A Fresh Approach to Employment Law

The New York City employment law firm of Maduegbuna Cooper LLP represents employees and employers in discrimination cases.

Our lawyers have successfully resolved a number of high-profile employment discrimination cases and we are available to help you.

What is Employment Discrimination?

You should be judged by the quality of your work, not by traits that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Employers are prohibited from discriminating against you on the basis of:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Genetic information
  • National origin
  • Pregnancy
  • Race or color
  • Religion
  • Sex
  • Sexual Harassment

We empower you to take action against employers who engaged in such discriminatory practices involving hiring, promotion, pay, assignments, discharge or harassment based on your membership in a prescribed class.

Our lawyers demand that employers comply with these important laws.

Employment Counselling and Support for Businesses and Individuals

If an employee filed a claim against your company for discrimination or sexual harassment, we help you investigate the facts of the case and build a strong defense against untruthful allegations.

The Firm also provides effective employment law counseling for companies and individuals, including conducting internal investigations and advising clients on workplace policies and practices, employee handbooks, employment contracts, severance agreements, executive compensation, and other employment-related agreements.

We advise business on such crucial issues as:

  • Instituting clear corporate policies
  • Revising personnel manuals
  • Drafting waiver and release forms
  • Determining the adequacy of your severance packages
  • Developing procedures for reprimanding and terminating employees
  • Implementing a well-organized record-keeping system
