Westchester County Employment Litigation Attorney

Our White Plains attorneys represent clients in employment litigation. We focus on defending employers against employee claims in the financial services, hospitality, retail, and all other types of businesses and nonprofit organizations. Collectively, the lawyers at Yankwitt LLP have more than 100 years of combined legal experience and are known as attorneys who provide efficient and effective service.

Examples of Our Employment Litigation Cases

We appear in federal and state courts as well as before the New York State Division of Human Rights and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). We defend clients against charges that include:

  • Discrimination based on age, sex, national origin, disability, veteran's status and religion.
  • Workplace harassment and whistleblower retaliation.
  • Employment contract violation.
  • Unlawful termination.
  • Wage and hours violation.
  • Family and Medical Leave Act violation.

We also represent employees in these matters, focusing on financial industry executives such as hedge fund managers with disputed severance contracts, whistleblower disputes, and other sophisticated and complex cases. Our experience and knowledge of the laws allow us to provide these clients with in-depth analysis of their cases and a strong argument for compensation or other remedies. A major strength of the firm is our ability to be effective advocates for either side in employment disputes because we have represented both employees and employers.

Proactive Attorneys

We also offer assistance with developing employment policies designed to prevent employee claims and litigation. We are proactive on behalf of our clients, seeking to protect their interests and the future of their businesses. Clients who have retained us to handle all of their legal needs often take advantage of this service.
