Experienced Legal Advocacy For Employment Law Matters

A Law Firm Helping Employers Simplify Legal Complexities

Most people who are not business owners fail to appreciate just how complicated personnel matters can be. The considerations go far beyond hiring the right workers and firing those who aren’t adding value. As a business owner or executive, you are responsible for everything that workers need and the law requires throughout each employee’s tenure.

Thankfully, help is available. Traub Law offers a wide range of employment law counseling services meant to keep your business running smoothly and efficiently.

Employment Law Compliance For Small To Medium-Sized Businesses

Most business owners want to comply with employment law. However, these laws are complex, frequently changing and difficult to understand. By providing advice and counsel to businesses in the state of New Jersey on how to comply with these laws, I can help you prevent workplace problems from occurring in the first place. I have carefully developed a suite of employment law compliance solutions aimed at helping small to medium-sized enterprises understand their obligations and prevent employment litigation. They are described below.

Employment practices training: Materials and programs are designed to educate business owners, managers, human resources professionals and employees about the wide range of legal obligations imposed by state and federal employment laws. The goal is to help clients manage and mitigate the risk of being sued for violating employment laws, including:

    • Preventing workplace harassment and discrimination
    • Investigating allegations of workplace harassment
    • Hiring do’s and don’ts
    • Managing performance
    • Effective disciplinary practices
    • Handling terminations and resignations
    • Effectively handling FMLA leaves
    • Complying with disability laws
    • HIPAA compliance
    • Unemployment insurance benefits guidance
    • Strategies for protecting confidential information and preventing employee raiding
    • Correct application of wage and hour laws

Policy and document preparation: I can help you craft policies and draft legally sound documents that include:

    • Employee handbooks
    • Workplace harassment policies
    • Leave of absence policies and notices
    • Drug-testing policies
    • Electronic communication policies
    • Noncompete/nonsolicitation agreements
    • Confidentiality agreements
    • Employment agreements

Business and legal advice: Receive experienced input on both difficult and common personnel issues, such as:

    • Prevention of workplace harassment and discrimination
    • Disability issues and reasonable accommodation requests
    • Leaves of absence
    • Internal investigations
    • Wage and hour compliance
    • Restrictive covenants and confidentiality
    • Workplace privacy
    • Workplace violence
    • Drug and alcohol use
    • Performance evaluations
    • Disciplinary actions and termination decisions
    • Compensation and benefits
    • Recruiting, advertising and interviewing
    • ERISA compliance
    • HIPAA requirements
    • Workplace audits to determine if the employer is in compliance with the above

Workplace Investigations

When issues do arise, the goal is to ensure that harassment, discrimination and retaliation complaints are promptly and thoroughly investigated. In the alternative, I can advise in-house personnel on how to conduct an effective investigation themselves. There are several benefits to these investigations, including employers limiting liability for the conduct, a reduced likelihood of litigation and the ability to use the results to make informed decisions.
