New York Employment Attorneys

The Harman Firm understands that employment disputes can have an overwhelming, even devastating impact on people’s personal and professional lives. When these disputes arise, we aim to build bridges between employees and employers. If an amicable resolution is not possible, we guide our clients through the financial and emotional challenges of a legal battle with zealous advocacy, legal expertise, and sound advice. Our New York employment discrimination lawyers offer the time, talent, and support needed when confronting current or former employers, employees, coworkers, and colleagues.

Few are prepared for the trauma caused by sexual harassment or discrimination based on protected characteristics such as race, age, gender, pregnancy, disability, or sexual orientation. The Harman Firm encourages victims of discrimination to address that trauma, come forward with their claims, and consult with an attorney regarding their legal options. We are prepared to analyze and resolve the challenges caused by illegal employment practices.

The Harman Firm also provides counsel to small- and medium-sized businesses on various matters, such as:

  • Preparing employee manuals and handbooks;
  • Advising on employee and independent contractor matters;
  • Drafting hiring agreements and separation agreements;
  • Reviewing vendor contracts and master service agreements; and
  • Handling commercial litigation.

We pride ourselves on keeping abreast of changes in the field of employment law, and we work to inform the public about the ever-changing nature of employment matters. Please read our BLOG for a discussion of current developments in employment law or follow us on Twitter @TheHarmanFirm.
