Our experienced employment and labor attorneys can help employers maintain a productive working atmosphere while minimizing litigation risk.  We advise clients on recruiting, interviewing and hiring practices; drafting effective personnel policy manuals, personnel leave policies, and wage and hour policies, including overtime pay and employee classification; protecting the employment-at-will relationship; negotiating collective bargaining agreements; and negotiating and drafting confidentiality agreements, non-compete agreements, management agreements, executive compensation packages, and severance packages.  

We also routinely advise clients on matters affecting daily operations, including the education and training of managers and human resources personnel on labor and employment law issues, including employee discipline and termination; implementation of sound policies for investigating complaints of discrimination or sexual harrassment; compliance with state and federal labor and employment laws and regulations, including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA); and legal and business considerations regarding social media.  Gold Weems also provides representation in Employment and Labor Litigation.
