Experienced Representation for Florida Businesses
While large businesses generally have trained human resource staff and employment law general counsel, small or medium-size businesses may not have those resources at their disposal. As a result, these businesses may not have employee handbooks, or their handbooks may be incomplete or not current with ever-changing employment laws. These businesses may also not have established policies and practices with regard to the hiring process, payroll practices, employee relations, employee complaints, investigations, disciplinary actions and employee terminations.
At Gallup Auerbach, our lawyers provide experienced and focused representation in employment cases at reasonable fees that are often lower than the fees charged by larger firms. We serve clients Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties and throughout Florida.
For owners of a small or medium-size business, the consequences of not having clear policies and practices that conform with current employment laws can be devastating to their livelihood and their future, particularly when an employee raises claims of unlawful employment practices.
Taking Steps To Prevent Employment Law Litigation For Your Business
At Gallup Auerbach, our experienced and knowledgeable employment law attorneys can assist you with all these matters:
- Responding to administrative charges
- Preventing and defending against sexual harassment charges
- Establishing and reviewing corporate compliance and best practices
- Reviewing and creating policies and manuals
- Responding to internal investigations
- Problems with employee misclassification
- Training management and employees in company policies
- Anticipating and responding to wage and hour claims
- Noncompete agreements
- Severance agreements
- Disciplinary actions and termination
In the absence of solid policies, procedures and practices, and, indeed, sometimes even when a business strives to comply with the numerous employment laws out there, employee complaints, administrative actions and lawsuits can arise. If and when your business faces an administrative investigation by governmental agencies such as the Department of Labor (DOL), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Florida Commission on Human Relations (FCHR) or an employee claim or lawsuit, Gallup Auerbach can provide effective and vigorous defense against any type of employment-related claim.
At Gallup Auerbach, however, we don’t just prepare employment agreements, non-compete and confidentiality agreements; we can represent your business’ interests should these agreements be violated. Our lawyers will take swift and assertive measures to stop the violation and recover damages without court intervention, but, if the violation continues or the damages are not recovered, we will pursue all avenues of relief through the judicial system.
