Employment Law

Employment law concerns the regulations that govern and protect the rights of employers and workers. At Tand & Associates we can successfully represent either party in the workplace. On the one hand, we protect workers from discrimination and retaliation; on the other, we help employers keep apprised of, and compliant with, laws concerning their policies in terms of hiring, promoting, paying, providing leave, disciplining, and terminating employees.

Areas of employment law we assist our clients with include:

  • Establishment of company policies
  • Employment agreements
  • Disputes between employees and employers
  • Sexual harassment claims and lawsuits
  • The Family Medical Leave Act
  • Wage and Hour Laws
  • Workers’ Compensation

Whether you are the head of a company or an employee, our up-to-date knowledge of federal and state law, as well as our skill in negotiation and litigation, will serve you well.

General Litigation

We can also provide you with legal assistance if you become entangled in a business dispute. Well-versed in all types of civil litigation, we will work hard to win your case whether you are the plaintiff or defendant and whether you are acting as an individual, partner, shareholder or corporation. Our attorneys are fully prepared to deal with all types of civil litigation, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Fraud
  • RICO
  • Trade secrets
  • Non-compete covenants
  • Securities matters
  • Liquor license violations
  • Injunctions
  • Real estate and construction matters
  • Premises liability   

Our civil litigation attorneys are experienced negotiators and try to settle cases as expeditiously as possible through mediation or arbitration. If necessary, however, they are powerful litigators in state, federal or appellate courts.

Civil Rights Litigation

At Tand & Associates, we are dedicated to protecting the civil rights of our clients, rights that, unfortunately, are all too often threatened. Whether you have been treated unfairly in terms of hiring, promotion, discipline, or termination on the job, or experienced discrimination anywhere because of your race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or religion, our attorneys have the know-how to defend you.

The Constitution and a number of federal laws protect your right to fair and equal treatment, but there are times when even those tasked with enforcing such regulations behave abusively. If you have been harassed or threatened by police, or have experienced police brutality due to prejudice or discrimination, our lawyers will step in with the knowledge and power to defend you.

You are specifically protected by the following civil rights laws, laws our attorneys are well-versed in: 

  • The Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
  • The Pregnancy Discrimination Act
  • The Equal Pay Act of 1963
  • The Age Discrimination and Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA)
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990

You are also protected by law from sexual harassment which includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and verbal or physical attention of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment needn’t be directed at you personally. Offensive comments about

women, men, gays, lesbians, transgender individuals -- all are against the law. Not every sexual statement or dirty joke rises to the level of sexual harassment, but a hostile work environment with pervasive taunting or derision is illegal.

Animal Law

Tand & Associates is one of the few firms in New York State with a specialty in animal law, a branch of law that involves the protection of non-human animals. Our clients in this field are private individuals as well as activist groups and conservation organizations. We have experience with incidents of wrongful death, veterinary malpractice, products liability litigation, and issues involving drafting estates and trusts to care for pets after their owner’s death.

Animal law, a relatively new field, concerns itself with all animals, including:

  • Companion animals (pets)
  • Service animals
  • Wildlife
  • Animals used in entertainment
  • Animals bred for food or research

In many ways, animal law runs a parallel course to environmental law, facing some of the same challenges and seeking similar changes in the human perspective on the natural world.
