Review Jason Reisman

About Me

Jason E. Reisman devotes his practice to the representation of management in all aspects of labor relations and employment law with a particular focus on wage and hour matters, including providing training and guidance on overtime and exemption issues, handling Department of Labor audits and defending collective and class action litigation under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and similar state statutes. Mr. Reisman has extensive experience in equal employment opportunity matters before state and federal agencies, including federal employment discrimination litigation under Title VII, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, and similar state laws. He also possesses in-depth experience with union collective bargaining negotiations and in handling representation case and unfair labor practice case proceedings before the National Labor Relations Board. Mr. Reisman regularly assists his clients in the preparation of, and enforcement of litigation regarding, executive employment/severance agreements, including non-competition and other restrictive covenants.


Mr. Reisman’s clients range from small family-owned businesses to large multi-national corporations and represent a wide array of industries. He has represented manufacturers, chemical companies, healthcare-related organizations and providers, professional services firms, transportation providers, and warehouse and distribution operators, among others. Mr. Reisman’s ability to focus on his client’s business and objectives and to develop a plan to accomplish those objectives has proven to be invaluable. He is a calming influence, while being comfortable finding creative and unique ways to resolve everyday workplace situations. As a counselor, coach, and litigator, he believes in the importance of ensuring his clients understand how the labor and employment law landscape impacts their business, budget, and strategies. Mr. Reisman prides himself on being viewed as a valuable member of the business team. To that end, he is accessible and responsive around-the-clock to his clients.
