Attorney Daniel H. Schneider, principle of the firm, has extensive experience in employment law, and successfully representing employees of both large and small employers, on a wide variety of claims in the state of Connecticut. Opposing parties include large manufacturers, small businesses, universities, municipalities, the state of Connecticut, a country club, hospitals, nursing homes. Over his long experience, Attorney Schneider has tried cases before juries, judges, administrative forums, and at arbitration.

Attorney Schneider has brought claims involving racial discrimination, disability discrimination, whistleblowing, and retaliation.

However, please be aware that many employment law claims have very short filing deadlines (statutes of limitations). For instance, by way of example only, generally claims for retaliation for complaining about work place safety issues must be filed with the United States Department of Labor, OSHA within only 30-days of the employer retaliating against the employee. Although this is one of the shorter filing deadlines applicable to employment law claims, and sometimes there can be ways around issues created by such filing deadlines; in some instances (such as the deadline to file union grievances under certain collective bargaining agreements), the deadline to file can even be shorter.

Thus, it is important that one with employment law issues act promptly to retain competent counsel.
