For Employees

Helping New York Employees Understand And Defend Their Workplace Rights

The employment and labor attorneys of Raff & Becker, LLP, are experienced in representing employees throughout the five boroughs of New York City, Long Island (Nassau County and Suffolk County), Westchester County and the surrounding metropolitan areas.

Employment law is always changing. The lawyers at Raff & Becker, LLP aim to not only help clients enforce their rights, but also to educate their clients so they may be better prepared for the future. Experience representing both employers and employees makes our lawyers versatile and well-rounded resources.

We are prepared to handle all aspects of employment law, including such areas as discrimination based on age, sex, race, religion, national origin, disability and other statuses protected by New York City, New York state and federal law; claims of sexual harassment; denial of leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act; unpaid wages and overtime and other violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and New York Labor Law; and misclassification of employees as independent contractors to avoid paying benefits.

We have appeared before the State and Federal courts and at government agencies such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), State Division of Human Rights and New York City Commission on Human Rights, United States and New York State Departments of Labor, as well as at arbitrations and mediations. We can be trusted to represent your best interests.
