As new employment laws are enacted and an increasing number of employment lawsuits, arbitrations and mediations are commenced, Meyer Suozzi’s Employment lawyers are up-to-date with regard to the latest case law developments and legislation, understanding that each uniquely affects the employee-employer relationship.
When negotiated resolution is not possible, Meyer Suozzi’s employment lawyers are regularly called upon to represent clients in federal and state court litigation and to advocate on their behalf in mediations and arbitration proceedings. Our goal is always to achieve cost-effective resolutions that meet our clients’ objectives and we vigorously pursue those objectives, working with clients to assess potential risks and legal exposures before disputes arise.
Recent examples include:
- Litigated a dispute between a group of management employees of a domestic business entity, which was purchased by a UK company, relating to the employees’ retirement benefits after the acquisition.
- Negotiated a favorable settlement of gender discrimination and retaliation claims involving a large university and a high level administrator after a successful jury trial in federal court.
- Litigated a dispute in federal court between an event catering hall and a former employee relating to the employee’s disability and Family Medical Leave Act claims which arose after the employee was injured on the job and terminated.
- Through private mediation, negotiated a settlement of bonus and breach of implied contract claims asserted against a major financial institution.
