Accomplished Employment and Labor Law Attorneys Offer Sound Counsel to Management

Experienced firm helps businesses manage issues relating to workers

Regardless of your company’s size or the industry in which it operates, complying with labor and employment laws and maintaining positive relations with employees is an essential aspect of a successful business. Braverman, PLLC provides employers throughout New York, New Jersey and nationally with day-to-day counsel on compliance issues, representation during the collective bargaining process and strong advocacy in cases stemming from worker complaints. Whatever the particular task entails, our knowledgeable employment lawyers are dedicated to helping your business achieve its objectives.

Dedicated lawyers advise clients on compliance issues 

Keeping apprised of the latest developments in state, local and federal laws that control workplace matters can seem like a full-time occupation. To keep you focused on your real job — running and promoting your business — our firm handles all types of compliance matters.  We can simplify the complex standards associated with workers’ compensation issues and laws such as: 

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
  • Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act (LMRDA)
  • Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA)
  • Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA)
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)

Bringing in a qualified attorney to assist with compliance concerns could be a valuable investment that avoids serious and expensive problems down the road.

Skillful advocates handle various types of employment disputes

Even a careful employer is subject to legal disputes that can drain company resources if those disputes are not handled correctly. Our firm advocates on behalf of small, medium and large businesses in a wide range of cases stemming from:

  • Discrimination and harassment claims — If a worker alleges that they were victimized by unlawful discrimination or sexual harassment, we investigate the claim thoroughly and press to defeat unwarranted claims.
  • Termination and severance matters — Regardless of the reason, it’s important to end an employment relationship in the right manner. We advise clients on dismissal grounds, severance agreements, noncompete rules and nondisclosure pacts.
  • Union contracts and grievances — Our knowledge of labor law helps businesses deal with collective bargaining disputes, individual grievances, and allegations of illegal anti-union activity.
  • Wage and benefit disputes — We counsel and defend employers in wage and overtime disputes and explain the often intricate details associated with actions arising from retirement and health insurance plans. In each instance, we seek to limit problems and expense associated with these conflicts.
  • OSHA complaints — Safety is a paramount concern, but the relevant rules are complex. When a concern exists, our lawyers develop an effective strategy for companies.

With a strong background in administrative matters, settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration, and trial advocacy, we work diligently to obtain the best possible solution in an expedient manner.

Knowledgeable advisers draft effective workplace documents

Without strong workplace rules and clear, enforceable contracts, your business could be at risk. Drawing on our experience in litigation and advisory matters, we create documents that help safeguard what you’ve built. These documents include:

  • Workplace manuals and policies
  • Employment and union contracts
  • Noncompete and nondisclosure agreements
  • Termination and severance documents
  • Disciplinary documentation when needed
  • Other Human Resources and personnel documents
  • Reports on workplace incidents

For situations involving these and other documents, we don’t just draft the paperwork but also ensure that you are comfortable with the particular language and that each word accurately reflects your interests.
