First Rate Advice and Counsel Regarding Employment Law For Georgia and South Carolina Healthcare Providers
Many costly legal disputes and mistakes in the area of employment law are easily avoidable. Unfortunately, it can be easy and very tempting for cost-conscious businesses to discount the importance of ensuring that good legal protocol and best practices are in place for screening, hiring, training, compensating, advancing and disciplining employees. Too often, healthcare businesses discount the need to involve legal counsel before or early in a dispute concerning employment law issues. Having your healthcare business’ employment practices reviewed or audited annually is a great way to save significant money over the long term. A single legal dispute in the area of employment law can easily cost a healthcare business tens of thousands of dollars. Our law firm has very significant experience in the area of employment law and often advises healthcare businesses on a range of employment law issues, including handbooks and personnel manuals, training, employment agreements and restrictive covenants, whistleblower laws, and legal claims based on alleged discrimination or retaliation.
Good Practices Avoid Employment Law Issues
The best way to handle an employment law dispute is to avoid it altogether. Our law firm can review your employment practices and spot legal issues that should be addressed to reduce the risks of employment law issues and disputes. When disputes occur, our law firm has significant experience litigating employment law cases at the trial and appellate levels, as well as arbitration, mediation and administrative proceedings.
