Handbooks and Policies
Employee handbooks and written personnel policies are effective ways to establish rules and expectations for your respective employment relationships. If your business is ever involved in an employee lawsuit, your handbook and personnel policies can be integral to show that you in fact complied with the law. Keeping your handbook and policies accurate and up-to-date is important to any company that wants to minimize its exposure to litigation.
If your company does business in several states, you must be sure that whatever handbooks/policies you use for California employees fully complies with this state's unique laws. California employment laws are different (and generally more favorable to employees) than laws in other states.
Training and Advice and Counseling
I take pride in the fact that I help my employer clients avoid most employment disputes through preventive measures such as:
- Providing management training in employment issues such as sexual harassment and family leave rights under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- Drafting and reviewing employment agreements and employee handbooks
- Counseling employers in how to address and defuse looming employment disputes
- Negotiating resolution of disputes when they occur
In employment law, an ounce of prevention is worth several pounds of cure (i.e., litigation).
