Human Resource Counseling

Human Resource Counseling

Employment laws can be complicated, and too often become an after-thought to a business as operational issues seem to take priority. At Stanton Law, our attorneys are committed to advising employers in all areas of HR and helping ensure your biggest asset – your people – are provided with the appropriate and necessary attention.

If you are a stakeholder, business owner, or HR professional, we help guide your organization to find business solutions to address would-be legal problems. We proactively counsel and develop plans that address your business’ challenges. Helping you address day-to-day employment situations is our specialty.

Our team provides common sense direction on all aspects of the employer-employee relationship, including handbooks and policies, employment agreements and restrictive covenants, wage-and-hour compliance, employee leave, and harassment and discrimiation prevention. We have a particularly effective approach to prevent even the most contentious separations from becoming an unnecessary distraction.

Employment Discrimination & Harassment

With many different discrimination and harassment laws, it can be confusing to know what to do and when to do it. Stanton Law understands the ins and outs of Title VII, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), the Americans with Disability Act (ADA), Uniform Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA), the Equal Pay Act, and other federal, state, and local discrimination statutes, as well as common law causes of action. We tackle these matters head-on so that you can get back to the business at hand.

An employer often only gets one chance to respond properly to an employee’s allegations of workplace law violations. Stanton Law helps ensure you make the most of that limited opportunity and put your business in the best possible legal position moving forward.

Employee Leave

No other employment issue is more fraught with headaches and legal risk than employee leave. Understanding your company’s rights and obligations with respect to medical, family, personal, and other types of leave is critical to your operations, as well your sanity. There’s a reason the Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), and workers compensation statutes are referred to as the “Bermuda Triangle” – let us help you avoid getting lost.

In addition to these broadly applicable (and employee-friendly) federal statutes, Stanton Law is also well versed in the many other state-specific leave laws. Regardless of the situation or location, we will advise you of the best, and lawful, approach for your company when employees require time away from work.
