Our Firm represents clients in employment legal matters in New Jersey and Pennsylvania before state and federal trial and appellate courts and also administrative agencies. In addition, we provide legal representation in alternative dispute resolution, such as, arbitration and mediation.
Our Firm covers a broad range of labor and employment law. We represent clients who have been discriminated against in the workplace on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability (physical or mental), pregnancy, veteran status and other issues relating to employment discrimination, such as, harassment in the workplace, wrongful termination, breach of contract, employment tort claims, whistleblower claims, retaliation, ERISA, non-compete agreements, workers' compensation. Some applicable laws include the Civil Rights Act; Americans with Disabilities ("ADA") (federal and state), Age Discrimination in Employment Act ("ADEA"); Family Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") (federal and state); Equal Pay Act ("EPA"), Fair Labor Standards Act ("FLSA"); Worker Adjustment & Retraining Notification Act ("WARN") and Older Workers Benefits Protection Act ("OWBPA"). In New Jersey, employees have additional protection under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination ("NJ LAD"). Also, we help clients with severance agreements and other issues relating to their employment.
While there are many laws in place on the federal and state level to protect employees, it is unfortunate that many times employers are not in compliance with such laws. It is disheartening when an employee finds himself or herself in a situation in which he or she is discriminated against unlawfully and then on top of the wrongful discrimination, an employee experiences retaliation as a result of reporting the discrimination to the employer. Retaliatory behavior compounds what the employee is already enduring, which may be a hostile environment.
If you have experienced employment discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination, or other employment law matter, it is important to seek the guidance of an attorney who is knowledgeable in employment law to discuss your rights with you. We are prepared to discuss your employment situation with you. At Russo Law Offices, LLC, we are trial attorneys who advocate aggressively for our clients. If needed, we are prepared to go the distance to advocate on our client's behalf.
