Employment Law

Payroll and Employment-Related Counsel

Payroll can be one of the most challenging aspects of running a business. Do you understand the implications of overtime upon employee travel? How conflicting minimum wage guidelines must be applied to your practice? What if you have a primary office inside a municipality with one minimum wage, but an employee who frequently travels to other locations? Do you understand regulations related to sick days and how to pay them out at the end of the year? The number of issues which can arise related to the payment of your workforce can seem overwhelming. In addition, ensuring that you have proper documentation for your workers is one of the most important processes in human resources. With proper legal counsel, you can feel confident knowing that you are covered, and that all of your questions will be answered. In addition to providing you with personalized guidance, we also draft articles and blogs pertaining to payroll issues in the healthcare workplace in order to provide you with ongoing, up-to-the minute advice. We can assist you with understanding the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and other federal and state regulations which can impact your employees and their compensation. Dealing with employment issues is one of the most cross-cutting topics in the field of business. Because these issues often arise suddenly, proper mitigation needs to be done not only via legal support, but also for public relations purposes. We can provide you with immediate advice and consulting to help meet your needs in these areas.
