Westchester, New York Employment Law Attorneys On Your Side
Elefante & Persanis has represented employees and employers in the area of employment law in mediation, negotiation and litigation. Both parties have rights under the laws of New York State and the United States, and the lawyers know these laws well.
Settlements, negotiations and litigation
The firm's strengths in employment law are unparalleled - a great deal of experience and a track record of success.
Attorney Matthew Persanis worked for a labor union during law school, handling Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaints, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) grievances, arbitrations and negotiations for the 8,000-member Service Employees International Union. He is skilled in dispute resolution, he knows what issues are most important to employees, labor unions and management alike, and he knows how to get all sides talking so that agreements can be reached in the most expeditious and affordable way.
Attorney Barbara Curtis is an aggressive, highly respected litigator in the employment law and labor law arenas. When agreements between parties in a dispute are not possible, she gives the firm's clients an edge in court.
Championing the rights of employees
Elefante & Persanis attorneys have a thorough working knowledge of EEOC guidelines, New York Civil Rights Commission requirements, the Fair Labor Standards Act and the National Labor Relations Board.
They represent individuals in the construction, housing and service industries at every employment level who have been aggrieved by illegal employment practices: wrongfully discharged, denied promotion, or wrongfully refused employment, and employees who have been victims of a hostile or discriminatory work environment. The firm also negotiates and drafts employment contracts and severance agreements.
Whether in litigation or negotiation, they work very hard to achieve the best possible results for their clients.
Defending employers against claims
Elefante & Persanis is itself a business and its attorneys are fully aware of the needs of employers: responsive, results-oriented and cost-effective legal guidance and a knowledge of what the other side considers to be key issues. The firm strives to thoroughly understand your industry, then work diligently to deliver the best legal solutions to your issue.
In one sexual harassment case, for example, an employer was being sued for $25 million. Elefante & Persanis acted as defense attorneys, studied the circumstances carefully, and got the case dismissed. This is one of many cases in which the firm have acted effectively in the best interests of their client.
