Counseling & Compliance
We advise clients on all aspects of employment law, including personnel policies, matters of discipline and discharge, internal investigations, workplace security and reductions in workforce. Our counsel is designed to satisfy the increasingly technical requirements of employment laws and to minimize a client’s exposure to potential lawsuits.
The Labor & Employment Group develops employee handbooks and performs human resources audits to evaluate policies already in place to ensure compliance with applicable laws and recommend best practices. We also prepare employment, non-competition and separation agreements, as well as contracts involving the protection of trade secrets or other proprietary information.
We routinely provide clients with practical advice needed to comply with the ever-changing regulatory and statutory framework of federal and state employment laws, including FMLA, ADA, ADEA, COBRA, FLSA, ERISA, record-keeping and unemployment compensation. Our lawyers closely monitor regulations and court decisions in order to apprise clients of any developments that may affect their personnel practices or potential liability.
In addition, many of our lawyers frequently conduct training seminars for management and human resource professionals on critical topics, such as sexual harassment, leave policies and wage and hour law.
