Issues relating to employment are some of the most sensitive and complicated matters.
Our attorneys at Stagg Wabnik Law Group have the know-how to navigate this complex area of law. Whether you are a business or an individual, we will use our skills and experience to get you the best possible outcome.
Labor & Employment Law
We understand that the discrimination or harassment that you experience at work is very stressful. We will compassionately guide you through this ordeal. With our firm, you will not just get pushed through the system. You will receive personal attention and care. Our attorneys have the experience and fight to get you the best possible recovery.
Employment law’s most common violations are wage and hour violations. These violations include failure to pay overtime, proper commissions, or the minimum wage. We will aggressively work to get you the payment you deserve when these violations occur.
Stagg Wabnik Law Group also represents individuals who need help when confronted with employment contracts and discharge and separation agreements. We negotiate on your behalf to ensure you receive the rights to which you are entitled so that you can leave your job or start a new job without undue stress. With Stagg Wabnik Law Group’s securities attorneys, we are well-equipped to address these issues specific to the securities industry.
The firm also represents union members, including teachers, brought to arbitration or disciplinary hearings. We also handle appeals after a hearing. We can guide you through the process and vigorously advocate for you.
We pride ourselves on preventing and limiting potential exposure by proactively guiding you through the web of statutes such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Family Medical Leave Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII, and the related New York and New York City laws. We are available to provide day-to-day advice on labor and employment issues--the cornerstone to preventing liability. We provide anti-discrimination and harassment training, draft and revise employee handbooks, develop effective employment policies, and provide guidance for audits and investigations. The Stagg Wabnik Law Group employment team regularly drafts and negotiates employment, severance, independent contractor, and commission agreements. We work closely with our securities practice attorneys to advise our clients on employment issues specific to the securities and finance industry. In addition, we advise clients on union issues and represent employers in grievance arbitrations and related litigation.
Despite preventive measures, disputes do arise. Our employment attorneys are experienced and aggressive litigators. Whether an administrative charge, discrimination case, wage and hour litigation, or other employment matter, we will skillfully and effectively fight on your behalf. We have a results-oriented philosophy designed around understanding your business, efficiently resolving disputes, and, if need be, litigating the case.
Businesses should also be aware of protecting confidential and proprietary information, such as customer lists, marketing analyses, and business models. Protecting vital business intelligence and data prevents corporate espionage and unfair competition from former employees. We can help by ensuring that your business uses enforceable non-compete, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure agreements. If a signee breaches the agreement and litigation is necessary, we are ready to fight to enforce these agreements and protect your business.
