Avoiding costly employment litigation begins with the establishment of effective employee policies and procedures. Our attorneys work with our employer clients to develop and update employment policies and practices focused on each business’ particular needs. We draft employee handbooks and keep up to date on evolving State and Federal laws so that we can advise our clients to ensure compliance with workplace matters. In addition, we advise our business clients on handling “problem” employees, internal grievances, harassment claims, leaves of absence, workplace privacy, independent contractor/employee distinction issues, disability accommodation, wage and hour matters, employee severance agreements, and workplace investigations.
Our employment attorneys also present seminars on employment issues, including the following topics:
- Sexual Harassment Training (Required for California employers with 5 or more workers)
- Pregnancy, Disability and Other Leave Requirements
- California’s Sick Leave Law: The Healthy Workplace Healthy Family Act of 2014
- Employment Law Updates
Our employer clients can easily get started or update their employment practices with our Smart Employer Package that includes: a one-hour initial meeting, preparation of an employee handbook tailored to your business, guidance on how to comply with California’s mandatory sick leave law and required employment notices, and a thirty minute follow up meeting to answer any questions you may have.
