Zachary Rubin

Zach Rubin is a committed employees’ rights advocate who represents workers in wage and hour litigation, employment discrimination matters, and labor disputes in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies. He is currently engaged in a number of collective and class actions and individual employment matters involving workers across industries in the private and public sectors.

Zach has practiced labor and employment law since graduating from law school and previously worked for a prominent union-side law firm in Connecticut and as in-house counsel at a labor union in Connecticut. Zach enjoys the breadth of factual and legal issues that labor and employment attorneys must grapple with and has played key roles in litigation victories for his clients, including a 2017 case establishing that the employment protections in Connecticut’s medical marijuana statute are not preempted by federal law (the first time a federal court ruled on such an issue).

During law school, Zach worked as a law clerk at a union-side labor law firm in New York City and interned at Actors’ Equity Association, the National Labor Relations Board (Region 2), the New York State Supreme Court (trial level), and the NYC Office of Collective Bargaining. Additionally, Zach has long appreciated the importance of Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) in modern legal practice and served as Co-President of Brooklyn Law School’s ADR Society.
