Today, more than ever before, the rights and responsibilities of both employers and employees are in sharp focus.
If you are an employer, should you have an employee policy or manual? What policies are required by law? What right does the employer have to discipline or fire an employee? When is the employer’s right to fire constrained?
If you are an employee, are you entitled to a hearing before you are disciplined or terminated? Have you been discriminated against in losing out on a promotion or because you reported that you were harassed by a supervisor?
We provide the answers to these questions and more based on the federal and state laws governing the rights of employees and the obligations of employers, whether in the municipal or private sector. We advise both employers and employees on clarifying their relationships so all parties know what is expected when times are good or problematic.
