Employment Law for Business
Our employment law group includes attorneys with experience at large, nationwide firms at which they counseled multi-national companies across a variety of industries, on all types of employment issues.
We utilize this experience to offer day-to-day counseling on how to properly pay employees and avoid unnecessary wage-and-hour and overtime risk; how to train staff and properly discipline employees to avoid hostile work environment, discrimination, and harassment claims; how to properly discipline employees to avoid retaliation risk; how to draft employee manuals and agreements to properly govern the workplace; how to handle requests for accommodations made by disabled employees; and how to implement strategies to protect valuable workplace property, including trade secrets. Our Employment Law Group works hand-in-hand with its clients as they navigate the myriad laws that impact the workplace and ensure safety, compliance, and fair treatment for all employees.
