Trusted Counsel For Area Businesses
If you’re a business owner who employs other people, you are subject to hundreds of rules and regulations governing the employment relationship. From minimum wage and overtime requirements, to anti-discrimination laws, to workers’ compensation and unemployment insurance plans — your business operates in a sea of regulation. We can help you navigate those waters, in order to avoid claims brought by employees.
Most (but not all) employment relationships are “at will,” meaning that employees can quit whenever they want, and employers can terminate workers whenever they want. But even within this “at will” relationship, state and federal laws regulate the way employers conduct themselves. The wages you pay, the number of coffee breaks you allow, and the length of medical leave you provide may all be dictated by law. At Anderson Bradley Krant, we’re familiar with the rules governing the workplace, and we can help you avoid fines and other liabilities for violation of those rules.
We can help your business craft personnel policies, employment agreements and even job descriptions to provide clarity in the employment relationship. We can draft severance agreements when the employment relationship has ended, and we can fashion independent contractor agreements if such a relationship exists. If your business deals in intellectual property or proprietary information, we can help you with confidentiality agreements and non-solicitation agreements. All of these agreements can serve to protect your business during the employment relationship and long after it has ended. They can help give you peace of mind.
We believe that responsible business owners operate in good faith, and if they run afoul of labor laws it’s because they don’t know the rules. We can help. Call us or e-mail us to set up an appointment.
