To run a legal business, you must comply with a vast, complex set of laws. Our attorneys will help ensure that you are compliant with all state and federal regulations. Don’t navigate this dense web of rules alone. Our job is to make sure you’re complying in all of the following areas:
Businesses must treat their employees to the high standards set by state and federal laws, such as:
Labor Relations Laws
Health and Safety Laws
We can review your policies and practices, and make sure that they are compliant with all relevant employment laws. We want to help you create a positive culture for your business, and your employees. We also want to educate you on the nuances of these laws, and update you as they evolve.
Tax laws are not simple, and rules for compliance will vary based on the type of business. Our attorneys have counseled businesses across many industries. We will be proactive in spotting potential problem areas. We’ll advise you on the tax differences between employees, and independent contractors. We are also experienced when it comes to federal and state tax audits, and litigation. Disputes between businesses and tax authorities require strong representation. We can help you to resolve issues, and more importantly, prevent them from arising in the first place.
Human Resources (HR)
Our attorneys will review your human resource policies and procedures. This is necessary to ensure compliance with state and federal laws. We can advise you on how to keep your practices in line with current standards. This is important for legal reasons, and it will help you retain valuable employees. We’ll keep you up to date on relevant legislation. We’ll also advise you on termination procedures, and federal laws such as:
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)
The Affordable Care Act (ACA)
Failure to comply with these laws can result in financial and legal penalties. Let us offer you the peace of mind in knowing your company is in full compliance.
Your employee handbook should be unique to your industry, and your company's size. We can help you make sure it follows all state and federal guidelines. It must include all workplace policies, and be in compliance with current laws. We’ll review your handbook to ensure compliance in all areas. Without the expertise of a lawyer, that can be a difficult process. We’ll also look for any illegal, contradictory, or missing statements. A complete handbook will address employee concerns, and prevent confusion. As a result, it serves as a crucial tool to reduce workplace conflicts, and avoid lawsuits.
