Employment Law for Businesses Owners
At Michel | King, we understand that businesses are the backbone of our economy. While our primary focus is on the employee, experience has shown us that assisting business owners establish and manage their businesses not only provides significant value to the business owner, but substantially benefits their employees as well. As a business owner, it can be difficult to navigate the complex world of employment law. That's why we offer a range of services specifically tailored to help business owners establish and manage the business in a manner that not only protects the business owner’s interests, but also fosters a fair and supportive environment for employees.
One of the most important actions a business can take to effectively manage its labor force is to create a comprehensive employee handbook. This document outlines the policies and procedures of the company and explicitly communicates expectations to employees. At Michel | King, we can help you create an employee handbook specifically tailored to your business needs and objectives, while also ensuring compliance with applicable employment laws.
Employment agreements are another essential tool used by successful businesses. These agreements define terms and conditions of employment, including job duties, compensation, and benefits. By having a solid employment agreement in place, you can protect your business interests and ensure that your employees are treated fairly. Our team of experienced employment attorneys can help you prepare employment agreements tailored to your specific needs.
Businesses face many risks when it comes to employment law, including discrimination claims, breach of contract claims and wage and hour disputes. Our team at Michel | King can help you identify and mitigate these risks by conducting audits of your HR policies and provide guidance as to best practices. In addition, we can provide advice and counsel on how to properly address difficult employment situations, such as employee complaints or disciplinary actions.
While it's impossible to completely avoid the risk of litigation, there are steps you can take to minimize your exposure. At Michel | King, we can help you develop strategies for mitigating litigation risk, such as implementing dispute resolution procedures and conducting regular training sessions for your employees. In addition, should litigation ensue, our attorneys stand ready to provide zealous representation throughout the entire process.
We understand that as an employment law firm, our services could be perceived as "helping the other side" by our existing client base. However, we believe that by providing thoughtful advice and counsel to businesses, we can help ensure that they are treating their employees fairly and in compliance with the law.
Why Choose Us?
At Michel | King, we are committed to protecting employees’ rights. We believe that providing guidance and support to businesses as described above is simply another way to further that commitment. Ultimately, by helping businesses navigate the complex world of employment law, we can help create a fair and just workplace for all.
