Defending Employment Claims and Lawsuits
When employees bring claims against their employers, there often is significant financial risk. Every company carries a degree of vulnerability to employee claims. Even the most fastidious business can make small errors in compliance or fail to catch its managers or executives in wrongdoing that could lead to a claim from an employee.
The New York lawyers of the Law Office of Peter G. Goodman, PLLC, bring years of experience defending businesses against claims from employees. We take a focused, efficient approach by seeking favorable resolutions swiftly. Our firm will investigate the contents of an employee claim and suggest defense strategies that will eliminate or contain the damage.
We provide strategic, effective representation for local businesses facing claims involving:
- Discrimination based on race, gender, religion, pregnancy, disability and other protected characteristics
- Wage and hour violations
- Employee benefit entitlements
- Sexual harassment
- Breach of employment agreements
Our attorneys understand the laws governing all aspects of employment law, and we know the procedures involved in these claims. The extraordinary experience and knowledge our attorneys bring to our clients’ defense are a tremendous benefit to the businesses we represent.
Each lawsuit or claim is unique, and our response depends largely on the nature of the claim. Regardless of whether the claim is fully defensible or the defense should be focused on mitigating potential damages, we advocate for our clients aggressively and efficiently. At the same time, we strive to minimize defense costs and avoid negative publicity for our clients.
