Labor & Employment Compliance

Change, including growth, comes with inherent risks. We’ll help you mitigate risks by complying with relevant regulation, implementing best practices to decrease the likelihood of employment-related lawsuits and ensuring employment-related complaints are handled properly.

We have the regulatory expertise to respond to current federal and state human resources laws, and we actively monitor changes to state and federal regulations. We can create and revise employee handbooks to fit your business needs and can re-evaluate applicable laws as your workforce grows.

Handbook, policy and recordkeeping reviews

A handbook is the HR multitool. Your policies are a central touchstone for your company’s culture. They set a baseline for acceptable behavior, ensure you have the data needed to accurately assess performance, keep you and your managers accountable to make decisions based on that data and insulate you from frivolous or unnecessary legal action. We will help you make sure your handbook, polices and recordkeeping are up to date and useful.
