Moore Kuehn seeks to hold employers of all kinds liable for violations of state and federal employment laws. These lawsuits can take the form of personal lawsuits or employment class action lawsuits, allowing many employees who were wronged by the same employment law violations to join together in a single lawsuit. Types of employment law cases include workplace discrimination for race, sex, religion or sexual preference, unpaid overtime claims, minimum wage violations, employee misclassification cases, WARN Act violations, and Wage Theft Prevention Act violations, and sexual harassment.
Unique to New York employment law is the ban of mandatory arbitration clauses for sexual harassment claims. Unlike most states, New York contracts requiring arbitration for sexual harassment, except where inconsistent with federal law, will be prohibited, unless such arbitration clauses are contained in a collective bargaining agreement. Any such provision included in a contract is considered null and void. See New York Civil Practice Law and Rules section 7515; https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/laws/CVP/7515.
Moore Kuehn is experienced handling sexual harassment claims and has obtained hundreds of thousands of dollars for claims involving sexual harassment and hostile work environment. Victims of sexual harassment or hostile work environment should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
