Labor and Employment Law for Employees

Uniondale, White Plains, New York
Employee Rights Lawyers

At the law firm of Westermann Sheehy Keenan Samaan & Aydelott, LLP, in Uniondale and White Plains, New York, we advise and represent individuals who have legitimate claims against a current or former employer for wrongful discharge, age, race, national origin, disability, or sex discrimination, sexual harassment, wage and hour violations, or other actions which violate an employee's rights. We don't take employee rights cases lightly. We carefully investigate claims to ensure that an employee has a serious and legitimate grievance against an employer who has broken the law.

The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and other federal and state laws are in place to ensure that employees are not taken advantage of in the workplace, relative to wage and hour laws, discrimination, and harassment. The laws are complex and it is sometimes difficult to determine whether you may have a legitimate claim against an employer who has violated your rights.

Our experience in labor and employment law is your best asset

If you believe that you have been discriminated against, sexually harassed, wrongfully terminated, or made to work overtime without proper pay, contact our offices to schedule a consultation with an employment law attorney.

We understand what employers are required to do to comply with the laws, and we know when there is a clear violation. When we meet to discuss your claim, we will explain the laws and give you an honest assessment of whether you have a legitimate claim for money damages. Our experience in the area of employment business law is your best asset during the process.
