Berkman Henoch provides vigorous defense in the area of employment law, supporting our clients’ interests and goals. Our attorneys work with clients to evaluate claims of discrimination, harassment and/or retaliation brought against the employer. These can include claims of age, race, sex, gender, national origin, religion, disability and pregnancy discrimination. We are well-versed in federal, state, and local employment laws.

Our firm works with management, small businesses, physician practices, partnerships and municipal clients in federal and state courts and agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and New York State Division of Human Rights.

We have handled administrative charges before the New York State Division of Human Rights and represented our clients at hearings before an administrative law judge.  Our team of experienced trial attorneys also provide effective trial advocacy when needed, and have gained a reputation for being strong, knowledgeable and effective trial counsel.
