Employer Advice and Problem Solving

In assisting clients with devising strategies aimed at avoiding problems, rather than reacting to crises, our attorneys assist and advise employers concerning all matters pertaining to the employment relationship, including:

  • alcohol and drug testing, and workplace privacy concerns;
  • background investigations, lawful hiring inquiries and hiring challenges;
  • discipline, demotion, termination and other day-to-day human resources decisions;
  • drafting and complying with employee handbooks and human resources policies;
  • leaves of absence and disability accommodation obligations;
  • preparing and enforcing employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, and severance or separation agreements;
  • workforce reductions, facility closures, and related matters; and
  • compliance with federal, state, and local labor laws and regulations.
