Connecticut and New York Employment Law Attorneys

Representing Employees

At Rogers & Tartaro, LLP, our attorneys provide employment law counseling for employees and employers. We help prevent discrimination and harassment in the workplace by defending the rights of employees. We help employers develop employee handbooks and better practices to foster a better business environment.

Why Hire an Attorney?

Employees are guaranteed certain rights and protections within the workplace. Federal and state laws prohibit discrimination, harassment, unfair labor practices, safety violations, and certain kinds of actions on the part of employers. When employers violate federal and state law, they're liable for their actions in a court of law.

At Rogers & Tartaro, LLP, our lawyers assert and protect the rights of Connecticut and New York employees in employment contract negotiations, reviewing and negotiating severance agreements, discrimination and harassment lawsuits. We litigate cases in state, federal and appellate courts of New York and Connecticut. Our attorneys will evaluate your case and advise you on the merits of your case. Our staff will work with private investigators, forensic computer experts, handwriting analysts, and other professionals in recovering and analyzing evidence in your case. When necessary, we will involve the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Connecticut Commission on Human Rights and Opportunities (CHRO), representing your interests in any discussions or interactions with them regarding your case.

We have handled litigation in New York and Connecticut state, federal and appellate courts and have represented clients before the EEOC, CHRO and local administrative agencies on claims such as:

  • Sexual harassment
  • Discrimination based on gender, age, disability, national origin, race or religion
  • Defamation cases
  • Covenants not to Compete
  • Non-disclosure/Confidentiality Agreements
  • Wage and hour disputes
  • Wrongful termination

  • Smoking and smoke free environment issues

If you have been the target of discrimination, harassment or unfair labor practices, Rogers & Tartaro, LLP will evaluate your case and determine how best to proceed in demanding justice and compensation for the harm done to you.

Do I Have a Case?

Companies that allow discrimination, harassment or safety violations in the workplace often exhibit a pattern of behavior that is difficult to hide. Our attorneys subpoena human resources records, look at hiring, firing and promoting practices, gather e-mails and memos, and interview management and HR personnel. Even if a paper trail doesn't exist, inconsistencies between stated company policies and goals and actual results expose discriminatory and harassing behavior. As your attorneys, we thoroughly investigate every aspect of a company's actions related to your case.

Our attorneys believe in strict compliance with all ethical rules. Careful conflict checking procedures ensure that our clients receive independent representation that is compassionate, responsive and effective.
