We regularly provide legal counseling, advice, and management training on the full range of employment law issues that employers encounter on a daily basis. We help companies understand and comply with the myriad of laws and regulations affecting today’s workplace. We develop preventive strategies to minimize litigation exposure, including drafting and implementing employee handbooks and other personnel policies and procedures, and training managers and employees on best practices for employment decision making, documentation, and maintaining a respectful and harassment-free workplace. We help plan for and manage workforce changes, such as plant closings and reductions in force. We develop strategies to protect trade secrets and confidential information, and to prevent unlawful competition by former employees. We also provide counsel on day-to-day matters such as hiring, disciplinary actions, terminations, workforce reductions, background and credit checks, workplace safety, family and medical leave, job descriptions, wage and hour compliance, performance reviews, disability accommodations, workplace privacy and surveillance issues, drug and alcohol testing, record retention procedures, and many more.
