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.
Our New York appeals attorneys can assist you with appeals in cases involving:
- FMLA claims
- Hostile work environments
- Reasonable accommodation disputes

We understand that challenging your employer or former employer is frightening in the first place, and losing an initial court battle can be extremely dispiriting. Our team is committed to helping you explore every possible legal option, including appeals.

After having a terrible experience at my last job, facing the anxiety again of having to rehash the treatment was daunting. Davida Perry not only did an amazing job calming down my nerves but she fought for me tooth and nail and did a great job securing what my past employer owed me. I won’t lie, there were moments I wanted to give up, but Davida was always there to help me stay focused and realize that I didn’t need to let them win. She was really great at countering all of their arguments, I pity anyone that would try to prove her wrong. She thought of everything we need and kept me constantly updated. Mostly what I appreciated about Davida was her kindness, and her genuine care for my mental health. She wanted to make sure I was taking care of myself during a very trying time. I cannot recommend this firm enough. They all clearly care about their clients and want to do best for you. Don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself, and if you’re worried about the challenges that lie ahead be sure to team with Schwartz Perry & Heller, they will have your back and fight for justice.- T.B.
Brian was extremely helpful and responsive it helping me review my first ever separation agreement. He was able to explain the legalese in a way that allowed me to understand the risks I could be taking on down the road. After speaking to him, I was able to negotiate to include additional language in my agreement that will protect my future career. He was nothing but professional and incredibly responsive. I can't recommend him enough.- Former Client
