Any business hiring employees is bound by law to follow federal and state guidelines. You should have employment contracts in place for your key employees to ensure you will not place confidential information at risk inadvertently. In addition, you may feel it is necessary to have an employment manual in place. We can help with the drafting and review of these manuals to ensure you are in full compliance with state and federal guidelines for employers.
Interviewing potential employees, placing negative information in an employee’s permanent file, or firing an employee often are risky issues. These issues should be discussed with a knowledgeable employment attorney to ensure you are not violating any rules that could put you in legal jeopardy.
When an employee or potential employee files a complaint against you claiming harassment, discrimination, or makes another claim, you need someone who is willing to take the time to listen to your side of the issue and determine the right steps to take.
