Payne & Fears LLP labor and employment attorneys recognize that sometimes the best legal defense is preventing employment litigation. Our attorneys regularly counsel employers on the legal implications of personnel decisions, the latest court cases, statutory and regulatory requirements and legal trends to ensure that they remain in compliance with state and federal laws and avoid unnecessary litigation.
Our attorneys are also experienced in developing management training programs and employee education programs, creating effective employee manuals, implementing union avoidance strategies and providing immigration advice.
We have significant experience providing legal counseling on important personnel issues, including:
We regularly provide training and educational programs for lawyers, senior management, human resources professionals, and other members of management and supervision. These programs are specifically structured to be responsive to the needs of particular clients. The subjects or practice areas in which we most frequently present such programs include avoidance of litigation - such as wrongful termination, sexual harassment, and employment discrimination – equal employment opportunity, union avoidance, and discharge/discipline.
We assist our clients in recruiting, employing and retaining international talent. We work closely with our clients to obtain work authorization and other immigration benefits for their valued employees. In addition, we counsel companies with regard to I-9 compliance, the anti-discrimination provisions of the immigration laws, and Social Security non-match concerns.
