The attorneys in Roetzel’s labor and employment practice know that for any employer, workplace litigation is costly, disruptive, and — in many cases — avoidable.
As part of the comprehensive counseling we provide our clients to help them reduce risk and the frequency of litigation, we offer in-house training programs, webinars, and seminars that keep human resources and company management up to date on labor and employment laws and regulations, while providing the general understanding and legal perspective our clients need to maintain positive and productive workplace environments.
Educated and informed managers and supervisors are an employer’s first line of defense against employment litigation. Accordingly, our programs are designed to educate staff about issues common to all employers, such as the interview process, hiring and firing, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance and data privacy, workplace harassment, employee misconduct, social media use, drug and alcohol abuse, and wage-and-hour compliance. In addition, our legal team develops tailored presentations that address potential problems and provide solutions for resolving specific challenges unique to individual clients.
Employers cannot prevent all workplace issues and claims, but with the comprehensive employment law training and education programs offered by Roetzel’s attorneys, they can reduce the likelihood of lawsuits while establishing affirmative defenses when claims are filed.
