Vincent Avery is an associate in the Labor & Employment Practice Group. He focuses his practice on defending employers in state and federal litigation involving all types of employment-related lawsuits, ranging from individual and class-based wage and hour litigation under the FLSA, NYLL, New York Hospitality Wage Order, and NJWHL, to single and multi-plaintiff discrimination and retaliation claims asserted under various employment statutes. Vincent also regularly represents companies in arbitration, mediation and administrative proceedings before the DOL, EEOC, NYSDHR and NJDCR, as well as in traditional labor law matters, including collective bargaining, union elections, union-employer relations, grievance arbitrations and claims asserted before the NLRB.

In addition, Vincent counsels employers on various wage and hour issues, including overtime pay, minimum wage issues, prevailing wage concerns, tip credit and service charge issues, payroll practices, and employee classification disputes, as well on spectrum of more general employment matters, such as employee terminations, disciplinary actions, harassment training, employee investigations, and leave-related issues arising under the FMLA and other statutory schemes.
