NYC Employee Relations & Workplace Management Lawyers
Helping Employers in New York & Connecticut Minimize Workplace Rights Violations
Running a business is tough in today’s regulatory environment. The employer/employee relationship has strict rules that apply to even the smallest company. Recently, the enactment of complex new laws and the issuance of far-reaching court decisions has increased litigation in the courts.
Additionally, oversight and enforcement is becoming more commonplace, making it that much more critical that the legal advice and guidance you receive be prompt and accurate. At The Boyd Law Group, PLLC, we take a preventative approach in counseling clients on terminations, accommodations, discrimination, wage and hour laws, and other compliance items to minimize conflicts in the workplace that may lead to costly litigation.
