Employment Issues

Employment law is a complex and continuously changing area of law that requires a significant amount of time to master.  For the past ten years, I have devoted a significant amount of time developing a high level of proficiency of this field of law.  I have litigated discrimination, harassment and retaliation cases under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and the New Jersey Conscientious Protection Act.  I have also brought employment actions pursuant to violations of employee handbooks and company policies.  I have negotiated more money and/or greater benefits for over a hundred cases involving negotiations of severance packages.  I have successfully litigated or settled employment actions against Fortune Five Hundred companies, the State of New Jersey, and business large and small.  I have also successfully defended a handful of small businesses in these cases.

I am an active member of the National Employment Lawyers Association.  This is a prestigious organization for focuses on the prosecution of employee claims in the area of employment law.  I communicate with members of NELA on a regular basis in the preparation and litigation of employment matters.

A few of the most common types of employment or labor law matters that I handle on a regular basis are:

  • Wrongful Termination
  • Sexual Harassment
  • Whistleblower Retaliation
  • Severance/Separation Package Negotiations
  • Unlawful Terminations Due to Pregnancy 
  • Age, Race, Disability and Gender Discrimination
  • Qui Tam
  • Civil Rights
  • Administrative Law
  • Public Employee Disciplinary Actions
  • Emotional Distress
  • Defamation Slander/Libel
  • Employment Contract Negotiations

On select employment cases, I offer “Contingency” fees to my clients.  This means that you pay nothing to I unless we recover money for you.  I also offer hybrid retainer options where there is a sharing of risks and benefits in prosecuting a lawsuit between my clients and myself.
