Employment Law

Representing Employers

COMPLIANCE & LITIGATION

Running a business is hard. Just surviving long enough to hire employees is something to be proud of. The problem is that adding employees makes things even more difficult to manage. Employers have a host of responsibilities when it comes to hiring and retaining talent. They have to comply with a host of federal laws, state laws, and various regulations. Just keeping things straight can be a nightmare.

To make matters worse, employees occasionally feel like they're being or have been mistreated. They file complaints and the investigation grinds your business to a halt. You try to comply with demands from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the state's own agency, but the demands are excessive and there is a lot on the line.

You need help. That's where I come in.

I help businesses deal with employment and labor issues by taking a proactive approach. I help you establish procedural safeguards against complaints and to keep your business compliant. The goal is to manage complaints before they spiral into litigation. If the EEOC files a charge, I can step in to handle the mediation, position statement, and EEOC investigation for you. And if there's a lawsuit, you better believe that I'm ready to litigate tooth and nail to protect your business.

Forge the distractions and keep running your business. I'll take care of it.
