FACING EMPLOYMENT DISCRIMINATION?

Justice for You

Experiencing and surviving discrimination or sexual harassment in the workplace is a very difficult experience. Workplace discrimination or sexual harassment can undermine your job performance and personal life, as well as damage your sense of well-being and dignity. We will work with you to achieve the justice you deserve and restore a sense of control over your life.

EMPLOYER WAGE THEFT AND EXPLOITATION

Proven Success

Whether you work as wait staff or in the trades, as an administrators or as a professional, workers are often times exploited by their employers. Wage theft and exploitation are not problems limited to only one type or class of worker.  Most workers do not even know that they are being systematically deprived of wages and benefits to which they are entitled to under the laws of the United States, New York State and New York City.

I am absolutely over the moon about the outcome of my arbitration!  I got to see their faces when the manager had to hire me back. 
I have only good and kind things to say about how you handled the arbitration.  Please know that I am most grateful to you for this victory."

After a spotless record for 25 years I was shocked and embarrassed that the DOE could suspend me.  Thank you so much for being patient with me especially when I called you repeatedly and needed reassurance.  I am so happy that the event is over!
