Employment Policies And Handbooks
We Review and Craft Effective Employment Policies and Handbooks
Large corporations often rely on in-house corporate counsel to handle legal matters as they arise. Larger companies have formal policies to set expectations for employees and mitigate risks when employment law complaints arise. Small and midsized companies rarely have the resources to hire a full-time lawyer.
At the New York law office of Philip Taubman, we understand that your company needs a qualified legal resource to address employment law matters. As a successful plaintiff’s employment law firm, we see the mistakes companies make on a daily basis. We draw on our extensive trial experience to help companies throughout New York avoid the pitfalls that can lead to costly employment law litigation.
Tailored Plans to Meet Your Business Needs
A tailored personnel plan to prevent misunderstandings, uneven disciplinary practices and ad hoc procedures to handle problems is a vital preventative tool to protect the success of your operation. The knowledge our employment law attorneys have amassed in litigation is a clear strength of our ability to anticipate the problems that should be addressed in your company policies and employee engagement documentation.
Whether you have four employees or 100 in your workforce, having up-to-date employment policies and handbooks in place is critical to the success of your business. A carefully drafted personnel manual is an effective tool to set expectations and communicate your mission to new and current workers. However, there can be numerous pitfalls.
Creating Up-to-Date Policies to Comply with New York Law
You need to be sure that your policies and manuals are state-of-the-art and comply with the current employment laws at the local, state and federal levels. Moreover, New York courts may view a poorly drafted document as a de facto employment contract, defeating your purpose of protecting your company’s bottom line.
We work directly with businesses in Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Staten Island and the surrounding communities of Long Island and Westchester to provide cost-efficient proactive employment law solutions to protect our clients’ rights as employers. We offer knowledgeable guidance in crafting policies that are tailored to the individual needs of the business. We provide managers with training in employment law matters to further reduce the risk of future litigation. When disputes arise, small and midsized businesses rely on our aggressive trial lawyers for vigorous advocacy and skilled representation at all levels of the employment law dispute resolution process in New York.
