Amy L. Ventry-Kagan regularly litigates employment-related claims, from individual claims of sexual harassment and race, sex, age and disability discrimination, to class and collective actions in the areas of wage and hour and discrimination.
She also handles retaliation and wrongful discharge claims and litigates disputes arising in connection with non-compete agreements and breach of contract claims. Amy also litigates single, multi-plaintiff and class action ERISA matters.
She frequently appears in state and federal trial and appellate courts and before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), the New York State Division of Human Rights, and New York and New Jersey Departments of Labor.
