SLG attorneys provide employment-related advice and counsel to businesses of all types, helping them anticipate and respond to the inherent challenges of maintaining a diverse workforce. We advise on day-to-day personnel issues, prepare employment policies and handbooks, and conduct company-wide employment audits to ensure that our clients’ policies and practices are compliant with state, local and federal requirements. In addition to our counseling services, we also create vital employment documents including offer letters, employment contracts, independent contractor agreements, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, arbitration agreements, separation agreements, and commission plans.
Our clients routinely encounter a range of employment-related issues. We provide practical counseling in all areas of employment law, including discrimination, retaliation, harassment, leaves of absence, wage and hour compliance, misclassification, and exempt status. We assist our clients with keeping up-to-date on the latest employment laws and human resources requirements to ensure they stay compliant. Our employment audits serve to proactively identify problems and potential non-conforming practices, as well as provide business-specific recommendations to ensure ongoing compliance with minimal disruption to our clients’ operations.
Our approach is to be creative and proactive in addressing the various issues our clients face. We assess each client’s unique set of circumstances in order to provide a specifically tailored solution, employing business-centric principles throughout our process. As all employers know, the employment relationship is both nuanced and complex. With this in mind, we work with clients to develop strategies that allow them to maintain the company culture they desire as their business evolves, all while ensuring that their employees are considered and respected.
