Employment Law

Experienced, Aggressive Employment Law Representation

Employment law is complex and ever changing. Clients confronted with difficult employment law matters will find it extremely beneficial to work with attorneys who are knowledgeable in the practice of employment law.  At Archer, Byington, Glennon & Levine, we will use every means within the law to resolve your case .  We provide experienced legal representation and counsel in all aspects of employment law. We will work one-on-one with you to navigate this complex area of law and help you determine where you stand under the various federal and state employment laws. Early resolution through mediation or ADR (alternative dispute resolution) is often advantageous. However, in cases where litigation is your best alternative, we have the  litigation experience needed to protect your interests and achieve your objectives, whether in Court or before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the New York State Division of Human Rights.

Employee Rights Counseling
We consult with our prospective clients first to discuss your unique circumstances so that we may evaluate your employment situation in detail and advise you as to whether your rights have been violated.  Our years of experience as employment lawyers and knowledge of both state and federal employment laws provide us with the tools to assist you in reviewing your employment law claims in numerous areas, including:

  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964;
  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA);
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA);
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA); and,
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).

We can also review potential discrimination claims based on allegations of bias due to race, ethnicity, religion, disability or pregnancy, or sexual orientation/identity.

Our attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of wage-and-hour litigation, including claims raised under the Fair Labor Standards Act or New York State wage laws, as well as state laws governing discrimination, employment contracts, wrongful termination, and non-compete agreements.

In appropriate cases, we attain fair resolutions by negotiating enhanced severance packages, which may provide sufficient financial cushions to allow clients to transition to their next jobs. These negotiations address related issues that arise in severance package negotiations, including relief from non-compete agreements, extending medical benefits, and stock options. In the event our efforts to negotiate a reasonable severance package are not successful, the next step to consider is litigation.

Depending on the nature of your claim, some cases may be handled on a contingency-fee basis while others may require a retainer.  All aspects of your potential case will be discussed and reviewed prior to your retention
