No one starts a business so they can spend their days as a human-resource professional. However, the reality is that compliance with FLSA, FMLA, OSHA, ADEA, EEOC, PFL, NYSDHR, ADA, ADEA and COBRA (to mention a few) are each potentially vital to the success of your enterprise. Together this alphabet soup of laws and agencies present a human-resources minefield that entrepreneurs must be aware of every day and be prepared to negotiate at a moment’s notice. Our employment attorneys understand the intricacies of crafting employee handbooks and policies, assigning and documenting workers in the proper classifications, wages and overtime issues, reasonably accommodating disabled employees, dealing with paid-sick and family leave requests, lawfully interviewing job applicants, disciplining problem employees, drug-testing, creating a record of performance deficiencies and all manner of issues you’ll confront, sooner or later. We are here to counsel you on any discrete human resources or employment matters or to serve, day-in and day-out, as your backroom HR department.
