The team of attorneys at Bleakley Platt & Schmidt is experienced in defending clients charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (such as marijuana).

The New York Health and Essential Rights Act (HERO Act) was signed into law by Governor Andrew Cuomo on May 5, 2021. The HERO Act added two new sections to the New York Labor Law: Section 218-b, requiring all private employers to adopt airborne infectious disease prevention plans and standards; and Section 27-D, requiring private employers with 10 or more employees to allow the creation and administration of joint labor-management workforce safety committees. Governor Cuomo approved clarifying amendments (the Amendments) to the HERO Act on June 14, 2021. The HERO Act and its Amendments impose significant workplace health and safety obligations on New York employers.
