Yale Pollack is a passionate and dedicated lawyer who serves as a critical resource for his clients on all aspects of labor and employment law. He heads the firm’s Labor and Employment practice group, leading a legal team both inside and outside the courtroom that provides practical guidance and effective solutions for clients navigating the complex web of laws governing the workplace.
Yale’s significant experience representing clients on both sides of the table enables him to bring a multidimensional perspective to each matter. His work includes representing employees and defending employers in administrative disputes before the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL), the New York State Department of Labor (NYDOL), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the New York State Division of Human Rights (NYSDHR), and city and county Human Rights Commissions. He also regularly represents both employees and employers in all types of employment-related litigation in state and federal court including workplace discrimination, wrongful termination, breach of contract, wage and hour, restrictive covenants, and more.
Yale’s practice also includes the drafting and negotiation of employment-related agreements, including employee handbooks, employment, severance, non-disclosure, and non-compete/non-solicitation agreements. He advises clients on the enforceability of previously drafted restrictive covenants and also works with employers to establish and draft employment policies and procedures.
Yale founded his own firm, The Law Offices of Yale Pollack, P.C., in 2015, serving both employers and employees in a variety of labor-related matters. The firm merged with CMM in January 2021. He began his career at a prominent Long Island firm, where he gained extensive experience handling civil disputes in areas including labor and employment, real estate, landlord-tenant, finance, banking, contracts, business torts, construction, collections, and personal injury. In 2010, he joined a national law firm with a primary practice in labor and employment law before starting his own firm.
