Steven Mitchell Sack, The Employee’s Lawyer®, has been enforcing the workplace rights of employees, executives and salespeople for over 37 years. Although employment law is complex and ever-changing, employees now have more legal rights than ever before. As the worker’s advocate, Mr. Sack strives to educate the workforce on their employee rights and how they may go about protecting those rights in the workplace. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and Boston College Law School, and the author of 19 books, Mr. Sack is driven to protect employees by providing invaluable job, career, and legal strategies.
Steven Mitchell Sack maintains two law offices in New York–one in Manhattan and one in East Meadow, Long Island–under the philosophy that nothing is more important than a client’s needs. The law practice is devoted to severance negotiations of terminated executives and employees, job discrimination lawsuits, contract negotiations, representation of salespeople in breach-of-contract and commission disputes, class action hour and wage litigation, and general labor law. His comments on job issues have been reported in the Wall Street Journal, Newsday, the Daily News and the New York Post, and he has appeared on Oprah, CNN, Fox News, and Good Day New York. Mr. Sack is the recipient of the prestigious Long Island Business News Leadership in Law award in the Sole Practitioner category for the last three years.
In a legal case decided in September 2015, Mr. Sack, with trial counsel Scott A. Lucas, represented three women who were wrongfully terminated when their employer discovered that they were pregnant, and obtained a $6.2 million jury verdict in Bronx Supreme Court. Additionally, with Attorney Scott A. Lucas, Mr. Sack obtained a favorable decision changing New York law for waiters who were denied tips, thus making it harder for restaurants and caterers to keep gratuities intended for their wait staff. The New York Court of Appeals case was Samiento v. World Yacht, Inc. 10 N.Y.3d 70 (2008).
