Employment

An integral part of the firm’s practice is the representation of individual employees.

Firm lawyers advise individuals and negotiate on their behalf concerning employment contracts, severance packages and other employment matters. When appropriate, we sue on their behalf, over matters such as unlawful discharge, employment discrimination and unpaid compensation and benefits.

We also offer representation to freelancer workers in lawsuits for nonpayment under New York City’s Freelance Isn’t Free Act.  A presentation we have drafted on this topic is here.

Over many years, we have successfully represented individuals in a wide range of industries, including finance, media, garment, publishing and health care, often recovering substantial sums for our clients.
