Employment Law Practice Overview
By far and away, or employment lawyers spend more time providing employment law advice to both employers and employees than any other employment related service. Many employers use Strauss Law Group as an “outside” HR resource and we consult regularly on issues involving hiring, firing, layoffs, leaves of absence, personnel policies, travel expenses and a myriad of other issues that arise in the work place. We also consult with employees who feel that they have not been treated correctly, believe that they were inappropriately terminated or want us to review a severance package presented by their employer.
Whether it is advising employers or employees, we strive to provide timely and effective advice concerning this ever changing and complicated area of law.
Strauss Law Group has been preparing employee handbooks for its business clients for decades. We have found that employee handbooks go a long way toward protecting employers from liability from discrimination, wrongful termination, and overtime lawsuits. What is more, employee handbooks can serve as guides for employers on how they should treat their employees; hence, they help ensure that employers never cross the line and violate California or federal laws.
