In New York, employment is “at will.” That means that an employer can terminate you for any reason they choose, or for no reason, unless the discharge violates anti-discrimination laws. The at-will arrangement also can be affected if you have an employment contract or agreement that specifies the circumstances under which you may be let go. As an employer, you know that there are many employment-related laws – both state and federal – with which you must comply. Whether you’re an individual who feels you’ve been wrongly discharged from your job or an employer seeking advice on employee-termination decisions, the veteran employment lawyers at The Law Offices of Newman & Drukman can provide you with the guidance you need.
