Employment Law Litigation
New York and California Employment Law Attorneys
A variety of federal and state laws govern the employer-employee relationship. Heerde Blum LLP helps businesses and executives with their employment law and employment contract issues.
Executive Employment Contract Litigation
It is common for businesses and top-level executives or key employees with access to confidential information to have in place contracts that outline the terms of employment. Some of the most common employment contracts cover:
· Compensation packages detailing salary, bonuses and stock options as well as the events and company targets that may trigger the right of an employee to additional compensation.
· Job duties that outline the rights and responsibilities of the employee and the business including confidentiality agreements.
When an employment contract is breached, it may be necessary for the employer or the employee to take legal action. Heerde Blum LLP represents executives and key employees who have not received compensation they are owed. The firm also represents businesses that have had executives violate employment contracts or attempt to provide trade secrets or confidential information to competitors.
Employment Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Litigation
Federal, state and sometimes even local laws explicitly prohibit discrimination in the workplace. Several types of discrimination in employment are barred by law including discrimination based on race, sex, age and disability.
At Heerde Blum LLP, we assist individuals who have been the victims of discrimination. The firm believes that when it comes to protecting clients’ rights, aggressive lawyers, who doggedly pursue their clients’ interests, obtain the best results.
