Employment Law / Compliance

At Jacobson Goldberg & Kulb LLP, we recognize the challenges our clients face in maintaining compliance with the complex maze of laws, rules and regulations that govern their businesses and practices. Various governmental authorities investigating complaints or conducting investigative or compliance-related audits can impose substantial civil or criminal penalties on the unwary.

Health care professionals must be prepared to navigate this environment to assure compliance with the specialized laws governing health care providers. Our attorneys have many years of experience providing advice and representing clients regarding Stark and the Anti-Kickback Laws, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), Medicaid, Medicare and HIPAA Compliance Plans and Business Associate Agreements.

The workplace environment also gives rise to regulatory scrutiny. We provide advice and representation to our clients in wage and overtime disputes; unemployment claims; age ethnic, racial, religious and sex discrimination claims and OSHA matters. We counsel our clients regarding the development of compliant workplace practices. We represent clients in litigation involving breaches of employment contracts and restrictive covenants, wrongful discharge and discriminatory practices. We also litigate before the New York State Division of Human Rights.
