Oxfeld Cohen PC specializes in all aspects of labor law, employment law, employment contracts and
workers compensation law. Our attorneys collectively have over 100 years of experience representing labor unions, employees in discrimination/wrongful termination lawsuits and injured workers.
We represent labor unions in a wide variety of industries, including healthcare, education, trucking and retail sales. We represent union employees in the private sector as well as employees working for governmental entities, including teachers, police and fire, and other public union employees. We practice regularly before the National Labor Relations Board and the Public Employment Relations Commission on behalf of the clients we represent. We have successfully handled civil service matters on behalf of government employees who were disciplined or terminated or who were denied promotion or pensions.
Our attorneys also handle matters on behalf of individual employees who have been treated in an illegal or discriminatory manner by their employers. It is illegal in New Jersey to treat an employee differently, to harass or fire an employee because of that employee’s race, religion, gender, age, national origin, ethnicity or sexual orientation or whistle blower status. We are not afraid to “take on” big corporations as we have done on many occasions in the past and regularly represent employees who have “blown the whistle” on illegal activity engaged in by their employers. We vigorously litigate these claims on behalf of our clients. We have successfully handled civil service matters on behalf of government employees who were disciplined or terminated or who were denied promotions.
Our workers’ compensation practice also covers employees employed in a wide variety of industries, including public and private employment. Employees injured on the job are usually entitled to medical treatment paid for by their employers, but many employees do not realize that they may also be entitled to additional payments beyond salary continuation and medical benefits. Our firm has extensive experience handling these claims and fighting for the benefits to which you as an employee may be entitled. It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee who has filed a workers compensation claim.
