Employment Law Attorney
There are countless federal and state laws that impact the relationship between a business and its employees. JGPC Business Law’s knowledgeable employment law attorneys can help your company get a handle on the many legal rights and responsibilities that you have as an employer, so that you can rest easy knowing that your business is in compliance. In addition, if you have been accused by an employee or by the Department of Labor of running afoul of any legal requirements, we will help you reach a just and timely solution.
Federal Employment Laws
Federal laws that can impact your employment practices include the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which sets minimum wage standards and overtime compensation requirements, the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), which mandates unpaid time off for employees with serious health conditions or relatives in need of care, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), which lays out workplace safety standards. In addition, federal and state laws that govern benefits and insurance programs, including the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), the Social Security Act (SSA), and California’s Unemployment Insurance Code (CUIC), can also factor strongly in your business’ obligations to employees.
JGPC Law’s team of experienced labor and employment attorneys know these statutes inside and out, and can help you understand whether and how they apply to your business. We are happy to assist with the drafting of employment contracts that take into account all relevant considerations, and create a foundation for a mutually beneficial legal relationship between your business and its employees.
Even the best of employers sometimes face complaints from employees, including allegations of discrimination, harassment, wrongful termination, wage and hour violations. Many such complaints can be avoided, with a little advance planning and a strong set of employment policies in place. JGPC Law can review the processes and procedures that your business currently applies in the employment context, and can advise you on the best way to improve these protocols to benefit your business. We will work tirelessly to protect your company and your workers, and preserve your business’ reputation.
In the event that a solution to a dispute with an employee is not immediately forthcoming, we are also poised to provide full representation for employment legal cases, including carrying out discovery, mediation, negotiation, litigation and resolution.
