Our team of experienced lawyers assists businesses in a variety of employment strategy and compliance matters. We specialize in providing practical, real-world solutions that work for employers of all sizes and types.
Trust Our Experienced Employment Attorneys
Our employment attorneys believe that taking a proactive stance to employment and compliance issues is the most effective — and cost-effective — way to reduce legal and financial liability.
We can assist you with all types of matters involving employees, independent contractors and related topics. This includes:
Confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements
Independent contractor agreements
Onboarding policies and procedures
Hiring practices and compensation structures
Performance review policies
Substance abuse and testing policies
Termination policies and practices
With the right policies and procedures in place, you can position your business to grow and thrive while reducing the risk of unexpected and costly legal matters.
Compliance issues can be especially problematic for employers. The applicable laws and regulations change often and can be difficult to interpret from a legal perspective. We work closely with you (and your human resources team, if applicable) to ensure you take the steps necessary to become and remain compliant with local, state and federal laws and governing policies.
We can assist you with matters related to wage-and-hour issues, taxation, discrimination allegations, unfair hiring or employment disputes, and more. We also assist clients with matters relating to independent contractors — an issue that has become even more prominent with the advent of the so-called “gig economy.”
Our team of experienced employment attorneys can represent you in legal action regarding discrimination, wrongful termination, breach of contract, wage disputes or any other employment-related matters. We also have extensive experience in labor negotiations, union matters, employee lawsuits and EEOC violations.
Employment Strategy Development
Unfortunately, many business owners do not adopt a proactive employment strategy for their companies. Not only does this increase your legal and financial risk, but it can also hinder your business in other ways.
Adopting a proactive employment strategy is one of the best ways to ensure that you hire and retain the most qualified employees. You can reduce turnover (and the hassle and excess costs turnover can create), improve employee morale and increase engagement. Employees may be less likely to seek other jobs and you can even reduce absenteeism.
In the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we can also advise you on how to minimize your firm’s legal liability with regard to employee exposure and related threats.
