Labor and Employment Lawyer NY
Sooner or later, most employees will experience a lay-off, or other form of employment termination. Especially during difficult economic times, these occurrences are becoming more frequent.
Like everybody else, you treasure your job and are worried you might lose it during these uncertain times. You are afraid that your employer might suddenly fire you and that there's nothing you can do about it.
Employers may cite the doctrine of law called "at-will employment" which essentially gives them the freedom to terminate a worker's employment for any or no reason at all.
Though the doctrine has been practiced over 100 years, the more recent civil rights movements that began around the 1960s have spawned a body of law that can override the at-will employment principle to protect employee rights. These "employment laws" also uphold the rights of former employees and candidates for employment.
If you feel you are or were being treated wrongly by an employer you may have recourse under the employment laws of the City of Syracuse, the State of New York or federally, under the laws of the United States. Labor and employment lawyers in New York, Levine & Blit can help!
