Brooklyn Employment Law and Employment Discrimination Attorney
No one has the right to harass you at your place of work or deny you access to employee benefits. The Elisofon Law Office is here to provide guidance and protect the rights of workers from abusive colleagues or opportunistic management. The Elisofon Law Office has extensive knowledge of state and federal labor and employment laws and are committed to providing prompt legal advice in all employment-related issues. We have earned an excellent reputation for our ability to provide day-to-day compliance counseling and just resolutions to workplace disputes. Through our exceptional skills in settlement negotiations, mediation, arbitration and court trials, we can obtain the best possible solution to your case.

Ready to stand up to big corporations
We understand that employees are often hesitant to sue their employers or stand up for their wage and hour rights, particularly when their employers are large corporations. We support you through this stressful period of time and help you receive the justice you deserve. Our attorneys can assist you with:

-Employment discrimination
-Withheld overtime payments
-Unpaid wages
-Administrative hearings
-Whistleblower
-Retaliation
-Wrongful discharge/ termination

Zealously fighting employment discrimination in the workplace
Employment should be based upon your skills, knowledge and experience, not on arbitrary qualities that do not affect your ability to perform your job. Employers are prohibited from discriminatory practices regarding hiring, promotion, termination, types of assignments and pay. When making decisions, employers cannot legally consider:
-Race
-Gender
-Pregnancy
-Age
-Religion
-Nationality
-Disability
-Sexual orientation

Our attorneys redress the discrimination and level the unfair employment playing field.

Advising employers on compliance
Our attorneys work with employers to ensure continued compliance with complex New York and federal regulations. Even at a company that is diligent about regulatory compliance, however, legal disputes arise. Having proper legal representation to guide your company helps you deal with current disputes in an expedient fashion and gives you the opportunity to avoid potentially problematic situations as you develop your plans for the future. We routinely provide assistance with:

-Employment contracts
-Non-compete agreements
-Employment handbooks
-Policy matters
-Employee relations management
-Equal employment opportunity conflicts
-Discrimination-based conflicts
-Corporate compliance
-Senior executive appointments and severance

Pamela A. Elisofon

Prior to becoming a member of the BAR in 1993, Pamela A. Elisofon had extensive experience in the business world. In her early years, she worked in advertising, ultimately becoming an Account Executive. While raising her children, sons Greg and Jared, she ran her own interior decorating business, and later studied to become a certified computer programmer. In 1984, seeking employment as a computer programmer, she took a job at Unisys Corporation (nee Sperry) where she was cajoled to stay by the Law Department, becoming a Contracts Analyst after a couple of years. While working at Unisys full-time, she was sponsored and accepted into a paralegal night program at Adelphi, and, after completing her paralegal studies, earned her bachelor's degree at night at Adelphi University. She continued to be sponsored by her friends at Unisys, going on to earn her J.D. in 1992 at St. John's University Law School as a night student while working full-time during the day at Unisys Corp.

Pam finds that her maturity and prior years of business experience are invaluable to her legal practice. She prides herself on the individualized and personal attention that only a small office can offer. She currently practices at 26 Court Street, Brooklyn, where she shares office space with her husband Barry Elisofon, a renowned and expert matrimonial/divorce attorney.

A large portion of Pam's practice is devoted to employment and employment discrimination law (grounded in age, race, religion, national origin, sex and disability discrimination, and including Wage & Hour issues). She has obtained very substantial recoveries for her clients in the employment arena. She also practices in the areas of wills and probate, divorce, contracts, civil litigation and real estate. Pam is admitted to practice in New York, Florida, and the Eastern and Southern District Courts of New York and the U.S. Supreme Court.

In addition to running her busy practice, Pam, a seasoned attorney with a great deal of expertise, is respected by the courts and often appointed as a referee, a guardian ad litem, a guardian and a court evaluator. For the last decade or so, she has also volunteered as an arbitrator at Kings County's Small Claims Court.

Pamela is a past President of the Brooklyn Women's Bar Association (the "BWBA") and has served on the Board of Directors of the BWBA, the Brooklyn Bar Association, the St. John's Alumni Association & Brooklyn Branch, and the Hypothetical Theatre Company. She is well-known and well-respected in the legal community.

Pamela also chairs the Labor and Employment Committees of the Brooklyn Bar Association ("BBA") and the Women's Bar Association of the State of New York ("WBASNY"). She keeps up memberships in the National Employment Lawyer's Association ("NELA"), the Torah Club, and the Jewish Lawyer's Guild.
