At Skoler Abbott, we believe that in many cases, careful employment practices can lessen the likelihood of employment litigation or, at the very least, improve the likelihood of success.
To that end, we offer counseling and training in a wide variety of employment-related areas, including:
- Sexual and other unlawful harassment
- Wage and hour laws
- Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), the Family and Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), and Workers’ Compensation law
- Proper documentation
- Lawful hiring, firing, and disciplining of employees
In addition, the Firm develops and reviews company policies, procedures, employee handbooks, affirmative action plans, and other company documents; conducts formal audits of personnel practices; and assists in planning for reductions-in-force or layoffs, with emphasis on employers’ obligations under the WARN Act, drafting separation agreements and releases, and developing voluntary separation/early retirement programs. For more information regarding the Firm’s Practice Areas, please visit our Practice Areas page.
We believe that a prompt answer to a pressing problem can often prevent costly litigation, so when our clients have employment concerns, we make those concerns a top priority.
