Managing a business is difficult. One aspect of this difficulty is the management of employees. Bringing on workers means having to comply with health and safety regulations, with wage and overtime requirements, human resource issues, and making sure that employees are actually living up to their responsibilities. It is too common for disputes to arise involving the conduct and actions of employees. By retaining a business law attorney, who is experienced in handling worker-related issues, you help to ensure that such distractions are kept to a minimum. Holly Meyer is a Long Island lawyer assisting small and medium sized businesses with various employment related issues. She works to provide a high level of service and to ensure that your needs are met. Contact our office today to schedule an initial consultation. We also serve those in Queens, Brooklyn, and other New York areas.
Long Island attorney assisting with the drafting of employee contracts, non-competition agreements, and other important documents
There is no shortage of ways in which employees can initiate a dispute with their employer. Disagreements may involve an independent contractor claiming they were actually an employee (in an effort to gain benefits), disagreements over the amount which one was to be paid, claims of a wrongful termination, and more. Well-drafted agreements and guidelines can be used to clearly define the rights, responsibilities, and compensation of a worker. This, in turn, can leave a worker with less options for taking action against their employer. Examples of documents which can be used to protect the rights of a company include:
- Employment agreements
- Employee handbooks
- Non-competition agreements
- Confidentiality agreements
- Independent contractor agreements
These types of documents need to be formulated and drafted in a way that will foresee, and deal with, as many different situations as possible. They must also be clear, unambiguous, and easy for the worker to understand. Retaining an experienced lawyer can help with ensuring that these types of matters are handled properly.
