Our team understands that strong human resource policies are of paramount importance in developing effective long-term risk avoidance strategies. We work behind the scenes to assist our clients in drafting policies to address progressive discipline, drug and alcohol policies, background checks, hiring and termination practices, record collection and retention, protection and use of confidential information, and related issues. We also create and update employee handbooks, along with crafting non-competition and severance and transition agreements for our clients. Additionally, we provide audits of employer records to ensure compliance with applicable state and federal statutes.
Our team provides training, education, and consultation to management and HR professionals in the areas of ethics, diversity and inclusion, harassment, retaliation, and discrimination avoidance, and other areas of interest to our clients.
When issues arise, we are there to step in and assist with initial investigation and analysis of employee complaints. We work with our clients to determine the best strategy for resolution of issues, focusing on avoiding litigation where possible. If complaints develop into administrative agency complaints or litigation, we have experience representing clients before federal agencies and courts in complaints involving the Americans with Disabilities Act, Age Discrimination in Employment Act, Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Fair Labor Standards Act, Equal Pay Act, and Family Medical Leave Act. We have also represented clients before state administrative agencies in Illinois, Maryland, and Virginia.
