Employment Law Representation for Individuals

The Boyd Law Group, PLLC's New York employment lawyers represent individuals dealing with workplace discrimination, severance and contract negotiations and litigation involving employment, labor, commercial and education law. In these matters, individuals often find themselves at a great disadvantage when they seek to protect their legal rights against large companies with full legal teams.

We understand that workplace negotiations can be delicate and that disputes and litigation against current or former employers are difficult. We can help to resolve disputes early when this is practicable and when a client desires a quick resolution. When litigation, trial and even media attention is necessary and in the best interest of the client, our attorneys will aggressively litigate cases and we enjoy this work as well. Our goal is to understand individual client needs and to achieve the best possible outcome by focusing on those needs.

The Boyd Law Group, PLLC also has an office located in Stamford, Connecticut. If you would like to consult with a Connecticut employment lawyer, please call us today at (800) 617-4254.

Workplace Discrimination

The Boyd Law Group, PLLC handles discrimination and harassment claims in the federal and state courts, and in all of the administrative agencies which enforce laws against discrimination. BLG strongly believes in the importance of a workplace free from discrimination, and we will fight to protect you and your rights. Our workplace discrimination attorneys represent individuals with claims against their employers in many areas, including, but not limited to age discrimination, disability discrimination, equal pay compensation discrimination, hostile work environment, national origin discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, race and color discrimination, religious discrimination and sex/gender-based discrimination.

Whistleblower Rights and Retaliation

With offices in Connecticut and New York, BLG's employment lawyers represent and advise whistleblowers and victims of retaliation in the workplace. There are a growing number of federal and local laws that protect employees who report unlawful conduct in the workplace, and BLG can protect you if you are aware of something that you need to report, and make sure that your employer does not unlawfully retaliate. If your employer already has retaliated, we can fight to protect your rights and secure financial compensation for your damages.

Sexual Harassment

BLG’s employment lawyers represent victims of sexual harassment, sexual assault and abuse in their workplace regardless of their sexual identity. Sexual harassment is a political lightning rod in the current media environment, and we can help you value your claims, protect you and fight for the fair treatment and compensation you deserve. If you want your claim handled with prudence we can do that, if you wish to openly voice and prosecute your grievances we can help in that manner as well.

Executive Employment Agreement & Package Review

BLG can review your executive employment package to make sure that it is fair and that you are getting the best market-valued deal. When drafting and negotiating compensation and benefit provisions for an executive employment agreement a number of issues should be considered including non-compete and confidentiality obligations and equity/bonus vesting schedules. Our attorneys also have extensive experience evaluating and negotiating severance agreements on behalf of employees and executives. When your employment ends your employer often will pay severance including continued medical coverage in exchange for your waiver and release of potential claims. You should consider the value of the claims you are waiving and any non-compete/solicit options that might impact your next job. Let us help.

"Patrick, Steve and the team at Boyd Law Group not only achieved a resolution that was more than fair...they were far more responsive and upfront than i would have initially expected given past experiences. They worked with me financially, and were very fair with managing my expectations. Moreover, given the group's experience, they are fair but strong negotiators, great listeners and put me, as a client, at ease. I won't think twice about approaching Boyd Law Group in the future...and recommending them to family/friends and coworkers in need of advice." Victor R.
★★★★★
