In addition to discrimination laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII), The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA), The Equal Pay Act of 1963 (EPA), The Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 (PDA), New York State Human Rights Law, and New York City Human Rights Law, employers are subject to many other laws protecting employees.
We will fight to hold your employer accountable for violating any of your legal rights; including, legally required minimum wages, overtime wages, leave of absence, whistle blowing rights, right to organize and bargain collectively, as well as many other legal rights you may have against your employer. If you believe you are entitled to overtime compensation that your employer has withheld and/or failed to pay you, or your employer has failed to pay you minimum wages and/or retained a portion of your tips, or you believe your employer has violated any of your legal rights, including, but not limited to, discrimination, harassment, sexual harassment, and retaliation; please contact us as soon as possible for a FREE phone consultation.
Terminated employees may receive severance agreements or separaiton agreements from their employer. These agreements pretty much always contain a release where the employee releases the employee's right to file a charge and/or sue the employer with some very limited exceptions. In exchange for the release, employers offer employees additional consideration also known as severance payment. If you have been given a severance agreement or separation agreement and/or general release by your employer / former employer, it is very important that you contact an employment attorney as soon as possible.
The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) protects employees' rights to organize and collectively bargain with their employer and engage in other concerted activity.
The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) establishes among other other standards, minimum wage and overtime pay standards. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, non-exempt covered employees must be paid at least one and a half (1.5) times their regular rate of pay for hours worked in excess of forty (40) hours in a workweek (overtime).
The Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) was enacted for safe and healthful working conditions for workers. New York State and New York City employment laws also provide additional protection for employees. There are numerous other employment laws that your employer may be subject to as well. If you believe your employer has violated any of your legal rights, my law firm can assist in holding your employer accountable and obtaining compensation you may be entitled to under the law.
Employment Laws: Other employment laws, include, but are not limited to, The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), The Labor Management Relations Act of 1947 (LMRA), Whistleblower laws, New York Labor Laws (NYLL), as well as many additional Federal, New York State, and New York City employment laws.
