Labor and Employment

Labor and Employment

Our attorneys have extensive experience serving business clients in all aspects of the increasingly complex fields of employment law and labor relations.  

Employers in the private and public sectors must comply with an overwhelming number of laws and regulations at both the federal and state level. And noncompliance — even if it’s inadvertent — can prove costly in both dollars and management time.

Our goal is to ensure employers are compliant in order to prevent lawsuits and other legal claims from occurring in the first place. While even the best protective measures will not prevent all suits and claims, having the appropriate guidelines and processes in place can prove significant in defending against such legal actions.

Topic areas include:

Human Resources — Employer policies and workplace rules; employee handbooks; performance reviews; employee discipline; termination.

Employment Contracts — Compensation and benefits; job duties and responsibilities; for-cause termination; restrictive covenants.

Non-Compete and Non-Solicitation Agreements — Limit subsequent employment with competitors; protection of confidential information and trade secrets; prohibition against soliciting employees, clients, or customers.

Employee Classification — Employee or independent contractor? Exempt or non-exempt for purposes of overtime eligibility?

Our attorneys have significant experience representing employers in a variety of forums, including the state and federal courts, and New York State and the United States Departments of Labor.
