Employment Law for Employers

The employment lawyers at Beck & Eldergill handle all types of matters for small and mid-sized businesses. It is increasingly difficult for employers to ensure that they are complying with applicable laws or to make decisions about how to handle personnel situations. One service our firms offers is simply being “on call” for employers who may need to periodically consult with an attorney regarding questions about how to deal with a particular situation which may occur at work. Employers often live in fear that if they take some action against an employee that is not working out, that employee is going to turn around and file a lawsuit against them. Unfortunately, an employer cannot prevent an employee from filing a claim, but they can improve their business and workplace morale by making tough decisions regarding employees who are a drain on your business or who have become a liability. Before you make an employment decision regarding a problem employee, contact our office so that we may assist you in making the best decision for your business.

In the event an employee has filed a claim against you, either with a governmental agency or in state or federal court, our attorneys have experience defending all types of claims. Our goal is to give you practical and realistic advice so that you can make the best decisions for your business. Unfortunately, any employee can file a claim against you, even where you have not engaged in any wrongdoing. This can cause a drain not only on your resources, but also on workplace morale. We will make the process as easy as possible for you, so that you may concentrate on running your business. Contact us today if you have an employee who has made a claim, or threatened to make a claim, against you.
