Long Island, the 11th largest island in the United States and the most populated island in any U.S. state or territory, is home to a workforce that faces a diverse range of employment law issues that Blitman & King’s

have extensive experience in managing. A recent study of Nassau and Suffolk Counties highlighted seventeen industries that are significant to Long Island including:
- merchant wholesalers of durable goods involving professional and sales positions with technical expertise in medical equipment, electronics and communications equipment;
- merchant wholesalers of nondurable goods including professional and sales positions with technical expertise in pharmaceuticals;
- financial services and activities such as credit union and bank executives and employees, mortgage brokers, loan officers and underwriters of annuities and insurance policies;
- professional and business services such as research and development laboratories, computer systems design, engineering consulting, accounting and legal services;
- health care services such as doctors, nurse practitioners, skilled nurses, health aids, hospitals, nursing and residential care facilities;

These industries shape the employment law matters we handle on behalf of our clients in Nassau County and Suffolk County.

In addition, our employment practice is well versed at handling the entry and exit of medical doctors from a medical practice including the associated non-competition and restrictive covenants as well as counseling nurses and other health care employees on highly-sensitive issues such as fraud against the government.
