We'll help keep your workplace working.
Sound advice for human management.
The workplace is fraught with potential legal problems. Employers are responsible for complying with an ever-changing set of rules that frequently defy common business sense. If the employer fails to comply with its obligations, productivity and morale can suffer, and costly litigation can ensue. Employers need sound advice to avoid these perils.

they face and decisions they must make. The topics include:

Because we believe that the best way to deal with problems is to prevent them
, we counsel clients on policy and handbook design and implementation. We also provide extensive training on employment issues.
