On occasions when an employer or members of a company’s management team engages in acts and practices that discriminate against their employees, harass them, or otherwise violate the various state and federal employment statutes, it is important that individuals have a resource to turn to to understand their rights.

When an employer takes or allows illegal actions towards its employees, it can have serious detrimental financial and emotional effects on the employee. Dworken & Bernstein’s experienced attorneys can help you understand your rights as an employee under these laws and can advise you as to whether or not you have any actionable case, particularly in situations where you have been terminated, are not receiving the benefits you believe you are entitled to or are otherwise being discriminated against or harassed. Our attorneys can work for you to prosecute your claims against the employer and, where necessary, litigate those claims in the State or Federal courts.
Additionally, our attorneys are experienced with dealing with various contractual employment issues such as employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, non-competition agreements, and non-solicitation agreements. We can help you understand these agreements, advise you on your availability rights and restrictions under the agreements, and help you minimize the impact of or dispute the validity of these agreements.
