General Employment Matters

We were built with a central focus of servicing clients on labor and employment issues.

As a Firm, we regularly:

  • counsel employers on day-to-day issues;
  • analyze whether workers are properly classified as independent contractors or employees;
  • analyze whether workers are properly classified as exempt from the FLSA’s overtime requirements;
  • draft handbooks and policies;
  • draft employment agreements (when appropriate);
  • draft non-compete, non-solicitation, and confidentiality agreements;
  • devise plans and strategies to prevent claim of unpaid wages;
  • provide internal audits to identify areas of exposure;
  • train workers on how to prevent issues in the workplace;
  • provide advice on employee discipline and discharges;
  • provide advice on traditional labor/union issues; and
  • provide all other labor and employment work needed by our institutional clients.

We provide general counseling on virtually the full-spectrum of labor and employment laws, including:

  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
