Patricia M. Mulligan, Esq. has been practicing Labor & Employment Law for nearly a quarter century, handling complex cases in both Federal and State courts, as well as before administrative tribunals, including the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, the New York State Department of Labor, the New York State Division of Human Rights and the New York City Office of Administrative Trials & Hearings.
Ms. Mulligan is a vigorous advocate for employees aggrieved by unlawful employment discrimination; for those facing suspension or termination of employment, and for those who are denied the payment of proper wages, including overtime wages.
Ms. Mulligan also represents employers seeking to adopt a "best practices" approach to employee relations, and has drafted employee handbooks, sexual harassment prevention policies and conducted training and position classification audits to ensure that employees are correctly classified as exempt (salaried) or non-exempt (entitled to the payment of overtime wages) and that the use of independent contractors does not run afoul of applicable labor laws. Ms. Mulligan has also defended employers accused of violating applicable state and federal labor & employment laws.
