Richard V. Rappaport and Associates is a New York law firm with a concentration in labor and employment law. For more than 30 years, we have been successfully resolving cases involving a wide range of issues related to labor/management relations, employment discrimination, sexual harassment, severance, civil service, whistleblower actions, wages and overtime disputes, unemployment issues and many other related legal matters.
Retaliation and Employment Discrimination
Retaliation can also be an independent cause for legal action, but sometimes it occurs as a result of legal action. We have extensive experience aggressively protecting the rights of our clients and obtaining compensation in retaliation cases.
Long Island Lawyer Richard V. Rappaport Represents Clients Throughout New York in a Wide Range of Employment and Labor Law Cases
Whenever possible, we use negotiation, mediation, arbitration and collective bargaining techniques to resolve our clients' cases, because these methods can avoid the delays and expenses that may be associated with litigation. In some cases, a trial is the only option.
The founder of our firm, Richard V. Rappaport, has extensive experience litigating complex cases in Federal and State courts as well as administrative agencies such as the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the New York State Division of Human Rights and the National Labor Relations Board. He has successfully argued before the New York State Court of Appeals, and the decision in one of his cases resulted in a change to the state law, still in effect today.
We handle cases that involve employment laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and as amended, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and the New York State Executive Law (Human Rights Law).
