Legal Services Offered by Our On-Demand New York Employment Attorneys

Our experienced New York employment attorneys & lawyers can help guide you on how to proceed with various employee decisions such as reviewing employee documents such as contracts, agreements, policies, and handbooks, along with difficult decisions such as firing, lawsuits, claims, and complaints.

Although not every single employment contract will require legal assistance, many employment lawyers would recommend avoiding unilateral employment contracts that strongly benefit one side over the other. These types of employee contracts rarely hold up in court, yet having the funds needed to combat an issue in court can limit the employee’s options.

A confidentiality agreement and a non-compete agreement are common forms of employee contracts that one of our New York employment attorneys can help customize for your business. If your business needs to fire an employee, proper measures should be taken from a business legal standpoint to ensure proper communication and a smooth transition of dismissing that employee. In any case, we suggest you connect with our employment attorneys to discuss your options.

Preferred Stock

  • 4 min read

Preferred stock is a special class of equity that adds debt features. As with common stock, shareholders receive a share of ownership in the company. Preferred stock also receives special rights, including guaranteed dividends that must be paid out before dividends to common shareholders, priority in the event of a liquidation, is listed separately from common stock, and trades at a different price than common stock.

Why Is Preferred Stock Important?

Preferred stock gives you a financing alternative to taking on debt. You generally maintain greater control over your company than if you issue new common shares.

You can also remain flexible for future financing rounds by keeping debt off of your balance sheet and retaining a call option. The call option allows you to reduce your outstanding equity and offer a greate

Work for Hire: What Is It?

Work for hire is any created work that can be copyrighted like songs, stories, essays, sculptures, paintings, graphic designs, or computer programs. In the U.S., work for hire — shorthand for the term "a work made for hire" — applies if the created piece is part of a person's job or made by an independent contractor.

Instead of the creator keeping the copyrights, the copyright and publishing rights belong to their employer. For example, when a staff writer drafts a blog for his employer, the company becomes the author and assumes the copyrights for the blog. All areas of copyright ownership now belong to the company, including credit for the blog and control of the blog. Work for hire is part of the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976 and changed the go-to rules of copyright ownership. Work for hire applies in two situations:

  • An employee creates work during her normal functions as an employee

Statement of Work: What Is It?

A statement of work (SOW) is a document that lists all the work a supplier will do during a project. It will define the amount of work, the expected quality of the job performance, and the timeframe for completion.

A well-written SOW will help both parties understand the parameters of a successful project. A poorly worded SOW could lead to conflict. The parties may argue over unclear expectations and the definition of good work.

To avoid such arguments, a well-written SOW should include:

  • A list of expected products and services
  • A list of tasks leading to the product's creation
  • Specifics regarding who will handle each of the listed tasks
  • Due dates for deliverables
  • Payment schedule and deadlines
  • Determination of which party will helm the project and handle major

Cliff Vesting

What Is Cliff Vesting?

Cliff vesting is the process where an employee gets fully vested on a given date. The employee receives his or her full benefits of the retirement plan on a specific date instead of in amounts over time. The "cliff" described is the date on which you become fully vested. A four-year vesting schedule with a one-year cliff is common.

Cliff vesting is the way that employees of a company can acquire full ownership of incentives or assets of the company's qualified retirement plan account on a specific, agreed-upon date, instead of over a longer period. This period cannot exceed six years. The "cliff" is usually one year in.

Companies put vesting schedules in place as a way to handle pension or retirement plans. There are other assets and benefits that can be specified. But they must meet t

Payroll Tax

  • 11 min read

What Are Payroll Taxes?

Payroll taxes are taxes which are imposed on employers and employees by federal, state, and local governments. Payroll tax is different than income tax since payroll tax is all the other taxes that aren’t income taxes that are taken out of your check.

The employer and employee split payroll tax half and half. The employer is required to withhold the amount of the employee's share of the payroll tax and submit to the IRS and the state along with payroll tax return.

Needless to say, young entrepreneurs see payroll tax as a big hassle and somewhere along the way, they are told to treat all of their workers as independent contractors so the entrepreneur can:

  • Skip the withholding and reporting requirements

  • Only need to send the contractor a 1099 form once each January
