Employment Law


Andrea Cook & Associates has a vast wealth of experience in employment related matters. Employment law includes advocacy on behalf of employees impacted by discrimination in the workplace, including, race, gender (sexual harassment), age and other protected classes recognized under state and federal law. In some cases, employees are harassed for months or even years before being wrongfully terminated in retaliation for complaining about the harassment.


Some employees may have contractual claims with employers in which the agreed upon terms and conditions are not adhered to by one of both of the parties. Andrea Cook & Associates has reviewed hundreds of such contracts and can advise the parties as to whether or not a breach has occurred. Many times employers will prepare severance agreements in an effort to resolve a possible dispute or in response to layoffs or cutbacks. Andrea Cook & Associates has reviewed and advised thousands of employees regarding the propriety of layoffs and severance agreements as well as advising employees regarding wage and hour issues under both state and federal law, labor law (collective bargaining agreements) issues, including representation of union workers in both the public and private sector.
