Employment law is constantly changing, making it increasingly crucial for businesses to obtain the advice of legal counsel when making policy and personnel decisions. Effective counsel can protect your rights and ensure that your business complies with the law.
Our Employment Law Services
Risk Assessment and Management
When a business comes to us for help with employment matters, performing a risk assessment is one of our most essential services. The assessment covers an array of employment law issues, including:
- Workplace violence
- Problems involving harassment and discrimination
- Contract and policy matters
We work closely with you to determine a cost-effective method to manage risks at your workplace. We can customize your business plan to meet your specific needs.
Even if you are not currently in a legal dispute with an employee, it is crucial to ensure that your policies, employee handbooks, contracts, and other documents comply with current laws.
We can review your personnel handbook and policies to eliminate inconsistent language and ambiguities that could lead to a breach of contract claims. We can also draft effective disclaimer statements for your business’s handbook that will help to protect you and your business from liability.
Harassment and Discrimination
Suppose you are facing a harassment or discrimination claim. In that case, our attorneys will work with your insurance to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the case, as well as the cost of settlement versus litigation. We use alternative dispute resolution methods to handle employment disputes whenever possible.
Preventing Employment Discrimination
Aside from the financial cost of an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) claim or an employment lawsuit, the overall impact on your organization can be significant. Putting strong measures in place now to prevent and address harassment and discrimination can avoid employment lawsuits and EEOC charges in the future. Our attorneys can review and write practical and helpful anti-discrimination policies for your business. We are also prepared to negotiate, mediate, and litigate claims when they arise.
Employment Litigation Prevention
As employment lawsuits become more frequent, it’s become increasingly critical to take proactive steps to prevent potential disputes with employees.
