Our Legal Services

Mirza Law handles a wide array of employment-related legal matters, including the following:

  • Employment Discrimination: When an employer discriminates against his or her employees on the basis of any protected class (such as race, color, gender, or age), that employee has a right to file a discrimination claim against his or her employer. That being said, discrimination claims can be challenging to win, which is why it is so critical that the employee first hires an experienced New York City employment lawyer who can effectively handle and prove the claim.
  • Employment Agreements: Many jobs in NYS require prospective employees, and sometimes even current employees, to sign certain employment agreements. While these agreements should be fair to both parties, this is not always the case. This is why it is always best to speak with a knowledgeable attorney before going ahead and signing any such documentation.
  • Hostile Work Environment: When someone is made to feel unwanted, threatened, or belittled on a daily basis, it can take a very serious toll. Not only is this unacceptable in the workplace, but it is also oftentimes illegal. If you spoke with your HR department or your employer and the behavior within your company has not changed, you should reach out to Mr. Mirza as soon as you can.
  • Worker Retaliation: When a worker is discriminated against or reports an act of discrimination that he or she witnessed, there is a chance that the worker’s employer will retaliate. This can include docking pay, a demotion, or wrongful termination. If you were wrongfully retaliated against, our firm is ready to help.
  • Sexual Harassment: Sexual harassment in the workplace is still more prevalent than any of us would care to imagine. Unfortunately, countless people are affected by such harassment. Our job as an employment law firm is to permanently eliminate such despicable behavior from the workplace environment, one case at a time.
  • Whistleblower Protection: If you spoke out about injustice in the workplace and were retaliated against in some way, you can turn to Mirza Law to fight for you.
  • Wrongful Termination: When someone’s position at a place of employment is wrongfully terminated, it can turn their life upside down. They now are without a paycheck–a paycheck they once needed to support themselves and their family. If you’ve been wrongfully terminated from your job, either as a form of retaliation or discrimination, you can depend on our New York City employment lawyer to fight for you.
  • Wage & Hour Law: Were you denied the pay to which you were entitled? If your right to minimum wage or overtime pay was violated, our legal team is here to help. Speak with a competent employment lawyer from Mirza Law for assistance.
  • FMLA: The Family Medical Leave Act, also known as FMLA, is designed to provide certain employees with job-protected and unpaid leave, should they or a loved one have a qualifying medical or family need. Essentially, the Act allows individuals to care for themselves or a loved one for a certain period of time without having to worry that their job or position will be replaced when the time has come for the employee to return to work. If your rights under the FMLA have been violated, our firm is ready to help.
  • Employer Defense: As a business owner, your primary objective is to ensure the success of your business. That said, because most businesses, especially small ones, often don’t have HR departments and other compliance procedures in place, they sometimes find themselves facing various employment-related disputes with their employees. Mirza Law can help ensure your business is compliant with all state and federal laws and that all employment/contract agreements are valid, enforceable, and can protect your business. We also have significant experience assisting employers facing accusations of discrimination, retaliation, and other types of wrongdoing. The bottom line is that running a business isn’t easy, but Mirza Law is here to help things move along as smoothly as possible.

Filing a Claim

If you are looking to file a claim against your employer, such as a discrimination claim, it is critical that you do everything in your power to document the incident(s) of discrimination. The same is true if you are looking to prove that your employer violated your rights as an employee in any other way.

Keep in mind that there is a time limit for filing a claim against your employer. For example, if you are looking to file a discrimination claim against your employer, you will either have to file your claim with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or with the NYC Commission on Human Rights. Our competent New York City employment lawyer is ready to assist you today.
