Small Business Services

The imperative of any growing small business is to prevent employment-related legal disputes, and to address them head-on when they arise

With our expertise in employment law and federal labor laws, we provide effective, hands-on legal services to your business. We believe that “an ounce of preventing is worth a pound of cure.” To ensure compliance with federal laws, state laws, and the U.S. Department of Labor, we offer our small business owners services such as:
  • Drafting employment policies, including:
    • Equal employment opportunity provisions
    • Anti-harassment policies
    • Alternative dispute resolution and arbitration agreements
    • Consultation regarding employment compensation to ensure part-time and full time employees are properly classified, and compensated in compliance with the Department of Labor and wage and hour laws, including the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

  • Drafting and negotiating the terms of employment-related contracts, including:
    • Non-competition
    • Non-solicitation
    • Severance agreements
    • Arbitration agreements
    • Compensation structures
Legal disputes do arise in the work environment. If your small business is faced with a demand letter, a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), or a lawsuit, we offer professional representation, with an eye toward resolving matters in the most cost-effective way possible for eligible employees. Our employee rights expertise includes: 
  • Claims of discrimination on the basis of race, sex, age, disability, religion, etc.
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Sexual harassment
  • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) claims, such as unpaid overtime
  • Negligent hiring or retention

We can also assist with Unemployment Insurance matters.
