Helping you avoid further legal complications

Accordingly, our employment attorneys regularly counsel employers as to how to avoid problems and minimize risks with respect to such issues as employee discipline, harassment, drug testing, trade secrets and workplace violence. We also educate clients about the complex panoply of laws and regulations that govern their treatment of employees. Finally, we have experience drafting employee handbooks, work rules and employment agreements of all types, and we frequently review and update these types of documents for employers.
