Stroock Special Bulletin

By: Howard S. Lavin, Elizabeth E. DiMichele

Operators of family offices or other small businesses may not realize that they are obligated to comply with federal, state and local labor and employment laws.  While it is true that several employment laws only apply to large employers (e.g., the federal Family and Medical Leave Act, federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act, New York State Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act), many employment laws apply regardless of the number of individuals employed, including, but not limited to, anti-discrimination laws, the New York State Paid Family Leave Law, New York Workers’ Compensation Law and the New York City Earned Sick Leave Law.

This Stroock Special Bulletin is the first in a series intended to assist family offices in navigating the potential pitfalls involved with having employees.
