Mr. Chase represents employers and employees in virtually all areas of employment law. He represents clients regarding employment discrimination issues, competition law, wage & hour, compensation disputes, employment agreements, severance agreements, etc. Representing clients on employment matters in New York City is particularly challenging because New York City has many local laws that are extremely pro-employee and which are frequently amended. Mr. Chase advises employers on best practices to avoid and minimize common employment disputes. He has litigated numerous employment matters in state court, federal court, arbitration forums, the EEOC, and state civil rights agencies. His background litigating contentious employment disputes gives him a very practical perspective on best practices for employers to follow to minimize their exposure to employment litigation.
“Today’s employment environment is a legal minefield for employers. The first time that a company is sued usually will involve an employment dispute.” ~ Thomas Chase
