Understanding and obtaining your rights in the workplace can be challenging and intimidating. With counsel on staff and human resources teams on site, the legal resources available to employers often exceed those available to the individual employee. Surovell Isaacs & Levy PLC understands the legal tactics used by small and large employers and is able to provide effective counsel to employees to help protect their rights.

Our firm is available to review your employment agreement, including assessing the terms of salary, commission, bonuses, non-solicitation covenants and non-compete agreements which may be included. If the terms of this agreement are unsuitable or inequitable, we will assist you in the negotiations, or even litigation, to amend the terms of the contract.

If you have been wrongfully terminated or victimized by unlawful business practices, our lawyers will work with you to protect your interests. In addition to representing employees who have suffered from breach of contract claims, wrongful discharge and various employment torts, we have extensive experience in discrimination claims.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1974 prohibits employers from discriminating against employees because of race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Despite the efforts of the federal and state government to outlaw these unfair practices, employment discrimination continues to persist in many workplaces. If you think you have been the victim of discrimination at work, you should contact one of our experienced attorneys immediately. Our firm can work with you to determine if there are grounds for a Title VII claim, assess damages and determine just compensation.

With increased federal and state employment regulations, it is becoming more challenging to manage the workplace. To avoid potentially costly mistakes, small and large companies should seek legal counsel when considering personnel policy. Our employment and business law attorneys offer preventative counseling to employers assisting with the preparation and review of employment policies and manuals to ensure compliance with state and federal law. We can also assist in the creation of non-compete agreements, wage and hour determination and termination proceedings.

As part of our employment preventative counseling, our experienced attorneys can design and lead training for your management on employment policy and provide you with required materials for your staff on anti-discrimination regulations.

If there are claims made against your company, Surovell Isaacs & Levy PLC is experienced in employment litigation, and our attorneys can represent you in Equal Employment Opportunity Hearings and throughout Department of Labor investigations. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
