Employment Law Advocacy For Small Business

Few areas of law have greater impact on small and medium-sized businesses than employment law. Since employment law covers the close relationship between employer and employee, disputes can be heated. They can also be quite costly, as when courts order the employer to pay for an employee's legal expenses on top of paying compensation.

It is great to prevail in litigation. It is better, in the long run, to anticipate problems before they mushroom into issues that threaten profitability and call survival into question.

Experienced Practitioners Of Small-Business Employment Law

Our consultative work is less visible, but every bit as critical to your bottom line:

  • Drafting employee handbooks and policies
  • Consulting on compliance with the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Employer/labor contract negotiations
  • Advising employers about retaining information in personnel files
  • Advising employers about terminations

One of the strengths of our law firm is our ability as trial lawyers. Our attorneys have obtained some of the largest plaintiff verdicts in employment law cases in central Ohio.

As your attorneys, we will not urge you into litigation unless we think it is in your best financial interests to do so. At the beginning of your case, we help you with an economic assessment of the case so you can best decide whether to litigate or negotiate the matter. In the end you will make all decisions about your employment law case. We make sure those are informed decisions.
