Employment disputes are as common as family conflicts and can involve some of the same perceptions or actions. We dedicate a lot of time pursuing success in both places, so why not have them be as pleasant as possible, under the circumstances? Why does work have to be an unpleasant, four-letter word? How do we go from that first day excitement to not wanting to get out of bed? These are some of the questions we might help you find answers to, as we work together toward resolution of your workplace dispute.
Employment conflicts we have helped our clients resolve include:
- Audits (Department of Labor, workers’ compensation insurance carriers, New York Compensation Insurance Rating Board)
- Breaches of contract
- Constructive termination claims
- Discrimination and harassment claims (disability, gender, gender identity, race)
- Embezzlement and employee theft
- Hostile work environments
- Implicit biases, perceptions, and conflicting world views
- Unemployment insurance claims
- Unfair work distribution
- Uninsured workers’ compensation claims
- Workers’ compensation
- Worker misclassification
- Wrongful termination
Nance was also the plaintiff in a case against a former employer and experienced several of these conflicts as a litigant. This, and her experience as a business owner, former human resources supervisor, litigator, and mediator give her a unique understanding of the underlying personal needs of the parties.
We encourage you to schedule a Consultation to discuss ways you might be able to resolve your dispute out of court and more completely, through a customized process (where available).
