Labor + Employment lawyer Jason Pruzansky advises on and litigates everything from federal and state wage and hour law and discrimination matters to collective bargaining, restrictive covenants, contract disputes and wrongful termination. He represents some of the largest and best-known construction and hospitality companies in the United States, major retail chains, manufacturers, financial institutions, family offices, and advertising companies.

Jason creates bespoke solutions for clients based on their culture, priorities, outlook and risk tolerance. He works with them to ensure compliance with the wide array of applicable laws and regulations and helps them avoid disputes before they occur. Whether drafting employment agreements and policies, conducting sensitive internal investigations, negotiating contracts, or guiding clients through transactions or even litigation, he looks beyond today’s problem, anticipating and heading off future headaches.

When the inevitable dispute does arise, Jason works closely with clients to defend their interests, control litigation expense and achieve a favorable result. His exceptional experience includes many “bet the company” litigations, including matters involving federal and state wage and hour and anti-discrimination laws, the FCRA, ERISA, WARN Act, FMLA and NLRA. He has achieved winning results in federal and state courts, before arbitrators, regulators and administrative agencies in cases ranging from single-plaintiff employment disputes to nationwide class actions.

With a proven ability to handle complex, extremely high-value matters, he guides clients through the maze of labor, employment and benefits issues they face. Equally valuable is his skill in resolving labor disputes, negotiating collective bargaining agreements and managing labor relations. However, what clients value most is Jason’s success in addressing the countless issues that arise last minute, any one of which can derail a deal, prolong or prevent transactions from closing, topple employee relations, or damage a company’s reputation and bottom line.
