Employment Law Preventative Counseling and Development of Policies and Procedures
We specialize in handling all aspects of employment-related matters, including providing guidance to clients as to the proper means of managing and overseeing employees and the workplace. Our attorneys have significant experience handling personnel matters—such as employee discipline, terminations, and drafting employee handbooks—with an eye toward avoiding or minimizing the risks of litigation. We draw upon our unique experience as employment lawyers to formulate and implement legal strategies with the objective of preventing costly litigation in or about the workplace.
Employment Policies and Procedures
The primary goals of employment policies and procedures should be to establish a healthy, safe and productive work environment and to manage and resolve employee matters or issues proactively. We assist clients in reviewing and establishing appropriate employment policies and procedures, counsel clients on risk management, work closely with human resources personnel, prepare employment agreements (including non-compete agreements), and train supervisory personnel on important employment issues to keep in mind in overseeing the workplace and managing employees.
We help prepare comprehensive employment handbooks or manuals that are specific to our clients’ workplaces, needs, and interests. Employee handbooks and manuals often include policies and procedures governing a wide variety of topics, from employee compensation and benefits to workplace standards and expectations. These policies typically cover concerns or complaints about harassment and discrimination, drug testing, background checks, pre-employment testing and protection of trade secrets or confidential business information.
We advise clients in detail on best practices related to employee hiring, discipline, terminations, responses to harassment and discrimination concerns or complaints, and employee compensation and benefits issues. Our attorneys also conduct different types of compliance audits for clients to assess the nature and extent of their compliance with applicable employment laws and to spot any issues or areas that implicate risk or some level of liability. We finally routinely provide clients with updates on recent changes in labor and employment laws and practices.
