We Help New York City Small Businesses
Effective Employment Law Guidance for Small Businesses in New York City
If you own a small business in New York, your company must comply with a number of important employment laws. In particular, if you employ four or more people, you are exposed to several different types of discrimination litigation.
An accusation of employment discrimination can have serious negative effects on a small company, including financial losses, a damaged reputation and reduced morale. At The law office of Philip Taubman, we are dedicated to helping local businesses avoid these consequences. We give our clients the tools they need to prevent discrimination and other unlawful practices; if our clients are targeted by a lawsuit, our attorneys will provide a skilled defense of their interests.
We Can Help Create Contracts and Policies for Your Small Business
Our small business lawyers provide a wide range of legal services designed to help you avoid allegations of discrimination.
- Creating employee handbooks: It is important for all small businesses to have an employee handbook. A strong handbook clearly establishes an employer’s expectations regarding discrimination, harassment and other unlawful practices.
- Developing workplace policies: Our lawyers will help you develop legally sound policies regarding sexual harassment, hostile work environment, discrimination and other serious issues.
- Reviewing employee contracts: Contracts clearly establish the relationship between employer and employee. If you are preparing an employee contract, our law firm can help you ensure that the document serves your company’s needs.
