Labor and Employment Law Counseling
Employers often need to pick up the telephone and get an immediate answer to important employment questions. Employers need access to their counsel, and our employment attorneys pride themselves on being quickly responsive to employer’s questions. Quality counseling is an effective tool in preventing or mitigating problems that otherwise could lead to litigation.
When employers are faced with litigation, they need seasoned attorneys who have real trial experience and a practical approach to litigation. Our employment attorneys can work with you through each step of the litigation process to help you make the right decisions.
Employers may need to conduct an internal investigation of discrimination complaints. Such investigations need to be thorough and handled properly in the context of the corporate environment. Our attorneys are familiar with dealing with executives and human resource departments. We can conduct an investigation that is thorough, responsive, efficient, and effective.
Employee Handbooks and Related Documentation
A well-crafted employee handbook is not only useful to employees; it is an effective tool for an employer. A well-written handbook can be effective in barring employee lawsuits. However, there is no “one size fits all” form of handbook. Working carefully with employers, we can effectively and efficiently craft an employment handbook. Also, regular review and updates to handbooks are strongly advised.
Various national and local agencies require the regular filing of documentation regarding employees. We can help you and your human resource department ensures compliance with local and national requirements.
