Employment law is sometimes about good news: developing, drafting and reviewing employment contracts and employment policies and procedures to make sure you, whether you're the employer or the employee, are protected. By addressing and clarifying issues including compensation, reporting relationships and the obligations of each party during the working relationship, we can protect your interests and lay the groundwork for a profitable and productive employment partnership.
