Labor / Employment
Our practice emphasizes the fundamental relationship in business: that between employer and employee. Our attorneys have more than four decades of experience handling employment issues on behalf of both employers and employees.
Employment law is both complex and rapidly developing. Our focus on this practice area keeps us abreast of developments in the statutes and case law that directly affect our clients: the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, Wage and Hour Act, ERISA, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and many others.
We understand that when you have an employment problem, you want quick and practical help. You want guidance from attorneys who focus on finding practical solutions to problems, not esoteric discussions of theory or meaningless lists of what you can't do. And whether employer or employee, you want advice that aims to keep you out of expensive litigation that chews up time and resources. As in few other areas of the law, in employment law an ounce of prevention truly is worth a pound of cure.
When litigation becomes necessary, as it sometimes does, we have the experience and resources to help. Our attorneys are highly experienced in litigating employment cases in federal and state courts, in administrative agency proceedings before the EEOC and New Jersey Division on Civil Rights, and in the Workers' Compensation court.
Some of the services that we provide to employers include:
- General employment counseling
- Employee handbooks
- Executive compensation plans
- Sexual harassment policies
- Internal investigations
- Training for your managers and employees
- Litigation of all employment issues
Among our services to employees are:
