It can be helpful to have an experienced employment lawyer who can properly assess the situation and propose the best solution based on the merits of the case.
There are many areas of business law that all business owners need to be familiar with and have an attorney they trust to handle. Some legal matters affect only larger businesses, whereas some, such as employment laws, affect even the smallest mom-and-pop businesses when they hire their first employee. At Jones, Childers, Donaldson & Webb, PLLC, our legal team is just what you need to protect yourself from potentially devastating legal matters.
An employment lawyer guides you on matters that affect your relationship with your employees. You’ll be apprised of such concerns as civil rights, safe working conditions, overtime pay requirements, minimum wage laws, family and medical leave, discrimination, hiring and termination practices, and all the other laws and regulations that can help you avoid a confrontation with a disgruntled employee or applicant you didn’t hire. In addition, should you face such a confrontation, we’ll represent you and go over whether it is best to offer a modest settlement or fight the claim. Since every situation is different, it can be helpful to have an experienced employment lawyer who can properly assess the situation and propose the best solution based on the merits of the case.
