We advise employers and employees in the full range of disputes at every level, from personal claims of discrimination, harassment, wrongful discharge, defamation and invasion of privacy, to corporate disputes with employees over employment contracts, non-compete clauses, non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements 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 provide answers to your questions and compliance issues under federal, state and local wage-hour and employment laws and employee notice requirements such as those mandated by the WARN Act.
In court, we prosecute and defend actions brought against corporations, financial institutions, not-for-profit organizations and hospitals involving claims of disability, age discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, race discrimination, national origin discrimination, and sexual harassment. We have experience litigating these cases before the state and federal courts, the United States Equal Opportunity Commission, the New York City Commission on Human Rights and the New York State Division of Human Rights.
