New York Employment Litigation Attorneys
Whether your business is involved in a lawsuit alleging the breach of an employment contract, discrimination, underpayment of wages and overtime, or other labor law violations, our attorneys can help. We also draft employment contracts and independent contractor agreements that comply with statutory requirements and minimize the risk of litigation.
Employees in New York are protected by some of the strongest labor laws in the country. While employment in New York is "at will" unless the employment contract states otherwise, New York law strongly protects employees from discrimination, underpayment of wages, workplace safety issues, and breaches of employment contracts and collective bargaining agreements. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the New York Labor Law, and the Fair Labor Standards Act also require employers to pay the attorney's fees of employees who prevail in litigation. This often leads employees and plaintiffs' attorneys to file frivolous actions.
Our Lawyers Know Employment and Labor Law
Our firm's lawyers are experienced in litigating labor and employment law claims, drafting employment contracts, and advising on labor law compliance issues. We help employers navigate the complexities of New York's labor and employment laws, and defend them in investigations by the New York State Department of Labor, New York State Division of Human Rights and New York City Comptroller's Office. The firm's lawyers are particularly familiar with labor and employment law issues impacting the construction industry, such as prevailing wage claims under New York Labor Law 220 and the federal Davis Bacon Act, and employee classification issues under the New York Fair Play Act and New York Workers Compensation Law. The firm's lawyers have litigated class action lawsuits seeking to recover prevailing wages and overtime and have secured the dismissal of frivolous claims by terminated workers.
