SEVERANCE NEGOTIATION ATTORNEY IN NEW YORK
We provide immediate legal advice concerning Severance Agreements. If you were just fired, and need help understanding your severance agreement, we are New York Employment Attorneys skilled and experienced with Severance Agreements and Severance Negotiations with all major employers.
NON-COMPETITION AND NON-SOLICITATION AGREEMENTS
As New York Employment Attorneys we cannot stand non-competition and non-solicitation agreements and make every attempt to remove or void them whenever possible. These agreements are unduly restrictive and hurt employees and the economy. No employee ever voluntarily agreed to these agreements, they are forced on our clients on a take or leave it basis. Our clients never negotiated the terms of the non-compete and often had very little time to review them long-term. We often file suit in court to declare the agreements void because they are unreasonable in their time frame, overreaching on their geographic scope and just simply restrict our clients from working in their chosen profession.
RACIAL AND NATIONAL ORIGIN DISCRIMINATION
It is illegal to treat employees differently because of their race and national origin. It is rare to hear comments of a racial tone and more common to find subsurface discrimination taking the form of disparate treatment favoring one race or national origin over another. As New York Employment Attorneys it is our job to prosecute illegal racial and national origin discrimination in the workplace.
WAGE AND OVERTIME CLAIMS
You have a legal right to be paid the federal and state minimum wage and to receive overtime compensation for all hours over forty hours per week. Employees must keep track of their hours if they believe they are not receiving the correct level of pay, as many employers may not. We also see misclassification of employees as salaried workers who should be paid hourly. Contact one of our New York Employment Attorneys today.
SEXUAL ORIENTATION AND TRANSGENDER DISCRIMINATION (LGBTQ)
It is now illegal for employers and co-workers to discriminate against you at work due to your sexual orientation and transgender status. Although attitudes are slow to change, you can be assured that your rights will be protected when you work with our New York Employment Attorneys at Carey & Associates, P.C. Contact us today.
Once you have complained about discrimination you have engaged in what is referred to as “protected activity”. Any adverse action that your employer takes against you after this point could be used to demonstrate that it was taken in retaliation for your engaging in this protected activity. Contact our New York Employment Attorneys today.
Age Discrimination Employment Attorneys
If you are over age 40 you are protected against discrimination based on your age. Employers cannot condition your job based on your age, but they always do. We know this and have discovered all the nuances of how age discrimination occurs, we can see the patterns in every story. A majority of age claims occur to employees ages 50-65, this is the age range when companies view these employees as too expensive from a compensation and benefits perspective. Like clockwork, employees will build trumped up subjective complaints about well-regarded employees and replace them with substantially younger ones. But beware, not all state and federal age discrimination laws are the same. Under federal law, employees must demonstrate that their age was the primary reason why they were fired or otherwise adversely treated. Think 85% or better that your age was the issue. However, under many state laws, the burden is much lower, employees must only show their age was a substantial motivating factor in the employer’s decision making. Think of a 51% chance or better that your age was the issue.
Disability Discrimination and Reasonable Accommodation Employment Attorneys
Carey & Associates, P.C. has been handling disability discrimination and accommodation claims for more than twenty five years. If you are disabled and your employer is treating you differently because of your disability or your need for reasonable accommodation, we can level the playing field with your employer. We believe in keeping clients employed and we will try any strategy to achieve this goal.
