EMPLOYMENT & LABOR LAW
If you’re an employee who is the victim of an illegal employment practice, The Woodworth Law Firm can help you with a wide range of legal issues such as wage and hour violations, employee discrimination and harassment, medical and leave violations, severance negotiation and contract disputes, whistle blower violations, retaliation, and wrongful termination. In the past, we have represented and achieved favorable results for many of our clients, often against major corporations including:
If you have been subject to discrimination or harassment because of your age, race, national origin, religion, gender, or disability, or if you have suffered retaliation because you sought the protections of the law and spoke out against an illegal practice, we can help you.
If your employer has wrongfully reduced or withheld your pay, demoted you, or wrongfully terminated you, you have legal rights that we can protect and defend.
If you are a whistleblower who reported illegal behavior to your own employer or to government agencies, New York laws protect you and we can assist.
If you need time off from work for health and caretaking reasons, The Woodworth Law Firm will consult with you and discuss your situation because your employer may be required to grant you that time off as well as pay you wages.
Are you facing a layoff? Have you been offered a severance package? Is it fair? At The Woodworth Law Firm, we help employees negotiate the terms of severance agreements.
Talking with an experienced lawyer can help you understand your rights and what options you have for enforcing those rights.
Strict statutes of limitations apply, so contact us today.
