New York City Employment Lawyer
Every day workers across New York City and around the nation suffer from unfair actions and illegal employment practices. While there are many federal, state and local laws on the books that are designed to protect our nation’s workers, employers often take actions in the workplace that violate these laws and the legal rights of their employees.
Federal and state laws require employers to pay employees fair wages for the time that they work. These laws also mandate that employers pay premium wages to certain categories of workers who work overtime. Employers are also required to provide their employees with a work environment that is free from discrimination and harassment. When a worker believes that he or she has been discriminated against in the workplace or that his or her legal rights have been violated, the worker may be able to take legal action against her employer.

Providing Strong Legal Representation for NYC Employees
When you are involved in an employment related dispute with your employer you need to have strong legal team on your side. Your company is going to assemble a powerful team of attorneys to protect their interests, so you need to be sure you have an experienced employment lawyer who will protect and represent you to obtain the best possible recovery or settlement in your case.
We understand that the decision to file a claim is difficult, but It is important to keep in mind that the law has very strong protections to prevent retaliation. Employers can be held liable for a separate claim of retaliation if your complained about or opposed an unlawful discriminatory practice such as sexual harassment, or otherwise participated in a claim or lawsuit. You are also protected from retaliation (even if you are mistaken in your claim) as long as you have a “good faith” belief that your employer committed or permitted an illegal or discriminatory practice.
