Employment Law is complex and ever-changing. We keep you up-to-date with local, state and federal employment laws so you can concentrate on growing your business.
A business owner’s primary responsibility is to grow the company. Lysaught Law makes sure you do this legally. We will form your business and prepare proper contracts and documentation to lower your risk.
WHAT WE DO
Providing a Value Alternative in the Business & Employment Law Market.
We are available for day-to-day human resource counseling covering a broad range of employment or labor issues. We provide guidance on discipline and termination decisions, leaves of absence, incident investigations, reasonable accommodation requests, reductions-in-force, plant closings and other employment matters. We provide practical advice to employers to ensure compliance with applicable laws, required documentation and recommended procedures. This allows us to minimize our clients risk of liability.
Negotiations for private employers and grievance management.
Employers can prevent most problems in the employment relationship. We work closely with you or your HR professionals to train your employees about employment laws or how best to perform:
Employee performance reviews or discipline
Send appropriate emails
Work employees through a performance improvement plan (PIP) process
Periodic training ensures a productive and legally compliant workforce, lowers conflict and improves company morale.
Employment Law Audit
We will analyze your hiring and termination processes as well as your policies, procedures, job descriptions, and handbook. We will prepare a roadmap of items that must be resolved immediately, as well as items that can be addressed in the future for budgeting purposes.
Policies and Procedures
Let us codify and enhance the practices that made your business successful. We can prepare privacy, email, media, e-discovery, document retention, and blogging and endorsement policies. We also review company policy and procedure manuals to ensure your company’s actions conform to your policies as written.
Has your employee quit or have you fired an employee only to have them file a claim for unemployment? You can fight this claim with our help so your unemployment insurance rates do not increase.
Severance and Executive Package Negotiation
Lysaught Law prepares and negotiates severance packages for both corporate and individual clients. Handling these matters for both employers and employees gives us better insight into what matters are generally negotiable. We also assist businesses and individuals with executive employment packages to help ensure you are presenting or getting the best deal possible.
Do you have an employee handbook? Does it cover not only all of the federal laws that apply to your company, but also all of the state and local laws? Has it been updated in the past three years to comply with guidance from the NLRB and other new laws? Lysaught Law will draft or review and revise your employee handbook so you can be sure that your company is in compliance with all applicable laws.
Family and Medical Leave Act, ADA, retaliation, discrimination, harassment, and other state and federal regulations.
When you start your business, you should prepare a record retention policy that guides you and your employees as to how long important business records should be kept. We can prepare your record-retention policy that will cover not only your paper documents, but your emails and other digital resources as well.
