Employment Matters

Business Lawyers Helping Companies With Hiring Practices, Handbooks, and Employment Contracts

At Sosin, Arnold & Schoenbeck Ltd., we firmly believe that a successful law practice is one that consists of experienced, hardworking professionals who understand the value of cooperation in meeting their clients' needs. The same can be said of any profitable business, especially those that rely on a staff of employees to meet and exceed the expectations of their customers.

The accomplished attorneys at our firm have more than 100 years of combined experience and have earned a well-deserved reputation for their commitment to our clients. We take the time to develop close working relationships with each client, allowing us to become trusted advisors in addition to our role as legal advocates.

Client-Focused Guidance for Employment-Related Concerns

The laws and regulations that govern labor and employment matters are constantly changing. New laws are constantly being considered at the local, state, and federal levels, and the Department of Labor and other agencies issue new rules and interpretations on a regular basis. Amidst the changes, it is up to employers to remain aware and in full compliance with all applicable laws, guidelines, and rules. While doing so can be challenging, our attorneys can help.

At Sosin, Arnold & Schoenbeck Ltd., we are adept at developing:

  • Employment contracts: Depending on your industry and the individual position in question, an employment contract may include a non-compete clause, a non-disclosure clause, and variety of other provisions. We work closely with our clients to ensure that all terms of the contract are reasonable and enforceable;
  • Non-compete or non-disclosure agreements: Some of your employees may not be bound by an employment contract, but depending on the situation, non-compete agreements or non-disclosure agreements could be necessary to protect your company;
  • Employee handbooks: For many companies, an employee handbook is a valuable communication tool between management and employees. Such handbooks must be developed carefully and purposefully, as they are often seen as a form of agreement between the company and its staff. A good handbook sets disciplinary procedures, dress code, and vacation time policies and addresses a variety of other operational concerns so as to clearly set forth the expectations of the employer and minimize the prospect of any disparate treatment of employees that could lead to adverse employee claims; and
  • Compensation structures: Properly classifying employees as exempt or non-exempt under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) is an important consideration in determining competitive compensation and benefits packages. Some companies also rely on independent contractors as well as employees, which could make compensation concerns more diverse and complex.
