Employment Counseling

Employment Counseling

We counsel employers on compliance with federal, state and local employment laws, rules and regulations.  We focus on risk management and mitigation, and advise employers on best practices concerning a wide range of employment issues, including leaves of absence, reasonable accommodations, the interactive process, and retaliation.

 

We provide training seminars for management and employee harassment training.  We draft employee handbooks and policies and procedures that form the foundation of a positive, thriving and compliant workplace.

 

We counsel employers through performance issues, disciplinary measures, reductions in force and terminations.  

 

We negotiate and draft agreements that govern the employer-employee relationship, including employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, arbitration agreements, intellectual property assignment agreements, executive compensation agreements and severance agreements.

 

We handle all aspects of wage and hour compliance, including counseling employers on classification, independent contractors, and time recording systems, and we develop and implement strategic wage and hour risk mitigation techniques.  Our focus is always on partnering with our clients to consistently and effectively improve efficiencies, develop best practices and mitigate risk.

 

We developed effective and compliant health and safety policies and procedures governing employment during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We counseled employers through all aspects of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the workplace.
