While the law gives employers a lot of discretion to define the terms of the employment relationship and make decisions about hiring, firing, promotion, demotion, discipline, and other terms and conditions of employment, the “alphabet soup” of federal, state, and local anti-discrimination statutes can be a minefield for employers—especially new and small businesses who may not have large HR departments and established procedures for managing employees. Korder Law can help your business minimize the risk of liability for discrimination, harassment, and retaliation by providing counseling and training about your rights and obligations under the law and establishing effective and lawful policies and procedures. When you are faced with the difficult task of firing, demoting, or disciplining an employee, an attorney can provide legal advice about how to do so in compliance with the law.
The law also imposes various requirements on employers related to wages and hours, including minimum wage, overtime wages, and notice and record-keeping requirements. Compliance with wage and hour laws can be confusing for employers, and violations can expose employers to liability for damages. Korder Law can help you understand your rights and obligations under the law and minimize your risk of liability for violations.
Korder Law can also help your business with various other employment-related issues, such as employment contracts and severance agreemenets, employee misclassification, drafting and reviewing employee handbooks, and labor relations.
If a current or former employee has complained about a violation of the law, Korder Law can help your business try to resolve the dispute informally and avoid litigation.
Contact Korder Law now for legal advice about any of these issues.
