Legal Help for All Employees — Regardless of Pay or Position
At the law office of Shulman Kessler, we provide legal services to employees at all levels throughout New York City and the surrounding area. Our employment law practice covers the full spectrum of legal issues regarding employment, and we focus our efforts solely on representing employees' rights. Our Long Island-based employment law attorneys are among the few who only represent employees, never employers.
There are just some of the employment issues we handle:
- Wrongful termination — If you believe you have been fired illegally, you may be able to sue your employer for lost wages and to protect your co-workers. This includes situations involving employer retaliation for complaints against the company.
- Overtime pay — Most employees are entitled to overtime pay if they work more than 40 hours per week. However, many employers purposefully misclassify workers or outright deny them overtime pay. You have the right to be paid appropriately for the work you do.
- Discrimination — You can be discriminated against in many ways, including because of:
- Class action lawsuits — Employees of the same company facing the same issues may want to band together for leverage over their employer.
- Employment and severance agreements — When starting a new job or leaving an old one, an employer may present you with an employment or severance agreement. It's important that these agreements provide you with all you are entitled to. At Shulman Kessler, we can help ensure that your rights are protected.
- Whistleblower retaliation — It is both your right and responsibility to report work situations that are illegal or make your workplace unsafe. If your employer retaliates against you, it is illegal and needs to be stopped.
We make sure you are heard and that your best interests are represented. Every person who walks through our doors has a unique situation. We take that into account and we find the right solution to your specific problem. We are committed to protecting the rights of all workers.
