Welcome to Joseph & Kirschenbaum LLP

Joseph & Kirschenbaum is a New York City employment rights law firm dedicated to representing employees who are victims of discrimination, wage and hour violations, harassment or other illegal and unfair treatment in the workplace. We handle individual claims and class actions brought by employees throughout the United States. Our employment rights lawyers will fight for the rights of workers whose wages, salaries and tips were illegally underpaid. Our worker's rights attorneys fight for those who have been retaliated against for reporting illegal practices, or victims of on-the-job discrimination on the basis of race, gender, age, disability or other personal characteristics protected by law.

Since our firm was formed in 1999, we have sued employers from large corporations to small businesses, on behalf of part-time hourly workers to executives.

We are committed to helping our clients understand their claims and the employment litigation process, many of whom have never hired a lawyer for discrimination or unpaid overtime wage claims. We draw on extensive legal experience to give our clients a thorough and realistic assessment of their cases, as well as sharp, assertive representation in court. We are easily accessible to our clients and pride ourselves on treating them with respect and compassion during what is often a stressful time.

Every employee has rights, including the rights to be paid fairly and work in an environment free of prejudice. If you believe you have been discriminated against at work, retaliated against by your employer or were denied wages, tips or salary that you are legally owed, the Manhattan lawyers at Joseph & Kirschenbaum can help. To learn more about your rights and your options, please contact us as soon as possible.
