Employment Law for Individuals
Representing employees in workplace disputes has been a specialty at Cohen Kinne Valicenti & Cook since its inception.
We believe that all employees are entitled to receive wages they have earned, including overtime, commissions, and bonuses. We also believe that all types of workplace discrimination and harassment, whether based upon gender, race, national origin, age, disability, sex, or sexual orientation are unacceptable, no matter the type or size of the business. Our employment lawyers are accessible, approachable, compassionate, and caring, and will not only represent your legal interests, but will also be a part of your support system during this challenging time. For summaries on recent changes to employment law, view our blog: CKVC Works.
