When it comes to protecting your company against lawsuits from employees, is your company wearing its legal armor?
Employment law seems to change with the tide; each new high-profile case seems to change the law that preceded it. With many different courts and governing agencies interpreting employment laws differently, the laws that you printed out in your company handbook may very well be out of date. When you factor in the unexpected chain of events that can quickly transpire between employers and employees, a sudden termination, or disciplinary act against an employee can lead to an expensive suit against you, the employer.
While you may not necessarily feel the need to consult with an employment lawyer every time you greet your employees, it’d be in both you, and your company’s best interest to consult with an employment lawyer when issues arise with a troublesome employee. Castro C.L.A.N.’s knowledgeable employment lawyers keep abreast of current Federal, New York State, and New York City employment laws, and will give you sound counsel on the best way to handle your specific situation, as well as the help you develop the necessary policies to prevent yourself, and your company from being on the receiving end of a lawsuit.
Having an employment lawyer is an invaluable asset that allows your business to operate at its full potential, minimizing the risk of an expensive lawsuit. Any employer that has employees knows that the paperwork alone can be tedious, and the process of protecting your business can be overwhelming. As an employer, handling your own contracts and agreements between yourself and your employees can be a risky ordeal.
