Employment Law (Employer Side)

How an Employment Lawyer Can Benefit Your Company

Managing a business can be both fulfilling and challenging as is, but it becomes more complicated for an employer when legal challenges are encountered. An employment attorney can be of assistance to employers who are battling lawsuits or who simply want to secure their business assets with a legal safety net. There are several ways that an employment attorney can be of benefit to your corporation.

Employment Discrimination

Surely, you are familiar with equal opportunity employment policies and likely adhere to them. However, this may not make you exempt from lawsuits claiming workplace discrimination. An employment lawyer can advise you of both federal and state employment laws to ensure that your business remains in compliance and represent you in any workplace discrimination claims.

Hostile Work Environment

Most business owners strive to make their organization a pleasant place to work. However, as the owner of a company, you may not always be present at the workplace. This could make you inadvertently subject to hostile work environment claims. An employment attorney can guide you through mediation proceedings and help you reach an agreement to rectify the situation.

Wrongful Termination

Let’s face it. Layoffs happen, and it’s never an easy situation for the employer or employees. There are also circumstances in which you may need to fire people. Although, this decision is often justified, the former employee may become angry and disagree with your reason for termination. An employment attorney can advise you on benefit cutbacks and represent your company in wrongful termination suits.

Human Capital Management

Your employees are your company’s greatest asset. An employment attorney can guide you through the process of investing in your employees and increasing their productivity and performance through training programs, offering benefits and a fair pay rate, and attracting new talent to your corporation.
