New York City Employment Litigation Attorney

New York Employer Defense Lawyer for Clients Worldwide

National and international corporations with business operations in New York face a confusing array of state and federal laws regarding discrimination and employment rights. The Barry Fischer Law Firm has been providing local legal counsel for business interests involved in employment litigation in New York for more than 40 years.

Cost-Effective Strategies Aimed at a Quick and Fair Settlement of the Claim

Protecting your bottom line from a costly jury verdict is always our primary focus. Whether your company is facing a single lawsuit for discrimination or wrongful termination or requires defense against a class action, we pursue effective strategies to resolve the matter through experienced negotiations involving age or gender issues.

Options for Resolving Employment Litigation

We have experience resolving employment disputes and lawsuits in several forums in New York:

  • Alternative dispute resolution (ADR): We offer a flat-fee payment option for many types of ADR services. We represent businesses in employment litigation cases brought before an arbitration hearing, typically through the American Arbitration Association (AAA). In arbitration, parties agree to accept the decision of an independent arbiter or arbiters assigned to the case. If you choose a mediation option, we investigate and prepare cases carefully and negotiate aggressively to protect your interests in matters seeking a resolution in front of an independent mediator.
  • New York governmental agencies: Employees in New York have the right to bring their grievances to an agency established to handle claims of harassment, discrimination and other violations of workers' rights. We are experienced legal counsel at agency hearings.
  • Court: Often, an employment litigation case requires seeking a just decision through the courts. Our trial experience in matters involving New York and federal employment law, including the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), puts you at an advantage against less experienced opposing counsel.

We have experience representing national and international clients involved in employment litigation matters in New York, including claims such as:

  • Sexual harassment: These cases often require intensive investigation. Attorney Barry Fischer has conducted numerous seminars for companies and executives regarding appropriate behavior and relationships in the workplace.
  • Discrimination: Including hiring, promotion and wrongful termination claims based on gender, religion, ethnicity, age and social group. We also defend clients facing accusations of violating the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and state and federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
  • Employment contract disputes: Highly compensated executives and employees often perform under the terms of an employment contract or agreement. We represent businesses involved in litigation or disputes involving compensation and performance expectations.

From our offices in New York City, our attorneys resolve disputes and represent clients in litigation matters throughout the United States. Contact us to arrange an initial consultation with one of our experienced New York City employment litigation attorneys today.
