Accomplished Employment Law Attorneys for Bay Area Employers
As an employer, navigating the plethora of federal, state, and even local employment laws has never been more challenging. From relatively routine matters such as minimum wage laws to the significant changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act, knowing how to comply with employment law in California while still looking out for your bottom line is more complicated than ever. The Law Offices of Denise Eaton May can guide your business in creating an efficient workplace and addressing disagreements that frequently develop between employers and their workers.
The Importance of Expert Legal Counsel in Employment Law
Employment law covers a wide range of issues, from fair hiring to compensation to healthcare and benefits. Businesses must remain in compliance with all labor laws that apply to their location or risk significant legal penalties. For this reason, expert legal counsel in employment law is invaluable for employers. A knowledgeable attorney can assist companies by providing:
- Comprehensive knowledge of relevant laws.
- Experience in all aspects of business litigation.
- Negotiation skills for mediation and litigation.
- Counsel regarding new policies, benefits and severance packages, and laws.
Working with the right employment law attorney helps protect your firm from potential litigation and defend it should an employee take legal action.
