As employment lawsuits become more frequent, it’s become increasingly critical to take proactive steps to prevent potential disputes with employees. Employment disputes can disrupt a company’s work environment and significantly impact credibility with both employees and the public.
Our Employee Litigation Prevention Services
Creating and Managing a Successful Business Culture
We can design a compliance plan to document policy training, hiring, and promotion practices so that your business can demonstrate its good faith efforts to prevent discrimination.
Beyond helping you develop written policies, our employment lawyers can also provide supervisory and personnel training and other strategic assistance to help you create a healthy business culture. Managing workplace issues such as disputes, harassment, bullying, retaliation, and anger can defuse them before they become problems and make your business a better workplace.
Establishing Effective Employment Policies and Practices
Our employment attorneys have helped many businesses throughout the Shenandoah Valley develop employee handbooks, policies, and practices. Employment handbooks often include:
- Workplace rules and protocols
- Anti-discrimination policies
- How employee complaints will be handled
- What type of disciplinary action will be taken with offenders
- Details about the appeal process if employees are not satisfied with the outcome of a complaint
- Discussion of retaliation (another form of discrimination)
Hoover Penrod can help your company evaluate and manage the risks caused by employer/employee disputes, create strategies to avoid those risks, and make sure your company complies with current employment laws.
Benefits of Employment Litigation Prevention
In our experience, employers that establish strong measures to prevent and address harassment and discrimination before disputes occur are far less likely to end up in expensive litigation and tend to have happier workplaces.
