Resources on Employee Rights and Labor Laws from NYC Employment Attorneys

Workers have protections under federal, state, and local employment and discrimination laws. If your rights have been violated, you may be entitled to back pay, punitive damages, penalties, and other financial compensation. Attorney Charles Joseph, with over twenty years of experience in employment law, can help protect your rights. Charles Joseph offers free consultations to discuss your case, and he works on contingency, which means he only gets paid when he recovers money for you.

Learn more about your rights, and take steps to protect yourself if your rights have been violated. Working: Now and Then provides information on wrongful termination, wage theft, discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environments, and workers’ rights.

Charles Joseph and his firm have recovered over $120 million for clients. Federal judges have praised the firm as ‘best in breed’ and for the ‘doggedness with which they pursued relief for their clients.’ Contact New York employment lawyer Charles Joseph for a free consultation and find out if you have a claim today.
