Employment Law

There can be a multitude of issues in the employment context, concerning hiring, firing, wage and hour, discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims and actions.

The attorneys at Burden & Hansen, LLC are knowledgeable with the federal, state and local laws that govern employment in New York State. Our attorneys aggressively defend both public and private employers against claims that arise under regulations related to these laws.

We are experienced in handling claims and lawsuits brought under Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and Section 1983 cases. We represent employers with respect to claims made before both the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and New York State Division of Human Rights.

Our attorneys routinely handle allegations of discrimination, including those based on age, disability, gender, gender identity, religion, pregnancy and other familial status protections. The firm also defends employers in sexual harassment, wage and hour, retaliation claims and employee classification matters. We follow developments and trends to ensure we are on the cutting edge of this ever-changing legal landscape, and our attorneys have been called upon to present and publish on employment-related topics.

Through decades of legal practice, the attorneys at Burden & Hansen, LLC have honed the process of assessing a claim, investigating it, and crafting a solid defense strategy. While our goal is to resolve matters as efficiently as possible, and we are adept at developing creative solutions to claims resolution, we are also seasoned trial attorneys who present an aggressive courtroom defense.
