Employment Law

Payroll and Employment-Related Counsel

Employment and payroll can be one of the most challenging aspects of running a business. The number of issues which can arise related to the payment of your workforce can seem overwhelming. With proper legal counsel, you can feel confident knowing that you are covered, and that all of your questions will be answered. We can assist you with understanding the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other federal and state regulations which can impact your employees and their compensation.

Dealing with employment issues is one of the most cross-cutting topics in the field of business. Because these issues often arise suddenly, proper mitigation needs to be done not only via legal support, but also for public relations purposes. We can provide you with immediate advice and consulting to help meet your needs in these areas.

Our office provides thorough knowledge and advice in areas such as:

  •       Discrimination
  •       Termination and severance agreements
  •       Issues of paternity and maternity
  •       Harassment
  •       Due process and grievance issues
  •       Whistle-blowing situations
