Shaping Effective And Responsible Employee Policies

Most employers have every intention of governing their workplaces through dignified, responsible policies that protect the employer and treat the employee fairly at the same time. But the legal obligations and rights of employers and employees can often be difficult to untangle.

At NachtLaw, we help businesses adopt employee handbooks and other policies that reflect the true intentions of the employer and reduce legal liability. Contact us at our offices in Michigan and Ohio to get the assistance of experienced employment law attorneys.

Documenting A Full Range Of Employment Policies

There are a variety of legal considerations you should take into account when adopting your employee handbooks and policies. We will help you address the implications of federal and state employment laws with regard to policies, including the following:

  • Overtime and other wage and hour policies
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) leave policies
  • Accommodation policies under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Discrimination and sex harassment policies
  • At-will employment policies
  • Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) complaint policies
  • Administrative and internal complaint policies

Part of running a serious business is giving serious thought to employment policies with the help of an experienced lawyer and putting those policies in writing in the form of an employee handbook. Contact us to get started on this important process or evaluate your existing materials. We also provide training and implementation oversight. Through our training programs, we make sure HR professionals and management understand your policies and how to carry them out.

Addressing Unique Workplace Circumstances

Many federal and state employment laws apply only to certain types or sizes of businesses. It can be confusing to determine exactly which laws apply to your business and how they apply.

At NachtLaw, we regularly assist small businesses, large businesses, professional offices, nonprofit organizations and other employers with employee handbooks and policies.
