
We represent companies and key employees in connection with disputes involving non-solicitation of customers and/or employees, non-competition provisions and the disclosure of confidential or proprietary information and trade secrets. We understand that certain employment disputes require immediate action, and often involve applications seeking expedited relief.
We have an impressive record of success for clients in state and federal courts, in arbitration, in FINRA and before government agencies including the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission, the New York City Commission on Human Rights, and the New York State Division of Human Rights.
