Protecting Your Rights in the Workplace

Education Law

New York Education Attorneys

Employment law is our focus at the Law Offices of Vincent P. White. So when teachers need representation, we have the experience and commitment to work for them on a broad spectrum of legal issues.

3020-a Hearings: Preparation and Representation

Tenured teachers in New York have a right to a hearing before they can be fired for cause. Our lawyers prepare and defend tenured teachers at 3020-a hearings. A 3020-a hearing is much like a trial. And preparation is like any other trial: we examine the evidence, conduct interviews with other teachers and construct a defense strategy. Then we help our client effectively navigate the hearing.

Teacher Discrimination in New York Schools

For many reasons, age discrimination is a common practice in the field of education. Younger teachers will often work for less money and are less likely to speak up, so they are preferred by school administrators. This makes it more difficult for older teachers to find work. Our New York teachers’ harassment and discrimination lawyers can help teachers who feel they have been discriminated against.

Collective Bargaining and Teachers Unions

Teachers may have concerns about their collective bargaining units or possibly their unions. We represent teachers in front of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
