About Steven Mitchell Sack

New York Employee’s Lawyer

New York Employee’s Lawyer | steven mitchell sack

Steven Mitchell Sack, The Employee’s Lawyer ® , has been enforcing the workplace rights of employees, executives and salespeople for over 41 years. Although employment law is complex and ever-changing, employees now have more legal rights than ever before. As an advocate, Mr. Sack strives to educate the workforce on their employee rights and how they may go about protecting those rights. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and Boston College Law School, and the author of 20 books, Mr. Sack is driven to protect employees by providing invaluable job, career, and legal strategies.

Mr. Sack maintains a New York law practice 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, Fortune, 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 has
been interviewed by Forbes for numerous articles on discrimination-related
workplace matters.

Mr. Sack is the recipient of the prestigious Long Island Business
News Leadership in Law award in the Sole Practitioner category for several
years and, in 2021, was named as a Trailblazer in Employment Law by The
National Law Journal.

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).

Mr. Sack is also an author, lecturer and former radio show host. This year, he is
releasing a new book FIRED! Protect Your Rights & FIGHT BACK If You’re Terminated, Laid Off, Downsized, Restructured, Forced to Resign or Quit through his publishing company Legal Strategies Publications.
