New York Appeals Lawyers

How Employment Appeals Work in New York

In a traditional trial, the plaintiff’s and defendant’s legal teams work to convince a judge to rule in their favor based on the offense being alleged, the laws involved, and the available testimony and evidence. In employment law cases, it is possible that the court could rule against a wronged employee for several reasons, including a perceived lack of compelling evidence.

In an appeal, your legal team will instead attempt to convince the appellate court that a mistake was made in the lower court. As a result, the lower court’s decision must be reversed. This is accomplished through reviewing the decisions that were made in the trial and whether any were done in error. The defense will provide a brief explaining why they believed the decision was correct and just, while your legal team will prepare a brief arguing why the ruling was improper and must be overturned.
