EMPLOYMENT POLICIES & PROCEDURES
We often work with employers who want to do the right thing, but don't know how. The lawyers at Berke-Weiss Law PLLC work closely with Human Resources Departments, or employers that are too small to have Human Resources Departments, to remain in compliance with the myriad of statutes governing the employment relationship. We have prepared numerous employee handbooks and employment policies on various subjects, including harassment prevention, social media, reasonable accommodation provisions for disabled employees, and employee time-keeping administration. We advise our clients to ensure that employees are properly classified and paid, avoiding future liability.
Our lawyers advise clients on the need to implement workplace policies, effectively communicate those policies to employees, and keep them updated on new developments in New York and federal law. When employers contact us for assistance with specific employees, we are attuned to other ways the issue may arise throughout their workforce to help identify areas where policies need to be updated or added. The Firm’s lawyers provide training to both management and employees in this regard, and have experience counseling on topics including sexual harassment prevention and retaliation avoidance.
Berke-Weiss Law PLLC also conducts workplace investigations when employees claim that policies have not been followed.
