Sassoon Cymrot Law, LLC understands that the employment relationship can be complex and challenging for both employers and employees. Our mission is to provide comprehensive legal guidance and representation to ensure that our clients are well-informed and protected in all employment matters.
Our attorneys help business clients implement employment policies, handbooks and practices to comply with federal and state regulatory requirements, including wage payments, benefit compliance and worker classification. Preventive educational training and procedural audit programs assure regulatory compliance with evolving employment/labor laws, and help our business clients compete and prosper. To compete in the marketplace, our business clients must attract and retain key employees and senior management and protect trade secrets. Our lawyers prepare employment relationship and severance agreements as well as confidentiality and non-compete agreements for key employees and management.
Regulatory oversight and complaints filed by employees for discrimination in the workplace can subject business clients to costly fines and damage awards imposed by governmental authorities or court action. When our business clients confront claims of discrimination or other wrongful behavior, our employment and litigation lawyers respond aggressively and represent our clients at state and federal administrative boards and courts. We also provide layoff and termination assistance and enforce employment, confidentiality and non-solicitation agreements through litigation, mediation and arbitration.
For employees, we provide advice and representation in cases of discrimination and harassment based on race, gender, age, disability, and other protected classes. We also assist clients with claims related to minimum wage, overtime, and other wage and hour issues. On behalf of the employee our attorneys will review and negotiate employment contracts and severance agreements, ensuring that our clients’ rights and interests are protected.
