Employment

Home / Practice Areas /
Businesses in this century face a staggering array of federal, state, and local laws and regulations that are presumably intended to protect the workforce, but in reality can create a multitude of problems for even the most innocuous conduct. Employers today must arm themselves with full knowledge of their duties and obligations to their employees in order to separate the wheat from the chaff as it relates to employee complaints.

Employment and human resources issues we handle regularly for our clients, who range from small business owners to nationally recognized companies, include:

  • My employee is paid a salary, so he/she is not entitled to overtime right?
  • How do I terminate a member of a protected class (age, gender, race, etc.) without asking for a lawsuit?
  • I have a worker’s compensation coverage. Isn’t that all I need?
  • An employee has filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Complaint ("EEOC") against my company. How should I handle this?
