Preventing Employee Lawsuits

Accountant Doing Accounting, financial adviser working

Experts in employment law at Hoover Penrod PLC – serving Harrisonburg, Staunton, Winchester, and other communities in Central Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley – can assist you in developing workplace policies that prevent costly and time-consuming lawsuits.

The firm’s attorneys have decades of experience helping businesses navigate the increasingly turbulent waters roiling this branch of the law.

A suit filed by an employee can be devastating to a company – especially a small one. This may be true even if the case is eventually resolved in the company’s favor.

Meticulous and transparent handling of employee complaints goes hand-in-hand with business productivity. Employees who have confidence in the fairness of the process are less likely to resort to legal action.

Hoover Penrod PLC helps companies draft handbooks, mission statements, and policies that clarify how:

  • Grievances are dealt with;
  • Disciplinary action is imposed;
  • Appeals are considered.

Allegations of harassment and discrimination are serious matters. Companies are wise to have in place all the tools they may need to address a potential issue before it arises.
