At Schor Vogelzang we are people first...just like you.



Get To Know Us

Renée Schor created her own law firm to better partner with companies who share their vision of an ideal workplace. At Schor Vogelzang & Chung we believe that an employment law firm should provide more than forms and summaries of the law. We partner with our clients to create legal solutions that make business sense, that reflect their corporate culture and that give them peace of mind.


Renee Schor, Partner

Renée Schor has been practicing since 1990 helping employers around the world meet their vision for an ideal workplace. Her experience resulted in a core belief that if a company creates, communicates and reinforces clear expectations that are consistent with its goals, values and vision, the workplace “puzzle” can be solved. Her practice includes the following expertise:

    Counseling on creating and enforcing policies and establishing human resource systems that are legally compliant, set clear expectations for the employee and the employer, and make business sense for the employer’s unique workplace, and providing ongoing counsel to support creating and reinforcing these systems;

    Educating and training employers on means for creating and maintaining great workplaces, including on avoiding and investigating harassment, understanding leaves of absence and managing performance;

    Investigating claims of misconduct, including harassment or discrimination;

    Defending employers against claims of wage and hour violations, discrimination, harassment, retaliation and other employment-related claims.
