Summary

Employment law is all Urba Law PLLC does.

Employment contracts, restrictive covenants, trade secrets and duties of loyalty are serious business in New York. So are the protections available to employees who were paid a salary when they should have been hourly plus overtime. These employees can recover up to 6 years of unpaid wages. New York State's and the City's laws are even more protective of the disabled and the discriminated.

Jonas has experience in many different industries.

He uses his MBA and certified fraud examiner training to help employees as well as small employers.

Many years ago I represented a radio personality with an employment law dispute. Years after I successfully resolved that matter for the radio personality I got a call from the station manager who was earning close to a quarter million salary. The manger recalled the way I handled the radio personality's employment matter and wanted me to to the same for the manager.

There's no better advertisement than an employer who retains an employee's lawyer having experienced how the lawyer handled the former's legal matter. The manager said I "took no prisoners" and wanted me to the same for the manager.

Contracts including releases and general waivers go hand in hand with this work. It's all we do.
