Labor and Employment

Dowling Law understands the constant pressure to comply with the numerous and ever-changing federal and state laws and regulations affecting not-for-profit and for-profit organizations.

We provide clients with vital legal advice concerning today’s common workplace issues, such as hostile work environments (e.g., discrimination, harassment, and retaliation complaints), employee leaves, reasonable accommodation requests, wage and hour compliance, and terminations of employment.

Dowling Law also assists both union and non-union employers in a variety of labor matters:​

  • unionization and union representation elections;

  • collective bargaining;

  • grievance and arbitrations; and

  • unfair labor practice charges.

Proactive Employment Law Advice

We are committed to providing our clients with strategic, timely advice to help our clients comply with federal, state, and local employment law.

We serve as a resource for businesses and not-for-profit organizations.

Dowling Law prepares and reviews:

  • employee handbooks,

  • workplace policies, procedures, and processes;

  • executive agreements; 

  • separation agreements.

Administrative and Litigation Representation.

Despite the very best practices, claims do happen.  Our attorneys defend employers in federal and state litigation, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the N.Y.S. Division of Human Rights (SDHR), the U.S. and N.Y.S. Departments of Labor, the National Labor Relations Board, and the N.Y.S. Workers' Compensation Board.

We work efficiently and effectively to defend our clients in EEO discrimination, harassment and retaliation claims, wage/hour, unfair labor practice charges and other employment-related matters.
