Employment Laws

Employment Law (Employees)

Employers and employees have certain rights and obligations in the work place. When these rights or obligations are ignored, the party harmed can sue to recover financial damages. The Santiago Law Firm is ready to hear your story and step in on your behalf.

At the Santiago Law Firm, we take employment matters very seriously. We have experience in these employment law matters:

  • Employment discrimination based on age, race, sex, color, religion, national origin, and sexual orientation
  • Age discrimination and claims under the Age in Employment Discrimination Act (ADEA)
  • Disability discrimination and claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act
  • Sexual harassment, gender discrimination and pregnancy discrimination
  • Retaliation and retaliatory discharge
  • Wrongful termination

Getting and Keeping Your Job

Having a diverse workforce makes us all stronger as it fosters creative thinking and innovation. Title VII states that it is against the law for an employer to refuse to hire or dismiss an employee based on that persons race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. It is also unlawful to segregate employees based on these factors, or offer lower compensation or benefits to employees for these reasons.  If you are a member of any protected classes, and are having difficulty with obtaining or keeping your employment because if it, The Santiago Law Firm has the Long Island & NY Title Management Attorneys that are ready to stand up for you.

We also routinely handle these labor law issues:

  • Wage and hour litigation, failure to pay overtime wages and other violations of wage and hour laws
  • Non-compete agreements
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
