Employment Law

Now, more than ever, business owners, managers, supervisors and human resource professionals must navigate the minefield of federal, state and local laws and regulations governing the employer/employee relationship. Considering the litigious climate that permeates American society, it is critical for employers of all sizes to be mindful of, and in compliance with, the many employment laws and regulations with which employers must abide. Whether it be the hiring or firing process, alleged harassment or discrimination in the workplace, employee classification issues or the simple drafting of an Employee Handbook, there are many opportunities for an unwary employer to find itself in trouble. The employment lawyers at HRMM&L are here to help employers navigate these laws and avoid potentially costly litigation. Those matters about which the employment lawyers at HRMM&L routinely consult with employers include:

  • Employee Handbooks
  • Workplace Harassment Training and Investigation
  • Employee Hiring
  • Employee Discipline
  • Family Medical Leave Act
  • Americans With Disabilities Act
  • Title VII
  • Fair Labor Standards Act
  • National Labor Relations Act
  • Pennsylvania Human Relations Act
  • Pennsylvania Minimum Wage Act
  • Employee Classification (Independent Contractor) Issues
  • Non-Competition Agreements
  • Wage Payment and Overtime Issues
  • Representation before the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
  • Unemployment Compensation Appeals
