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, non-compete clauses and other 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.
Our lawyers have vast experience creating employment policies, procedures and programs, and regularly develop seminars and training programs focused on reducing the risk of litigation. When litigation is necessary, we have an impressive record of success for clients in state and federal courts, in arbitration, 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.
