The employee-employer relationship in the New York is governed by hard-fought rules and regulations put in place at the federal and state levels. Despite laws such as the New York State Human Rights Law, and federal laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Fair Labor Standard Act, Occupational Safety and Health Act, the False Claims Act and others, many workers remain at a disadvantage when disputes arise at work.

Employees who have been treated improperly by an employer may have the law on their side, but it is not likely – nor should it be expected – that they have enough knowledge of employment law to properly defend themselves.
