We’ve provided explanations of labor laws and regulations to help workers understand what they should expect to happen in common situations.
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 23, 2012
New York employment and labor law attorney Robert Ottinger announced today that The Ottinger Firm, P.C., has launched a new website that provides important information about workers’ rights and legal options.
The user-friendly site covers employment termination, money disputes, discrimination on the job, overtime pay, general employment laws and a variety of other legal issues that affect workers in New York, northern New Jersey and across the U.S.
It can be found at OttingerLaw.com.
“We’ve provided explanations of labor laws and regulations to help workers understand what they should expect to happen in common situations,” said Ottinger, a noted New York labor law attorney whose firm features offices in New York and San Francisco.
“However, it’s the unusual situation that often causes employment disputes and different opinions about what the law requires,” he said. “In addition to viewing our website, workers should follow up by talking to an experienced employment lawyer for an explanation of how the law is interpreted and applied.”
The website goes into detail in a wide range of areas. For instance, the site’s Discrimination on the Job section includes pages about:
- Age discrimination
- Disability discrimination, including reasonable accommodation
- Gender discrimination
- Illness discrimination
- Pregnancy discrimination
- Race discrimination
- Religious discrimination
- Sexual harassment, including equal pay issues.
A separate section about employment laws includes explanations of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act corporate and criminal fraud accountability law and its protections for employees, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), employment-at-will regulations and laws and regulations pertinent to independent contractors.
“We’ve included a New York employment law blog where we can explain how employment law applies to current issues and events, and we’ll add to the site as time goes on,” Ottinger said.
“We encourage New York and northern New Jersey residents to get to know our website and The Ottinger Firm and to turn to us when they have general or specific questions about legal issues surrounding their employment situation.”
