Training and Education
It is essential for today’s employers to be well-versed in the myriad of employment laws that protect employees at both the state and federal levels. Navigating the complex and ever-changing web of applicable laws, however, can be daunting even for the most seasoned attorneys and human resource professionals. Fortunately, Altus Law Firm makes it a priority to stay on top of the most pressing recent developments in the interwoven legislative, administrative and judicial arenas, and provides training in all areas of employment law. This includes training on:
- Sexual Harassment
- Workplace Investigations
- Leaves of Absence
- Disability Accommodation
- Wage and Hour Compliance
If your company is need of training in these crucial areas, contact Altus Law Firm and get back on track.
Unfortunately, sometimes even the best training and efforts at compliance still cannot prevent problems from occurring. When an employee complains or inappropriate workplace behavior is observed or suspected, it is imperative to address it immediately. Allowing such circumstances to go unresolved creates a host of problems, including lowered morale among workers, a perception that the company doesn’t care and, in the worst situations, legal liability and exposure for the company. Most importantly, the employee who is the subject of the inappropriate behavior will continue suffering. The thoughtful and prudent employer will conduct an impartial and thorough investigation immediately. Altus Law Firm is skilled at conducting workplace investigations for behavior such as sexual harassment, discrimination, retaliation and whistleblowing. If your company has received a complaint or suspects that any of its employees have engaged in such behavior, do not hesitate – contact Altus Law Firm immediately.
